A great place to work

Sherwood Forest Hospitals is an award-winning NHS Foundation Trust providing acute and community healthcare services for 420,000 people across Mansfield, Ashfield, Newark, Sherwood and parts of Derbyshire and Lincolnshire. We employ over 5000 people across our three hospital sites - King’s Mill, Newark and Mansfield Community.

In May 2020, King’s Mill Hospital, where 90% of our services are based, was rated Outstanding by the Care Quality Commission, the only Outstanding hospital in the East Midlands. Newark Hospital and Mansfield Community Hospital are both rated Good. Whilst all of our 15 services are rated Good for Safety with five Outstanding services. Our CQC assessment is based on year on year improvements in staff engagement, safety, access and finance. 

We’re proud of our five-year strategy, Healthier Communities, Outstanding Care which launched in April 2019 and reflects how we’re moving beyond thinking like a hospital, by working with health and LA partners to focus on the wider wellbeing of communities with a shared budget.

Our staff engagement is the best in the Midlands and we believe continuing to support and encourage colleagues and working closely with partners means the best is yet to come.

We’re proud of what we’ve already achieved and how we’ve achieved it. We believe we are a great place to work. We have an exciting future ahead of us and we would like you to be part of it
