What our team say
“I had not worked in this industry before and it was something that I was interested in doing, so it was a great opportunity to start working here.”
“The standard of service is high while the Hospital serves a good cause; I’m lucky to have so much job satisfaction working at Nightingale Hospital.”
“I would refer a friend to work here as it is a great place to work with a very good atmosphere; in fact I already have referred a friend to work here who now does.”
“I’ve worked at Nightingale Hospital for four years and it is a great place to work. I have friendly and professional colleagues who all care about the work we do, in addition to a supportive manager. I would highly recommend working here.”
“You really get a sense of one team working together at the Hospital – everyone supports each other regardless of their department.”
“The recruitment and induction process into Nightingale Hospital has been seamless and organised, while my new colleagues have been very welcoming, supportive and friendly. From my experience of working here so far, I would absolutely recommend working at the Hospital.”
“I get to learn a lot about mental health. I am usually the first point of contact for a patient so it can be quite rewarding to help them arrange an appointment and put them at ease, as often the patient has never seen a psychiatrist before or had mental health issues so making this process for them easier can be quite gratifying.”
“I get to meet and work with a lot of interesting and talented people at the Hospital.”
“The staff are amazing and really supportive. They take their time to explain any questions you ask. They also point you in the right direction to further develop your knowledge and understanding. I really felt part of the team.”
“Receiving the patient satisfaction feedback with messages of great thanks to the nursing and therapists is a fantastic part of this job.”
We believe our talented people are central to our success and have been accredited by Investors In People in recognition of this.
