Visiting update

From 1 January 2022, we have taken the difficult decision to suspend adult in-patient visiting in order to help protect our vulnerable patients. Please visit here for more information. 

Patient appointments

As we continue to see a rise in our urgent care admissions, a surge in admissions of Covid positive patients, and workforce shortages created by Covid isolation, some appointments for planned care may need to be delayed.

We will continue to prioritise urgent and emergency care and cancer treatments and we will do everything we can to avoid delaying care. If we need to take the difficult decision to delay appointments, we will contact affected patients directly to let them know. 

If you do not hear from us, please attend as requested in your appointment letter.

Student nurses


If you want to make a difference to people's lives as well as enhance your learning experiences, consider a placement with us. 

The Trust is built on the dedication and hard work of our staff and we are very proud of our highly-skilled workforce. 

Perhaps there may be an area of particular interest to you.  It may be somewhere you are thinking about working once qualified.  We have teams who have been specifically prepared to take students for their elective placement such as tissue viability, infection control, drugs and alcohol liaison and safeguarding.  These are in addition to those who also take students on their regular placements such as genitourinary medicine, Newark Hospital's Urgent Care Centre and the research and innovation team.  Perhaps your learning would be enhanced by spending your time in two related areas - we are happy to look at bespoke placements where appropriate. 

We offer a strong commitment to your well-being and development and provide the best possible support from experienced staff in your chosen area. 

As well as a rewarding placement, the Trust offers a range of benefits including: 

A central Midlands location easily accessible from many areas
