Say hello to St Joe's
James Austin
Theatre Manager

Qualified theatre practitioners

Perform at you best in our well-equipped theatres. St Joseph’s has two operating theatres, an endoscopy suite and is opening a brand new theatre for day case procedures in April 2021. Our two principal theatres are state-of-the-art Laminar Flow theatres capable of supporting complex surgery.  A modern purpose-designed third theatre is an endoscopy suite which enables St Joseph’s to be a leading provider of endoscopy services working towards JAG accreditation.

We invest heavily in our facilities to ensure you have the latest equipment - and we're just as committed to investing in our people. We’re looking for:

  • Qualified Nurses trained in working in an operating theatre and recovery
  • Operating Department Practitioners who have undergone a 2-year training to work in theatres.

We believe every patient is a unique individual with social, physical and psychological needs which have to be met. We’re very proud of the care that we provide to all our patients and are always appreciative of the thank you cards and letters of praise.

A high proportion of operations carried out at St Joseph’s hospital are day cases. This benefits the patients as they can return to their normal home environment as soon as they have recovered from the anaesthetic. The short hospital stay also minimises disruption to their daily routine and to the lives of family and friends.

We’re continually investing in your training and development. To be the best nurse you can be, it’s important that you have the most up-to-date knowledge. You’ll be given the chance to complete funded courses and qualifications to advance your career.
