Award-winning care, UK firsts, and groundbreaking clinical trials are all in a day’s work for a UHS nurse. At University Hospital Southampton our patients are at the forefront of everything we do, and we believe that our nursing workforce is vital to ensuring that this is the case.

Your development is central to our vision of delivering high quality, safe and effective care, so we offer a fantastic induction and exceptional in-house and external training and development, giving you the best possible opportunities to achieve your career goals.
