We are utilising additional investment to boost our informatics strategy and enable us to deliver pioneering applications to support patient care and medical research. As part of our current wide-ranging digital strategy, we are developing a modern data warehouse to power advanced real-time analytics, providing insights and enhanced decision making for all our staff

The technical solutions team comprises of integration specialists and application developers that leverage data from disparate healthcare systems to create coherent enterprise solutions, for use by clinical and management teams. The success of our recent projects, such as the nationally reported eWhiteBoard and digiRounds projects and the internationally acclaimed and award winning My Medical Record programme, has led to an increased demand for custom solutions and as such, we are growing the team.


We’re looking for experienced full-stack application developers who can enhance our existing systems, and develop new solutions to meet the needs of the Trust and our partner organisations. Significant experience of ASP.Net, C#, CSS, and HTML5, is essential, as well as practical experience of enterprise databases. Awareness of HL7, FHIR, JSON/XML would be advantageous.

Applicants must be self-motivated, with an ability to adapt their skills to our development environment. We operate complex data storage architectures with multiple APIs and therefore significant knowledge transfer will be required, so the right candidate will also be a quick learner.

If you do not meet all the grade requirements but can demonstrate many of them, we will consider appointment at a training grade with a view to you gaining specific competencies, undertaking training or building experience which would then make you eligible for the advertised positions.


We can offer flexible working arrangements and an opportunity to further your career and develop professionally within a friendly and supportive team. If you have the skills, experience, ability, and drive to achieve the required competencies within an environment that can offer support, training and development, we’d love to hear from you.
