Working at The Royal London

The Royal London, Mile End and Community Health Services

The 727-bed Royal London Hospital is one of the UKs largest and most advanced healthcare facilities.

Many of the specialist services at The Royal London are recognised regionally, nationally and internationally. Our Hyper Acute Stroke Unit (HASU) is recognised for providing the best care to stroke patients across London, our major trauma centre cares for some of the most seriously injured patients across London and our renal services have won awards for their innovative apporaches.

As the UK’s leading trauma and emergency care centre, The Royal London Hospital is also the home of London’s Air Ambulance, which operates from a special area on the roof, as well as Europe’s largest renal service.

A dedicated unit for women and children features London’s second-largest pediatric service. The hospital also offers general acute services for the City of London and Tower Hamlets.

Services at The Royal London are housed in contemporary glass buildings of two 17-story towers, one equipped with the helipad for London’s Air Ambulance, and a 10-story tower. These new facilities, opened in 2012, form a health campus incorporating the neighboring Queen Mary University of London’s Medical School, the School of Midwifery and the Dental Hospital.

The design creates a state-of-the-art medical facility that blends in with existing historic buildings dating back to the 18th century.

Why work for us?

The Royal London is recognised as a teaching hospital and has a full range of local and specialist services, including one of the largest children’s hospitals in the UK.

There is huge scope for development and rotation across different specialisms meaning you could work as a nurse for adult critical care in our trauma centre or as a nurse in London’s busiest paediatric accident and emergency centres.

We offer a supportive working environment with access to our education academy and support for our highly developed staff. Midwives, nursing and support staff can gain a range of experiences at all stages of their career.

If you are a newly qualified nurse or midwife we welcome you to join our team and will offer a preceptorship programme to support you along with an education package to develop your skills. If you are an experienced midwife or nurse we would be delighted to hear from you and discuss our opportunities.

What our staff say

Tara SheaTara Shea, play team lead
"I have been working at Barts Health for the past seven years and wouldn’t want to work anywhere else. There is a real sense of team working and everyone is constantly trying to improve the care provided to patients. I have never worked in an environment where I feel so valued, but also supported in developing new services to ensure that we are constantly offering innovative clinics, resources and research. All that combined with a lovely East End character, there is no better place to work."

Nicola RudkinNicola Rudkin, matron, Adult Critical Care Unit
I joined the Trust back in 2004 and after 11 years I have recently been appointed as matron for ACCU. It has been quite a journey, but I've had so much support and encouragement along the way.  My job continues to challenge and reward me every single day and I now have the pleasure of leading the most phenomenal team. I am proud to be part of Barts Health and there is nowhere else I would rather work."
