We are close to Gatwick airport and the M25 and M23. We are a Trauma centre and we see a variety of trauma patients.
We have a designated full time Practice Development Nurse for the Emergency Department, who provides training and access to course within and outside the trust.
We are a friendly team and have a great working collaboration, and a great and supportive matron.
