Nursing and midwifery

Every one of our 8,000 staff plays a vital role in providing quality care to thousands of people living across Wakefield and North Kirklees each year.

Our mission is to recruit, develop and retain skilled and motivated people who embody the Trust’s core values of caring, respect, high standards and improving. We do this by creating a supportive working environment -in first class facilities- where excellence and innovation is valued and celebrated; by providing excellent training and development opportunities, and by offering a comprehensive package of staff benefits to reward our employees for their hard work and commitment. 

But don't just take our word for it - see what some of our nursing and midwifery staff have to say about their careers with the Trust in the short videos below.
