Dr Zilley Khan
Associate Director of Medical Education,

We are cycling-friendly and provide free bus travel for staff from the nearby park and rides to our state-of-the-art hospital, which opened in 2019, surrounded by wild meadows, greenery, and a duck pond – the perfect setting for enjoying those half-price meals.

We were the first NHS hospital in England to receive a joint ‘Investors in People and NHS Health and Wellbeing Award’ and are a Veteran Aware employer.
