About us

Bupa Cromwell Hospital is a leading London private hospital with an international reputation, offering treatment for both adults and children. The hospital was purpose built and opened in 1981 as a state-of-the-art private facility for complex procedures and excellence in patient care - a tradition which continues to this day. We have established a reputation for innovation and are continually investing in the world’s most advanced diagnostic and treatment technologies.

The Role

An excellent opportunity has arisen for an experienced Director of Nursing to lead and be responsible for providing clinical direction, strong professional and sensitive leadership to all Nursing and Clinical/AHP staff within the Bupa Cromwell Hospital. You will drive the delivery of excellent clinical standards of care, a culture of patient safety, clinical effectiveness and continuous improvement for the patient experience. This is an exciting time to join the Cromwell Hospital as we have made significant investment within the hospital and are soon to be opening a new Adult Intensive Care Unit and have recently opened a new Paediatric Outpatient department.

The Director of Nursing will take a lead role in shaping the agenda on workforce design, recruitment and retention within nursing. You will contribute to the strategic and corporate direction of the hospital providing advice to the Executive Team in relation to the development and provision of clinical services.

As a member of the Executive Team, you will play a key role as professional lead for our nursing and therapy services. Importantly, you will lead by example, being visible and approachable to our staff and patients. You will be attracted by the opportunity to become part of a forward-thinking Hospital that is on an exciting journey of transformation and fostering a culture of continuous improvement through innovation, creativity and strategic thinking about our service provision.

Reporting to the Hospital Director, you will work collaboratively with the Medical Director to develop a culture which embeds Clinical Quality and Governance and monitor its effectiveness across the hospital in preparation for future CQC inspections. The hospital has been awarded a ‘Good’ CQC rating in 2018, which we are now striving to achieve an ‘Outstanding’ rating.

Who we’re looking for?

An experienced nurse leader with previous Private/NHS experience and you will currently be operating at a senior level within an acute hospital. You will have a track-record of providing exemplary clinical leadership within a large, complex organisation where the highest levels of care are a given, and you will be adept at working with and through a technically skilled and highly professionalised workforce to deliver excellent performance.

You will have the ability to engage and influence all stakeholders and network effectively internally and externally at a senior level. It is essential that you have a current NMC Registration and ideally a clinical background in Medical, Surgical, Oncology or ICU.

The successful candidate for this position will create, inspire and have a passion for patient care.

Whether you’ve found your feet or are discovering a new path. Welcome to a place that celebrates you. This isn’t where you've been.  This is where you're going. This is what we have belief in.

Bupa is committed to making sure that every applicant is assessed solely on the basis of personal merit and qualifications, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, pregnancy or maternity, marital or civil partner status, gender reassignment, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, disability or age.
