Role Details

The JPUH is a vibrant university hospital providing the best possible care to a population of 250,000 residents across Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft and Waveney, as well as to the many visitors who come to this part of East Anglia. Our main site in Gorleston is supported by the Newberry Clinic and other outreach clinics in the local area.

 

Ensuring our patients are central to everything we do is our priority. Our vision is to be an innovative organisation delivering compassionate and safe patient care through a well led and motivated workforce.

Named after the famed surgeon, The James Paget Hospital officially opened on 21 July 1982. We were established as a third wave NHS Trust in 1 April 1993 and became a Foundation Trust on 1 August 2006. This meant we were more able to develop services to meet the needs of our local community with local people and staff directly involved in decisions about their hospitals, and influence the future - our Trust members.

We provide a full range of general acute services plus a number of specialised services; including a hyperbaric chamber for ventilating and monitoring critically ill patients whilst they are receiving hyperbaric oxygen therapy. We work with a number of local primary care colleagues, community services and other acute trusts, to ensure that patients receive the best care in the right place - and are fully involved in our local health and care partnership in Norfolk and Waveney - the Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP).

The Trust has c500 inpatient beds located on the James Paget University Hospital. These are a mix of critical, intensive and high dependency care, general surgery and medicine, maternity, paediatrics and neonatal, and escalation beds used when we are experiencing high demand and need to deal with an increased number of patients needing our care.

We employ over 3,000 staff, both part and full time, making us the largest local employer in the area. Our staff act as ambassadors for the Trust and are guided by our Vision, Values and Behaviours.
