Birmingham Children’s Hospital (BCH) and Birmingham Women’s Hospital (BWH) have a tremendous sense of shared mission and purpose, and have enjoyed a close working relationship for decades – particularly at the clinical level. Both trusts are currently working towards becoming a single organisation and the earliest this would take place is early 2017, subject to NHS Improvement approval. The proposed integration would mean that BWH staff will be subject to TUPE.
As a potential applicant we wanted to make you aware of the intentions of both BCH and BWH. We will be happy to provide more information should you request it, via the recruitment department or the recruiting manager.
WE WOULD ENCOURAGE ALL APPLICANTS TO APPLY EARLY AS THIS VACANCY MAY CLOSE EARLIER THAN THE STATED CLOSING DATE ONCE WE RECEIVE SUFFICIENT APPLICATIONS. WE DO NOT ACCEPT CVs
All your referees email addresses must be provided on your application form.
BCH is a teaching hospital and as such you may come into contact with students of many disciplines. Staff must comply with Trust policy and respective regulatory body requirements in relation to training and updating and fulfill duties of mentorship and assessment as required.
