About our Trust

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust provides services from Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and West Middlesex University Hospital—and a number of community-based services across London, such as award-winning sexual health and HIV clinics.

The Trust has over 6,000 staff proudly serving a million people locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. We treat a patient every 40 seconds, performing 34,000 operations and carrying out 391,000 scans, x-rays and procedures each year. As the second largest maternity provider in the country we help deliver a baby almost every hour of the day. We are one of the best performing trusts in London for A&E waiting times, and our mortality rates are some of the best in the country.

Our Trust has been rated by the Care Quality Commission as ‘Good’ in all five of the main domains of safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led, giving an us overall rating of ‘Good’. We are one of the first trusts to receive ‘Good’ across the board under the new CQC inspection framework. Both hospitals within our Trust—Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and West Middlesex University Hospital—were rated as ‘Good’ overall.

Our Trust was awarded an ‘Outstanding’ rating for ‘use of resources’ by an NHS Improvement inspection which was completed during the same period as the CQC assessment.

West Middlesex University Hospital Site (based at Twickenham Road, Isleworth, Middlesex, TW7 6AF) & Chelsea and Westminster site (based at 369 Fulham Road, London, SW10 9NH).

We currently have vacancies at Chelsea and Westminster Foundation Trust at our Chelsea and West Middlesex sites for proactive and innovative nurses to join our friendly and dedicated teams. We have a range of exciting Band 5 opportunities across site to gain and develop experience within a range of specialties including:

Marble Hill 1 & 2 – Elderly Care

Come and join Moby and his team on our newly refurbished Elderly Care wards. During any season elderly people can be taken ill and it is often a frightening experience for them to be out of their home and a familiar environment. Both Marble Hill 1 and 2 are bright and airy and decorated in dementia friendly colours so patients can easily recognise which area of the wards they are staying in. Elderly care is a challenging but incredibly rewarding area in which to work and we are looking for friendly, compassionate nurses to join the team.

Crane – Dementia

‘At some point in our lives we will inevitably need help and support from others. As we grow older we would want the best possible care for ourselves and our loved ones.’ Julia Dufour – Matron. Come and join Julia and her team on our newly refurbished dementia friendly ward. Recent investment has seen new flooring, bright, dementia friendly colouring for instant recognition for our patients.

Kew – Stroke

At present Kew ward repatriates patients from Hyper Acute Stroke Units or from other wards within the hospital. Stroke patients come to Kew for further assessments by the wards therapists and receive inpatient rehabilitation before either being discharge to further specialist rehabilitation units or for rehab in the community, often in their own homes.

As a unit we have a full multidisciplinary team consisting of Nursing staff, Stroke Specialist Nurse, Occupational Therapist, Physiotherapists, Speech and Language Therapist, Doctors, Dietician and a Psychologist. Working within such a specialist ward staff are able to enhance their skills and knowledge in stroke and understand all of the complexities around a stroke and how assessments are made.

•Launched in September 2016, our new preceptorship and mentor programmes will support you to develop the skills you need to achieve your career goals.

•Join an award winning and highly recognised Trust with high expectations to achieve excellence for Every Patient, Every Time.

•In-house development courses to meet your needs, with scheduled time away from the ward to attend the courses of your choice.

•We’re committed to using new and innovative technology to support patient care.
