Welcome to Guys' & St Thomas' from Dame Eileen Sills
Develop advanced skills – and focus on families

We strongly believe in investing in our nursing professionals. After all, we want them to stay with us for the long term. So we’ll support you to develop your advanced skills at every stage of your career with us. The chance to work with leading-edge critical care technology is an important part of that, as is the opportunity to take your assessment skills to the next level. But it’s even more important to talk about our approach to the people we care for. There’s a real focus on the family here and we’ll expect you to be there for families at possibly the most difficult time of their lives. So of course, you’ll need to be a really good communicator with a reassuring, calm and helpful approach.

Be part of an amazing environment

You really do need to visit Evelina London to experience what a unique and inspiring place it is. Within this seven-storey glass-fronted building themed around the natural world, you can travel from the sea at ground level to the sky at the top. Along the way you’ll find rooms filled with sunlight, fresh air, energy and optimism. Here’s a hospital that was clearly designed around the needs of children and their families. Don’t miss those little human touches either: the thank you cards for example, with words like ‘Amazing team’, ‘Passion for caring’ and ‘You are wonderful special people’.

A rich heritage

Located on the St Thomas’ hospital site, our award winning building opened in 2005 and brought together Guy's and St Thomas' children’s services. Evelina London was the first new children’s hospital to be built in London for over 100 years, and it is now the second largest provider of children’s services in London. Named for Evelina de Rothschild, who died in childbirth along with her son, we have a long heritage in children’s healthcare. The original Evelina Hospital for Sick Children opened in 1869.

In the past twelve years, we’ve more than doubled in size, treating more children and young people every year. Our ground breaking treatments have transformed countless lives.
