Working for us
Working for us
Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has been awarded the Employers Armed Forces Covenant Award in recognition of its efforts in supporting the armed forces community, ex-armed forces, reservists and their families into work in the NHS and fostering a welcoming environment.
Who we employ
We employ approximately 1,800 staff, including doctors, nurses, allied health professionals, and healthcare scientists. The Trust is also supported by managers, administrators, operational and security staff, logisticians, IT, engineers and maintenance staff - there are over 350 different roles within the NHS.
We already have highly valued members of the armed forces working within the Trust and we recognise the benefits of the skills, training and experience that ex-armed forces and reservists bring to their work.
Reservists have additional support from our Leave for Personal and Family Reasons Policy which details LHCH's commitment to support reservists, including their entitlement to 10 days paid leave (pro-rata) to attend annual training.
The Trust armed forces lead and Armed Forces Oversight Group brings together ex-armed forces staff and strives to continuously improve the work we do as a Trust in supporting members of the armed forces community with physical or mental health problems.
LHCH has also joined the Veteran Aware Hospitals Alliance which showcases high quality armed forces community healthcare and supports hospitals to learn from each other by sharing best practice.
