Nurse recruitment in Gateshead

Now is the time to join our nursing team

Do you have the skills, care and compassion to join our fantastic Gateshead nursing team?

We are one of the highest performing hospitals in the country and we're now looking for experienced and newly qualified nurses who are motivated and passionate about delivering the highest standards of patient care.

We've just been rated as good with outstanding care by the national healthcare regulator the CQC, so it's a fantastic time to join an excellent organisation.

The nursing teams are at the very heart of the work we do at Gateshead and we're proud and passionate about providing excellent care. We've recently invested in our buildings, our infrastructure and our nursing teams, making Gateshead one of the most exciting and innovative places to work in the North East.

This is an incredibly exciting time to join the Queen Elizabeth, so if you have the skills, drive and motivation we'd love to hear from you.
