The Trust has over 6,000 staff proudly serving a million people locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. We treat a patient every 40 seconds, performing 34,000 operations and carrying out 391,000 scans, x-rays and procedures each year. As the second largest maternity provider in the country we help deliver a baby almost every hour of the day. We have one of the lowest mortality rates in the country and 90% of our patients would recommend us to family and friends.

About the role


Fertility Nurse, Band 5

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a registered nurse to join our expanding team at the Assisted Conception Unit at Chelsea and Westminster Foundation Trust. The candidate will have an interest in women’s health and fertility. The Assisted Conception Unit is on an exciting journey of change and we are looking for an enthusiastic patient focused nurse to join the nursing team in the developments and opportunities which lie ahead while delivering bespoke care to a wide patient base.

This is an excellent opportunity for a talented individual with broad nursing experience and proven track record of providing excellent individualised patient care, to join the team in one of the UKs most successful and progressive NHS Foundation Trusts. Some experience in Gynaecology, Women’s Health and/or the Private Patient Sector would be advantageous but is not essential.

The successful candidate will be working within a small friendly experienced team and will have opportunity to expand their practice within this progressive and exciting specialty of fertility. You will have excellent communication and interpersonal skills as you will be joining a dynamic, forward thinking multi-professional team who are committed to delivering exceptional patient centred care as well as being the top performing NHS fertility unit in London clinically.

The Assisted Conception Unit at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital is a purpose built facility within a high performing acute teaching hospital which treats more than 1000 couples a year for infertility.
