This is a great opportunity for experienced Nurses to join our team and be part of something amazing. We pride ourselves on the support we give our new staff and believe that our ward creates the perfect, supportive environment to guide you through your first few years as a Registered Nurse.
Children's Services at The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust is an exciting place to be. We are looking for dynamic, inspired, and enthusiastic Nurses who have a passion to care and are always looking to make it better.

If this sounds like you, please get in touch today.
You will be joining a friendly supportive team, working in a modern, bright unit. Rated ‘Good ‘by CQC, we provide care for 33 in-patients in our purpose built facility at The Princess Royal Hospital, Telford. We care for children from ages 0-16 years, and you can be sure to gain experience in caring for children with medical, surgical, orthopaedic, complex needs, CAMHS respiratory and metabolic conditions.
Working closely with our Emergency Department we look after acutely ill children. We have an 8 bedded Children's Assessments Unit within which our staff are able to develop skills in triage and PGD. On our ward we provide advanced care to children requiring interventions such as tracheostomy care, CPAP or high flow oxygen. We are commissioned to provide care for children with oncology needs in our dedicated, 3 bedded, purpose built area.
We also have an experienced team of specialist nurses in Gastroenterology, Respiratory, Epilepsy and Oncology who support our patients and learning needs of our team. At The Royal Shrewsbury Hospital we have a Children's Out Patient facility along with a day unit.
