Our staff are never just a number, they are part of one team that is supported by our amazing patients and community.
As a teaching hospital, we place a great emphasis on learning and development, making sure you can be the best you can be, whatever your chosen career path.
We have a thriving charity that works with our community and that has enabled us to provide an extra focus on staff health and wellbeing. One legacy of COVID-19 will be a greater focus on mental health and wellbeing and we have created a Sanctuary Hub to give our staff a dedicated space to destress and focus on themselves.
We are inclusive and welcoming for all backgrounds and beliefs, and are committed to widening participation. We have thriving staff networks including BAME, LGBTQ+ and Disability to provide extra support to staff.
We operate across two sites, Warrington and Halton hospitals which are just a few miles apart. The Warrington site, which houses all our acute services, was designed with a smaller population in mind, so we are working on a masterplan and business case to build a state-of-art new hospital which will meet the future needs of our local population.
At Halton our The Captain Sir Tom Moore Building is home to our orthopaedic facility and a range of care for medical and surgical conditions is provided at the Nightingale Building in Runcorn and it houses a mix of inpatient and outpatient services. It provides a fantastic, friendly environment for expert surgical care.
Over the past few months we’ve been investing in facilities for staff to rest and take time out from the challenges of caring for patients with COVID. As well as dedicated Sanctuary Hub, our Wingman Lounge staffed by volunteer airline crew, we’re increase breakout areas so staff can take a break.
At our hospitals we have a range of shops and retail outlets offering discounts for staff.
