A great place to work

Sherwood Forest Hospitals Trust remains one of the best NHS organisations in the country to work for according its own staff, with the Trust also retaining its crown as the Midlands’ best to work at for an incredible sixth year.

The results of the annual NHS National Staff Survey that were announced in March 2024 revealed that 74.45% of Trust staff recommended the organisation as a place to work. That result places the Trust third among all NHS organisations nationally as a place where staff recommend working.

This April, the Trust's new five year strategy came into effect.

The strategy sets out our vision and how we plan to deliver outstanding care, provided by compassionate people, enabling healthier communities and improving lives. In the next five years, we want to be known as an outstanding local hospital that consistently delivers quality services for our patients.

We will achieve this by delivering consistently outstanding care by compassionate people who feel enabled and supported to do their best by Sherwood Forest Hospitals.

To deliver our vision, we have set out 6 strategic objectives.

  1. To provide outstanding care in the best place at the right time.
  2. To empower and support our people to be the best they can be.
  3. To improve health and well-being within our communities.
  4. To continuously learn and improve.
  5. To use resource and estate in a sustainable manner.
  6. To work collaboratively with partners in our local community.

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