About West Suffolk Hospital & Community Services
West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust (WSFT) provides hospital and community health care services to the population of west Suffolk and is an associate teaching hospital of the University of Cambridge. We serve a predominantly rural geographical area of roughly 600 square miles with a population of around 280,000.
In addition to the main hospital, we employ staff in a number of community-based locations across Suffolk. Working collaboratively with community services enables us to assist with reducing pressure across the NHS system and provide the right care, in the right place, at the right time.
We work hard to make West Suffolk Hospital and our community services a great place to work. A high performing Trust, our most recent CQC results gave us an overall rating of ‘Outstanding’ – the highest possible rating. We are very proud to be one of a very few acute trusts in the country, and currently the only one in the east of England, to hold this accolade
We regularly receive positive feedback in NHS staff surveys in a range of key areas, consistently scoring in the top 20% of Trusts nationally against seven criteria:
recommending the hospital as a place to work or receive treatment
satisfaction with the quality of work and patient care they are able to deliver
agreeing their role makes a difference to patients
feeling recognised and valued by managers and the organisation
satisfaction with the level of responsibility and involvement they are given
satisfaction with resourcing and support feeling the organisation takes an interest in and action on health and wellbeing.
When applying for jobs, please ensure you read the advert carefully to identify whether the job you wish to apply for is based at the main hospital or at one of our community locations.
Come and join us and be part of, what we think, is the best hospital in the east of England.
