A welcoming and friendly Teaching Hospital in one of the most beautiful areas of the UK…
We are a well-established hospital with a proud tradition of training and supporting staff to provide excellent clinical care.
Located on the North East Yorkshire Coast of England, Scarborough is a busy hospital, big enough to provide you with a variety of career opportunities but also small enough to feel friendly and supportive. Our hospital has an Accident and Emergency department and provides acute medical and surgical services, including trauma and intensive care services.
We are a proud partner of the Hull York Medical School and provide clinical placements and training for future doctors. We also work with neighbouring universities, including the new Coventry University (CU) campus in town, which supports the training and development of a whole host of health professionals. As one of eight hospitals managed by York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, there are other opportunities for development across the Trust’s specialist centres.
Whether you’re a doctor, nurse, radiographer or other trained health professional looking to make a fresh start somewhere new, we guarantee you a warm welcome as a much valued member of our multi-disciplinary team.
Every year, we support health professionals to relocate to the area and start work with us. Few if any ever look back.
“I was offered a Staff Nurse position and was welcomed to the hospital. I moved from Singapore. When I landed in Heathrow there were Matrons waiting for me and a bus ready for me to jump aboard. There was also a welcome party a few days later where I met with other nurses and could talk about anything. There was also accommodation provided for me whilst I found somewhere to live.
Since starting the most noticeable thing for me has been just how much my English has improved. Career-wise, I have been promoted to Deputy Sister which has been a rewarding achievement for my career.
Scarborough is a lovely town. The hospital is a small one, but this is good because I have formed good relationships with staff and patients as it has a family feel to it. It has a calming atmosphere and I am able to have great work life balance.”
- Ginta Kurian, ICU
"I came, not knowing anyone and having no place to stay – but from the front doors, the willingness and warmth of the staff was apparent. Everyone seemed ready to help and was polite.
The clinical work is intense but the Consultants and Registrars are very kind and warm and willing to teach. Everyone is genuinely interested in helping you learn and develop in your career and there is room to participate in audits and quality improvement projects.
Another positive experience is the daily teachings in Scarborough; these teaching helped to build my knowledge base and I was not just working but able to learn including having all the opportunities for procedures and training that all other doctors in core training are exposed to.”
- Dr Olujinmi Adetutu, Cardiology Doctor
