Life at the heart of the city

Work at our world-renowned respiratory unit here at St Thomas’ Hospital in the heart of London. We’ll give you full support to develop your skills as you experience life in this vibrant and diverse city.

At the heart of patient care

Employed by the NHS as part of the Guy’s and St Thomas’ team, you’ll be joining a world-renowned unit that provides the invasive and non-invasive management of chronic respiratory failure in a purpose built 14-bed ward. As well as delivering in-patient care for those failing to wean from invasive ventilation following critical illness, we investigate chronic respiratory failure and support a population of over 1,200 people in the use of non-invasive ventilation at home.

What makes it different

For many of our nurses, the sheer variety of patients makes their role so stimulating – people of all ages and with many different needs. Basically, no two patients are the same, so you get the chance to specialise but still work with a diverse range of conditions. Of course, being part of a world-leading unit with access to specialist expertise and state-of-the-art resources is a big attraction too. Our nurses also tell us that they love the team spirit here. People are open, welcoming and always willing to share experiences and knowledge. As one of our nurses said: ‘It’s almost like an extended family’.

More variety and a real team spirit
Rewards and benefits

As well as all the benefits you would expect from an NHS organisation, we offer a range of innovative programmes and resources to help you enjoy a healthy lifestyle and maintain a great work/life balance.
