St Helier Hospital, Wrythe Ln, Sutton, Carshalton SM5 1AA, UK



Welcome to the Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust. We offer an extensive range of services, including cancer, pathology, surgery, and gynaecology to over 490,000 people in south west London and north east Surrey. We operate two busy general hospitals, Epsom Hospital and St Helier Hospital. We are also part of two innovative integrated care partnerships – Sutton Health and Care and Surrey Downs Health and Care.

St Helier Hospital is home to the South West Thames Renal and Transplantation Unit and Queen Mary’s Hospital for Children, while Epsom Hospital is home to the South West London Elective Orthopaedic Centre (SWLEOC). Both Epsom and St Helier hospitals have Accident and Emergency departments (A&E) and Maternity services (Obstetrics).

With nearly 900,000 people coming to our hospitals for care and treatment every year, our almost 5,000 staff and 500 volunteers work around the clock to keep our busy hospitals running smoothly.

As teaching hospitals, we play a key role in the education and training of tomorrow’s doctors, nurses and other health professionals.

We will provide you with an OSCE preparation programme to give you an opportunity to practice the clinical skills you will be required to demonstrate, along with the knowledge

International nurses who have successfully joined the NMC register will then start our Preceptorship programme. We are proud to have been granted the CapitalNurse Preceptorship Quality Mark Award for our 12 month programme. This programme will help you gain confidence as well as strengthen your clinical skills through study days, clinical skills training and simulation training, arming you with all the specific knowledge you need to further your career.

We will support you with career development and progression within our organisation. Many of our International nurses now hold senior posts such as Ward Managers, Matrons or Clinical Nurse Specialists.

I was recruited by Epsom & St. Helier University Hospital NHS Trust and started working on Coronary Care Unit since February 2018. When I passed my exams I started here full time as a band 5. The staff here have supported and encouraged me to expand my knowledge since I started. I really enjoy working within the team here and there is a lovely atmosphere among the staff. The trust now has recruited my husband who has come here too. he has passed his exams and has started working as a Registered Nurse this week on EAMU. The trust have supported us 100% in helping us with study leave to pass our exams and give us full time employment.
