Shape your story as a critical care nurse

We are looking for nurses to join our critical care workforce and be a part of looking after our critical care patients in east London and beyond. 

We have critical care units in four of our hospitals. Each hospital has something different to offer, and all are looking for critical care nurses who are keen to develop, grow and shape their nursing career, as a part of hard-working teams. Whether you are an experienced critical care nurse, or are looking to move to critical care, we’re keen to hear from you.
