Northumbria open event for nurses, midwives and operating department practitioners
Nurses, midwives and operating department practitioners (ODPs) interested in joining the trust which has the best staff morale in the country are being encouraged to come and meet the team at an event later this month.
Matrons and members of the nursing, midwifery and theatre team from Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust will be on hand at The Northumbria hospital from 9am to 11am on Saturday 21 September to talk to people about career opportunities across Northumberland and North Tyneside.
The trust received the highest score of acute trusts for staff morale in the national NHS staff survey published earlier this year and, overall, had one of the strongest performances with employees feeling listened to, highly motivated and engaged with their work.
One of England’s top performing trusts, Northumbria Healthcare has nursing and midwifery roles available in hospitals and in the community and, in particular, is looking to recruit people to work in elderly care, operating theatres and community and district nursing.
For those people wanting to pursue working at The Northumbria hospital, people will have the opportunity to have a look around on the day and set up a visit if interested in joining one of the many teams at one of the trust’s general or community hospitals or in community nursing.

Elaine Henderson, director of nursing delivery at Northumbria Healthcare, said: “With our staff morale the best in the country, now is a great time to join our trust and we’d encourage registered nurses, midwives and operating department practitioners to come along and meet our team and learn more about what we offer.
“We’ll have a range of staff on hand – from matrons to newly-qualified – to chat to people about what it’s like to work at Northumbria, both in hospitals and in the community, and find out about the support we give to nurses, midwives and ODPs to develop with us.
“Our Northumbria hospital has some of best facilities in the north east and on the day people will have to chance to have a look around a particular ward or department and get a feel for what it would be like to work there. Equally, if people are interested in working elsewhere in our trust, we’d be more than happy to arrange a visit.
“We look forward to welcoming registered nurses, midwives and ODPs at any stage of their career to Northumbria hospital on 21 September.”
All Northumbria nurses, midwives and ODPs are fully supported with newly-qualified staff benefitting from one of the most extensive ‘preceptorship’ programmes in the NHS during the first year.
