We’re looking for an ITU Staff Nurse to join our state-of-the-art ITU Unit at The Wellington Hospital, the UK’s largest private hospital and currently rated “Good” by the CQC. Not only is The Wellington Hospital the largest private hospital in the UK, but we’re also home to the UK’s largest private critical care unit – fully equipped with the latest technology to provide specialist care to level 2 and 3 patients. We’re big believers in growth, so when you join us we’ll support you to be at your best with a robust career pathway and opportunities for development such as stand-alone specialist modules, apprenticeships or event support to complete your critical care module.
As a Staff Nurse on our ITU unit you’ll be part of an MDT team all working together to deliver high standards of specialist care to your patients.

It’s a great opportunity to develop your skills and work across an extremely diverse and acute patient caseload covering a range of specialities, including GI, Neuro & Spinal – giving you the flexibility to specialise in a specific area or keep your work varied and your skills challenged. What’s more, with our nurse-to-patient ratio frequently at 1:1 or 1:2 you’ll have more time to do what you do best: deliver exceptional care.
At HCA UK we care about what you care about. We care that you want to deliver the very best care. We care that you want a career you can be proud of. We care that you want working conditions that support your health and wellbeing. Let us care for you and your career, the same way you do for others.
