‘I moved to York from London, I really enjoy the calm, friendly city away from the hustle and bustle of London life. York Teaching Hospital although smaller in comparison to some other hospitals has a great community feel where staff are friendly and know one another’ 

Tracy Means, Deputy Head of Nursing

‘I moved to York Hospital to gain promotion, I have found everyone to be so welcoming and supportive. It can be very busy both in the hospital and the community environment, but everyone wants to provide exceptional care and so go above and beyond in order to do this, and always with a smile on their face.’
