Working as a general nurse within a secure hospital is a challenging but rewarding role. No day is the same and the workload is interesting and varied. It’s amazing to see the patient journey from admission to discharge and to be able to see the progress people make with treatment and therapy

Laura, Primary Care Nurse at Fromeside


Why did you choose to become a nurse?

  • Was it because you wanted to make a difference to people’s lives?
  • Was it because you like to learn new things?
  • Was it because you enjoy a challenge?

Imagine a nursing role where you could…

  • Make a huge difference to the lives of some of the most vulnerable, marginalised and ‘forgotten’ people in our society
  • Learn, grow and develop your nursing career within a supportive and encouraging organisation that offers endless opportunities
  • Relish in the variety and uniqueness of a setting that gives you something new and different every day

Come and see if it’s for you!

If you are a Registered General Nurse and you are looking to work for an employer that will invest in you, in a setting that will challenge and excite you, and with patients that will value and appreciate you; come along to our Fromeside Open Day and see if a role here could be the right move for you!

We are inviting RGNs to visit Fromeside Secure Hospital to get first hand insight into how a secure psychiatric hospital works and the crucial role that the primary care team plays in helping these patients along their road to both physical and mental recovery.

If you want to find out if this could be the place to work for you, book to come along to the open day where you will be able to:

  • Have a tour of the medium secure unit
  • Meet the primary care team already supporting our Fromeside patients
  • Meet the mental health team caring for the patients
  • Meet members from the wider HSH team to find out more about who we are and what we do
  • Hear from some of our patients about their experiences
  • Apply for a role to work with us if you think it could be for you
