Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust

Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust formed in 2013 is responsible for University Hospital Lewisham (UHL), Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH), a range of community services in Lewisham and some services at Queen Mary’s Hospital in Sidcup. We serve a population of more than 666,000 people across Lewisham, Greenwich and Bexley, employ 6,500 staff and have 901 beds across our two hospitals. We have made many improvements including important clinical developments at our hospitals. Recently at QEH we’ve opened two short-stay wards that sit in a brand new building next to the Emergency Department (Wards 22 and 23) and significantly upgraded our CT scanning and endoscopy services. Developments at UHL include a mental health crisis café called The Harbour, the opening of Lewisham Dialysis Centre on site, a new MRI scanner and optimised conditions in our theatres. Our journey of improvement doesn’t end there with plans for ongoing improvements in the pipeline. Our vision is to work together to provide high quality care for every patient, every day. Our staff put patients at the heart of everything they do – there is a genuine commitment to providing the best services we can for the local population. This is reflected in the positive feedback we receive from patients, and by the number of Trust staff who have won national awards for best practice. By joining us now, you can play a role in making this vision a reality You’ll find a real sense of togetherness and positivity across our workforce, a spirit that we harness to improve services and make our Trust a great place to work. For our staff as well as the many benefits offered to all NHS staff from annual leave and pensions, we also offer a range of flexible working patterns (such as part-time working, job sharing and compressed hours) as well as a wide range of benefits to support staff health and wellbeing, training and development, staff recognition and awards and access to many discounts (cars, holidays and bicycles).
