  • "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

    “Working in the maternity team at Newham Hospital is great for lots of reasons. As a midwife, I have the opportunity to learn a lot while providing care to one of the most diverse communities in England. And as a person, I’m fully supported by my colleagues to be my true, authentic self. I’m very proud to work here.”

  • "I consider myself lucky and privileged to work with such a friendly unit which I call my second home."

    "Coming to the UK has been life changing for me. I have to admit it has not been an easy journey to adapt with the culture and environment, but looking back I would never change a thing. It has defined who am I now, and what I am really passionate about is caring for the patients and helping my other junior colleague grow to become the best critical care nurses."

    Angelica, intensive care nurse, Newham Hospital

  • "I love it because we are such a diverse group of people working in such a diverse community."

    "My interest started at 19 when I was a healthcare assistant. I went on to do nursing when I was 26 and did all my placements in A&E. Some of those placements were here at Newham and I just loved the fast pace and the way the team gelled, so I decided this was where I wanted to make my career. I have been here for 15 years now and I still love it."

    Shabana, staff nurse, Newham Hospital A&E
