Sherwood Forest Hospitals
Sherwood Forest Hospitals is a modern and pleasant place to work. We are a Foundation Hospital Trust providing high quality, acute health care services in and around Mansfield, Ashfield, Newark, Sherwood and parts of Derbyshire / Lincolnshire, with more than 550 inpatient beds. It offers a wide range of specialties including medicine, surgery, critical care and rehabilitation. We are a caring trust who passionately adhere to the NHS constitution with our Quality for all standards:
- Communicating and working together
- Aspiring and improving
- Respectful and caring
- Efficient and safe
The training is based at King’s Mill Hospital which is 16 miles north of Nottingham, easily accessible by either the M1 (Junction 28) or the A60.
Other Trust sites are local, with Newark being furthest away from King’s Mill (22 miles).
The Pharmacy Department
The Pharmacy Department employs around 120 staff and provides services to the Trust from Kings Mill Hospital (KMH) and Newark Hospital. It also covers the rehabilitation beds at the local community hospitals. In addition, the department is contracted to deliver specialised pharmacy services to the John Eastwood hospice.
The department has a weekly educational meeting allowing the pre-registration trainee to integrate with the team, as well as providing areas for their own CPD and development.
Each day there is a communication cell for staff handover. This allows on-call queries to be handed to the appropriate member of staff and problematic patients to be discussed if required. It also allows any stock issues or sickness to be handled appropriately.
