We are always keen to welcome highly skilled, committed and compassionate individuals to our hospitals – people who put patients at the heart of everything they do and are ready to help us achieve our vision: excellence in rural healthcare.

Our values guide everything we do. They are:

  • Patient-centred care
  • Safety
  • Excellence
  • Compassion
  • Respect

If you believe in them too, then you are ready to join the ULHT team.

We are proud of the systems we are developing to provide care for a population of more than 700,000 people.

We have a leading heart centre at Lincoln, a pioneering end-of-life “hospice in a hospital” at Grantham, we have recently invested £2m in neonatal facilities and created a clinical research facility at Boston.

We have strong ties with the University of Lincoln, which offers training and research opportunities in nursing, midwifery, allied health and social care disciplines

We have close ties with the University of Lincoln, which offers under-graduate and post-graduate courses and research opportunities in nursing, midwifery and allied health and social care disciplines in a new £19m facility, the Sarah Swift Building, named in honour of the Lincolnshire-born nurse who went on to set up the Royal College of Nursing.

And, in a particularly exciting development, the university is launching a new medical school for Lincolnshire.

We are fully committed to caring for all patients, their families and carers, and staff in a manner which embraces, respects, promotes and celebrates equality, cultural diversity and inclusion. We want to inspire you to take every opportunity to grow, discover and share best practice so you can deliver safe and effective, high quality patient-centred care.

We are ambitious for both the future of ULHT and for you. Our 2021 strategy defines those ambitions and links closely with the work we are doing as part of the sustainability and transformation partnership (STP) to create a positive future for health and care in Lincolnshire.

Professional development and innovation is our passion and we recognise that developing effective and financially sustainable services is down to the commitment, skills and compassion of all our staff.

In return we offer a rewarding and supportive place to work and we have an unrivalled package of staff benefits.

These include:

  • The NHS pension scheme, generous holiday entitlements, flexible working possibilities and relocation packages for certain roles
  • Training and education through the Lincolnshire Talent Academy, tailored, high-quality in-house training, preceptorship support for new and returning-to-work nurses
  • Money-saving deals on cars, bikes and high street shopping and entertainment
  • On-site nurseries at Lincoln and Boston, childcare vouchers and support for staff wishing to take maternity, paternity, adoption and parental leave
  • Health, wellbeing and occupational support that includes personal and work-related counselling, mental health first aid, mindfulness and counselling training, health check MoTs and self-referral physiotherapy
