In a city the size of London, it is essential to have an effective health care service. It must also be able to meet the wide range of needs of a highly diverse population, living in boroughs as disparate as Westminster and Hackney.
Many people tend to think of the NHS as a medical employer only, but of course such a vast organisation needs to employ a huge number of people in support functions too. Unlike the medical departments, these units are not all visible to the public, but they are no less important, in fact they form the foundation without which the medical teams could not function.
For people interested in a career within the NHS, the wide range of non-medical areas recruited for include engineering, administration, procurement, accounting and IT. The positions in these departments all play a part in the effective running of the NHS.
London is home to many key NHS hospitals, such as Guy’s & St Thomas’, Great Ormond Street and the Royal London. The health service is currently facing major challenges, such as an ageing population, increasing levels of obesity and its associated health problems, and more and more people going for treatment at Accident & Emergency departments. With health care under more pressure than ever before, there has never been a better time to join for those who love a challenge, and want the chance to contribute to the future of the NHS.
