Our staff and volunteers strive to ensure patients are at the centre of our decision making.

At SFH we value our staff.  We know happy, well supported staff provide high quality care to patients.

We have the highest staff engagement scores across the Midlands and in 2018 the Care Quality Commission assessed us as Good Overall and Outstanding for the Care we provide.

We offer a growing range of staff benefits, excellent training facilities and a modern, well equipped working environment. We are committed to supporting colleagues to maximise their potential and enjoy satisfying careers, underpinned by our staff health and wellbeing strategy; ‘Happy, Healthy, Here’.

We are looking for a Registered Nurse who can demonstrate to us that they can make a difference to our patient experience by their caring attitude, commitment and support to continually improve and enhance the patient experience and pathway. You will be joining an enthusiastic, friendly, motivated multidisciplinary team who are committed to high quality patient care. You should have excellent communication skills and a positive attitude towards both your professional development and contributing to the development of the service.
