Working for Us
We are looking for outstanding, passionate individuals who can help drive our vision to be the first choice for healthcare closer to home. If you would like to be a part of making a difference to our community then we look forward to hearing from you.
Based on feedback from our staff, we have been named among the Health Services Journal’s (HSJ) and Nursing Times’ top 100 ‘Great Places to Work’. We’re in the top 20 per cent of all community trusts for overall staff engagement in the 2014 NHS National Staff Survey.
Our dedicated teams supported us to achieve an overall ‘Good’ rating in our most recent Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspection in September 2014.
Our trust leadership has also passed a ‘Well Led’ review with the NHS Trust Development Authority. This means that the leadership, management and governance of the organisation ensure the delivery of sustainable, high quality, person-centred care, while supporting learning and innovation, and promoting an open and fair culture.
We are proud to have been recognised for our great work nationally. Recent successes include being finalists in the ‘best use of IT to support integrated healthcare services' category of the EHI Awards, the ‘staff engagement’ category of the Health Service Journal (HSJ) Value in Healthcare Awards and the ‘costing award’ category of the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) Awards, to name a few.
We are also proud to support individual achievement, with our team boasting 31 Queen’s Nurses among its ranks.
LCHS is a Quality and Inclusion Partner with NHS Employers.
Think of Lincolnshire and our
succulent sausages, iconic Jolly Fisherman, and legendary Red Arrows may
immediately spring to mind.
But spare a second to consider our booming businesses, selection of great schools and two universities, and low cost of living, and you’ll soon realise there is so much more to living in Lincolnshire than brilliant bangers.
If you’re looking for a vibrant, thriving place to make your home, look no further than Lincoln. The grand outline of Lincoln Cathedral can be seen for miles looming over the city, which in recent years has undergone significant development.
Choose from modern city apartments or one of Lincoln’s many character stone cottages, ome date back to the twelfth century.
Take a stroll up the cobbled Steep Hill, which was named ‘Britain’s Best Place’ in 2011, and sample its selection of bars, restaurants and boutique shops or relax on the cosmopolitan waterfront of the Brayford.
Moving away from the hustle and bustle of the city, you will find a mix of busy market towns and quaint villages.
Whether you are seeking a cottage overlooking quiet countryside, interesting and unusual conversions, including barns, churches and village schools, or somewhere in the heart of a traditional market town, property is often on the market at a fraction of the price you might pay elsewhere.
The county boasts lower than average crime rates and its above average performing primary and secondary schools make it attractive for growing families.
For visitors, there are a host of attractions within a short drive. Learn about Lincolnshire’s proud aviation history at the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre in East Kirkby, enjoy a traditional British seaside resort along our coastline or explore our rich heritage through historic settings such as Belton House, near Grantham, or Tattershall Castle.
