Guy’s and St Thomas’ is among the UK’s busiest and most successful NHS foundation trusts. We provide a full range of hospital and community services for people in Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham, as well as specialist care for patients from further afield including cancer, renal, orthopaedic and cardiovascular services.

Guy’s is home to the largest dental school in Europe and a £160 million Cancer Centre opened in 2016. As part of our commitment to provide care closer to home, in 2017 we also opened a cancer centre and a kidney treatment centre at Queen Mary’s Hospital in Sidcup. St Thomas’ has one of the largest critical care units in the UK and one of the busiest emergency departments in London. It is also home to Evelina London Children’s Hospital.

The commitment of our 17,100 staff is key to our success. We are one of the largest local employers and we aim to develop and support all our staff so they are able to deliver high quality, safe and efficient care. The 2018 NHS staff survey results show that we have one of the most engaged and motivated workforces in the NHS. We know this has a positive impact on the care provided to our patients.



An exciting opportunity has arisen on the GI unit at St Thomas hospital for a band 3 senior nursing assistant role.

We are a friendly, diverse and dynamic team in which to be part of.

We promote best practice and clinical excellence and you can become part of this.

The GI unit is a 52 bedded tertiary referral unit, consisting of both Page and Northumberland wards caring for complex and challenging surgical patients from a wide geographical area with a range of Gastro intestinal conditions.

We are looking to employ a hardworking, self-motivated individual preferably with extended skills and knowledge such as venepuncture and cannulation, basic wound care and ability to complete the admission assessments.

This role will allow you to develop and gain a wide range of additional clinical skills which will enhance your own personal development whist contributing to the high standard of care expected on the GI unit.  You will be expected to work with the wider multi-disciplinary team and support junior colleagues such as nursing assistants and student nurses.

Please feel free to contact either ward managers for an informal visit or if you would like to discuss this opportunity further.

We look forward to hearing from you.
