    "In all my years working I don’t think I have enjoyed the camaraderie as much as this."

    "I have been nursing for 22 years and now lead a team of nurses who I nurture and look after. I love it. I love the adrenaline push I think, and the fact that we really do make a difference when people are in a crisis."

    Arnold, senior charge nurse

  • 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

  • "The thing I like the most about working at Whipps Cross intensive care is the teams dynamic and its diversity."

    "Our management team are very supportive, especially during the pandemic which made me feel valued as a member of the team."

    Shirlyn, admin assistant for ICU, Whipps Cross Hospital

  • "I never looked back, here I found my home."

    I joined the critical care team as a band 5, thirsty for special skills and in search of a better opportunity and a new environment. During my stay, I was guided, educated, taught, trusted and respected by the team I now call my family.

    Luisa, intensive care nurse, Whipps Cross Hospital

  • "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
