Nursing at Scarborough Hospital

Small location, big opportunities to grow...

Why you should join our nursing team at Scarborough

Scarborough is one of our smaller hospitals but with a real feeling of community, where all our staff clearly want to do the best for patients. Even though Scarborough is one of our smaller hospitals, it doesn't mean that you won't have amazing opportunities in your nursing career. With fantastic preceptorships for newly qualified nurses, flexible supervisory practice periods and opportunities to choose the area you want to work in, our nursing staff are valued and supported at all stages of their career.

We offer a wide range of fantastic benefits which include a choice of either a bike, a year’s gym membership, a local annual bus travel pass - all of which are funded by the Trust. We also offer support to those who are relocating to Scarborough. Please contact us to find out more about the amazing benefits we offer you as a nurse joining our friendly team at Scarborough. 

We understand everyone has individual needs, and that work life balance creates a healthier and more positive team. Therefore, we want to assure you that we are willing to consider your working requests and would be happy to discuss these with you at your interview.


Harriet Lynch, Matron

"There is such a community feeling about this hospital, and it is so friendly.  I always feel that people work really hard here but they are cheerful about it, they clearly want to do the best for patients whatever their role".

Emma Brady, Senior Sister

"I love the pace of life in Scarborough; much more gentle than the fast pace of city life. New staff that come to our hospital talk about how friendly it is, how everybody says hello to everybody in the corridors and how helpful everybody is".


We live and work in one of the most beautiful places in the country. There's something for everyone, extremely competitive house prices and rentals and some outstanding schools, colleges and Coventry University campus. The recently completed multi-million pound sports village development provides a wide range of activities and clubs for health and fitness, as does our new rugby club. If it's the great outdoors you want, take your pick from coast, forest or moorland, all are on our doorstep.  If it's culture, we have the Stephen Joseph Theatre where many world premieres are held, and Europe's largest open air concert theatre which attracts international stars. Follow this up with food and drink from one of our local independent venues. Why not award winning fish and chips on the seafront?
