  • "I enjoyed it so much I stayed!"

    "I trained as a midwife at Newham Hospital 19 years ago and enjoyed it so much that I stayed! The experience that one gets whilst working at Newham Hosptial is that of belonging to a family. Midwifery practice here is fast paced but always woman/ birthing person focussed. Despite the challenges that arise, we always endeavour to let our actions be respectful, safe and inclusive."

    Jenise Jarvis, midwifery matron at Newham Hospital

  • Evelina Hepp - Audiologist

    As an audiologist, I carry out tests and support people with hearing and balance diagnoses – from newborns to older generations. I help them to develop and maintain their communication needs and supporting their mental health and life outcomes.

    It’s a really rewarding career and I’m proud to be part of the healthcare science community.


  • "There are lots of opportunities to learn"

    “Working as an anaesthesiologist at Newham Hospital is incredibly rewarding and it is fascinating how the hospital is rapidly evolving and improving. We treat patients with a lot of different health problems, which means there are lots of opportunities to learn new things.”

    Flavio Severgnini, medical consultant at Newham Hospital 

  • "I had such a great experience in two emergency department placements at Barts Health that I decided I want to make my career in ED."

    "My proudest moment so far came very recently when I had a very sick patient who needed a lot of intervention in resus. We all worked hard to stabilise that patient for safe transfer to theatre. A few weeks later that same patient walked back into ED to thank us. It’s a privilege isn’t it? Every day we get the chance to make a difference to someone on one of the most critical days in their lives."

    Jessica, staff nurse, The Royal London

  • "Joining the team was one of the best decisions of my life."

    "The team is made up from a diverse range of people from all over the world. The critical care team is always very supportive, nobody is left on their own and there’s always someone around to help."

    "Critical care is full of opportunity for self-development with the chance to build a career and progress to higher bands. It’s a beautiful place to work where the team are my second family. We’ve both laughed and cried together in the most difficult time of our generation."

    Tibor, assistant practitioner, Whipps Cross Hospital


  • Maala Kumanan - Consultant Biomedical and Clinical Scientist

    My role as a consultant biomedical/clinical scientist, in one of the busiest labs at Barts Health, is a new one. It involves looking at tissue samples to see if anything is wrong – if there are any signs of disease – and I do a lot of reporting on the tests we do.

    It's a really challenging but rewarding job and I feel that I can make a significant difference to the lives of our patients

  • SYS recruitment campaign for ED nursing

    "We are a family here, all of us different but all welcome as part of the team."

    "I have made lifelong friends here and they have helped with me with advice and support on the training courses for the emergency department and trauma. The managers have also been very supportive and flexible with my rota. I’m a working mum with three children so I really need that support with childcare and arranging my shifts."

    Chloe, paediatric sister, Whipps Cross Hospital

  • Jordan, b6 nurse

    "Seeing the phenomenal end of life care the nurses gave to my family member inspired me to start a career in intensive care."

    "During the first pandemic wave, I was redeployed to The Royal London ACCU and found the team incredibly supportive and willing to teach at every experience. On my first day I was able to experience a major incident and subsequent response debrief, with full support from the matrons to have an opportunity to learn from senior staff about planning and prevention, which I found to be an incredibly valuable experience."

    Jordan, intensive care nurse, The Royal London
