Executive Recruitment

Our People

We employ more than 5,000 people across our three hospital sites - King’s Mill, Newark and Mansfield Community.

Our dedicated team of more than 650 volunteers give up their time to make a difference and enhance the experience of our patients and visitors. 

As an NHS Foundation Trust we are accountable to the Council of Governors which represents the views of members.

We are proud to boast a membership of more than 15,000 – allowing our local communities opportunities to influence decisions and to demonstrate their loyalty and support for our hospitals.

We are proud of our improvements over the past five years at Sherwood Forest Hospitals and we recognise we can improve further. We know good quality healthcare can only be delivered by focussing on the experience of people, be it patients and the public or the colleagues you work with. Our improvements have been achieved by two central commitments to people:

  • We expect all patients to receive the same standard of care we would want our friends and family to have
  • We expect all colleagues to be treated with the same values we believe are important; support, kindness and respect.
