Nursing and Midwifery at Team SFH
We’re proud of our warm, caring, and supportive working environment, with colleagues rating us the best Acute Trust in the Midlands for four years running. Happy, well-supported staff are central to our success, and we believe in helping everyone in our team reach their potential and become the best they can be.
“Leadership here will nurture you – they want you to do well – so, if you’ve got the enthusiasm that matches that then there are opportunities here for you to grab.”
As a midwife at SFH you will be working in a supportive and caring team that is dedicated to providing the highest quality maternity care to the women of North Nottinghamshire.
The women we care for are at the centre of everything we do and you’ll play an important role in making sure both high and low risk women receive seamless and personalised care, whether at their home, in hospital or within the community.
Internal Nurse Transfer Scheme
The Internal Transfer Scheme is for all Band 5 Staff Nurses employed by Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. It is a fast-tracked process to support nurses to move sideways into a different department or specialty.
The aim of the scheme is to retain our valued band 5 nurses by simplifying the recruitment process for those wishing to explore internal opportunities, that are available at the same grade but in a different area.
The Daisy Awards
In order to recognise the amazing work that goes on across #TeamSFH, Sherwood Forest Hospitals promotes the DAISY Awards.
The DAISY Awards have been created nationally as part of the DAISY Foundation, which was founded 19 years ago by the family of J. Patrick Barnes. Patrick died at the age of 33 from complications of ITP. His family was completely awestruck by the care and compassion that they and Patrick were shown during his 8 week illness that they wanted to say THANK YOU to nurses. In order to do this Patrick’s wife, Tena developed the DAISY acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System, which is now a national award scheme that helps to recognise the dedication of nurses.
The DAISY Awards are now celebrated in over 4,300 healthcare facilities and schools of nursing in 28 countries around the world and recognise examples of extraordinary nursing. No matter where a nurse works in the organisation they are eligible for The DAISY Award. More than 136,000 nurses have been honoured and over 1.6 million nominations have been written.
