Job Description

Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust was formed in October 2013, following the merger of Lewisham Healthcare NHS Trust and Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Woolwich. The Trust was named as one of the top 100 healthcare employers in HSJ's 2014 survey on the best places to work.

Over the last year, key developments have included:

  • Ongoing work with health and social care partners to reduce A&E waiting times and improve the discharge process.
  • Improvements to how we manage patient information – with the introduction of new systems of electronic patient records at Queen Elizabeth Hospital and University Hospital Lewisham.
  • Our ongoing recruitment campaign, which has increased the number of permanent staff by over 400 since the merger.
  • Work to improve infection control, such as the introduction of new hand hygiene foam or gel dispensers in public areas around our sites.
  • New services and facilities, such as the midwifery-led Greenwich Birth Centre, which opened in May 2015.

We will continue to work with staff and local people to deliver improvements. In return for your dedication and hard work, we offer well-established, structured mentoring and staff development packages to support you in your role.
