There are many good reasons to choose to come and work at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
1st September 2015 was a landmark date for Chelsea and Westminster and West Middlesex hospitals as we officially came together to form the enlarged Foundation Trust. This helps secure the future of both major acute hospitals and by combining into a single, unified trust there will be more scope to innovate and develop even better services for our patients.
We aim to be a hospital of choice for patients and an employer of choice for staff. In order to improve all aspects of the patient experience, we rely upon having a highly skilled, motivated, diverse, productive and patient focused workforce. Our vision is to be a first class hospital for our community and we will build a strong and sustainable foundation trust which provides high-quality, value-for-money services to meet the health needs of the local population. It' s a very exciting time to come and work for us.
