Staff Nurse Vacancies in One of the Biggest and Busiest U.K. Trusts

Ask any overseas healthcare recruitment agency, and it will most likely tell you that the United Kingdom is currently the hottest work destination among Filipino nurses! Not only has the country made its application process much faster, but it has also relayed over 50,000 nurse job orders to the Philippines through the POEA. With it being exempted from the Philippines’ 6,500 HCW deployment cap, it’s almost suprising for a Filipino nurse to not consider applying to this European country.

Most of the U.K.’s hospitals and healthcare facilities are operating under the National Health Service, or the government-funded healthcare systems of the country. Given this, nurses can expect some semblance of uniformity with the standards and practices of different NHS Trusts. This is not to say that all NHS Trusts are equal of course: Even Recruiters like us notice that different NHS Trusts attract different quantities of applicants. One NHS Trust that we’re sure many nurses will prefer is the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust.

UHL is one of the biggest and busiest NHS Trusts in the United Kingdom. It’s composed of more than 15,000 highly skilled staff that serves over 1 million patients every year. As a teaching hospital, it works in close partnership with renowned universities and academic institutions, such as the University of Leicester and De Montfort University. Through these, it is able to provide world-class teaching that nurtures and develops the next generation of nurses and healthcare workers, many of whom end up spending their working lives with the Trust. The Trust provides the largest emergency service in the country and has excellent treatment records in cardiac care, kidney disease, cancer and vascular surgery; Its research programs in cardiovascular science , stroke medicine and diabetes are internationally recognized. As it is located in suburban Leicester, nurses can enjoy its low cost of living while still being able to enjoy the exciting city of London which is just an hour away.
