Then we would like to see you at our open day on Saturday 10th March 2018 to find out more about us and to see whether you would like to join us at #TeamQEH.

There has never been a more exciting time to join us. We are going through a time of major transformation, which is bringing with it new opportunities to work in different ways to improve the patient experience. 

Patients are our first priority… but we know that we can’t deliver the level of service expected from us without motivated, committed, qualified and enthusiastic staff.

Therefore, staff are a key priority and we are committed to recruiting and retaining the best.

Our experienced practice development teams will support your on-going professional development and learning needs from preceptorship in your foundation year through to specialist programmes across all grades and banding levels. We will do this by embracing our vision of sharing learning that is valued, where everyone can reach their full potential, empowering you to deliver exemplary patient centred care.

The Queen Elizabeth Hospital is a busy acute hospital serving the communities of West Norfolk, South Lincolnshire and North East Cambridge. Our catchment area covers the towns of King’s Lynn, Wisbech, Hunstanton, Downham Market and Swaffham, with the remainder of the population in villages and hamlets across an area of more than 750 square miles. The population of this area is approximately 331,000 people.

Our population profile includes a high proportion of older residents, since this is a popular coastal retirement area. However, new housing developments in recent years have seen large population growth in towns such as Downham Market, principally of families with children

West Norfolk is a special place of unspoilt charm and natural beauty. It has superb sandy beaches and wonderful countryside where you can enjoy a wide range of leisure activities. There are a variety of festivals that take place and a vast array of historic sites for you to explore.

If you are a dynamic and passionate individual who enjoys a challenge we would like you to come to our Open Day on Saturday 10th  March 2018, where you will have the opportunity to meet with some of our existing staff and to find out more about us and working in West Norfolk.

The Day will comprise of the following:

  • From 10 until midday you will have the chance to explore what King’s Lynn, West Norfolk and The Queen Elizabeth Hospital have to offer through a variety of stalls with local exhibitors, information stands and current staff to sit and chat and have a coffee with in our Inspire Centre
  • Tour of the Hospital (if requested)
  • In the afternoon attend an Interview (subject to a successfully shortlisted application and dependent on your chosen area – further details will be given on application)

Members of the Resourcing Team will be in attendance to advise on any questions about the recruitment process and pre-employment checks.
