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 want all patients to receive the level of care we expect our friends and family to receive and we are making progress with this aim. 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’. 

If our vision and values appeal to you, now is the time to join #Team SFH. 


At Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust you get to be part of the team helping shape the changing structures of health and social care today.

We are looking for an experienced, dynamic and enthusiastic colleague to join our team in General Medicine working as Head of Service across two busy clinical specialties providing clinical leadership to each whilst working in partnership with Matrons, Divisional Management Team and others ensuring effective management and support for clinical staff.

With support from the Divisional Management Team the role will comprise a number of key areas of responsibility in each specialty including:

  • Clinical performance
  • Clinical governance
  • Contractual performance
  • Financial performance
  • Operational performance
  • With the support of the Divisional Management Team, lead the strategic development of the service.
  • Representing the service at relevant meetings with Commissioners and participate in the agreeing/reviewing of Key Performance Indicators.

NB: Whilst the role of Head of Service involves working closely with specialist clinical teams the post is open to applicants both with or without a clinical background.

When you join SFH you also join a team passionate about improving care and treatment options for patients today and in the future. You could make a difference to people like Roger who’s been part of our prostate cancer study for the last five years. You can see the massive difference research has made to him and his family here.

So if you are looking to join a team at a modern and innovative Trust which is easy to get to then let us be your next career move.
