Aiming to Be the Employer of Choice; Ealing Hospital NHS Trust Is at the Forefront of Change in the Delivery of Services and Is Recruiting Nurses to Strengthen Its Approach and Drive Forward


Byline: Niki Chesworth

CHANGE means opportunity, and with health and social care in north-west London currently undergoing significant service transformation, Ealing Hospital NHS Trust has plenty of opportunities for nurses.

"We are driving forward greater levels of integration through pioneering projects and devising our workforce strategies to meet new requirements," says David McVittie, chief executive. "This creates unique opportunities for the nursing profession and that is why we are investing in our nursing workforce in a way that inspires a generation of nurses to deliver skilful and compassionate care."

Ealing "aims to be the employer of choice in London", according to Deborah Kelly, deputy director of nursing. "We have a clear strategy about how we intend to achieve this, placing professionals at the vanguard of innovative and dynamic practice."

We are also looking for newly qualified or experienced nurses who wish to work with children and families."

SCHOOL NURSES Ealing is also recruiting for a significant number of school nurses, with the service delivered by a team of mixed-skilled practitioners. Ealing has trust-wide forums for school nursing to share best practice, is developing a masterclass programme for qualified school nurses and offers clinical and child protection supervision.
