Job Advert - Division Information

WE ARE LOOKING FOR TALENTED PEOPLE LIKE YOU!!

Knowing that you’re making a difference to people’s lives is rewarding in itself. But our many roles offer much more than that. As well as helping you grow and develop your talent, we want you to feel proud of where you work and what you do.

Job Advert Location Description

Priory Hospital Enfield is a small hospital comprising of four wards; two medium secure (male only patients), one low secure (male only patients) and one acute ward (mixed sex-six male and six female patients). Priory Hospital Enfield is situated close to Central London with excellent transport links with easy access to the M25 and surrounding Home Counties.

The hospital has recently been inspected by the Quality Network team and this provided some very positive feedback around patient care, staff attitudes and the positive relationships that have been built between staff and patients. The hospital has also recently been inspected by the European Council for the prevention of torture which again was very complimentary about the attitude of staff, patients provided excellent feedback about the staff and the service provided and the “thorough and detailed” care plans and treatment pathways on offer at site.

Everyone working at Priory Hospital Enfield is determined to deliver the very best care for our patients. Collaborative working is key to the positive relationships we have between our staff and patients. The team is small but very supportive of each other and the positive link up between different disciplines is the reason for the positive feedback we are receiving.
