Our Goole District Hospital is a small, purpose built, community hospital serving the people of East Riding. We provide specialist rehabilitation services, including brain injuries, have an Urgent Treatment Centre on site and are a centre of excellence for ophthalmology.
The core surgery offered at our site is orthopaedics, general surgery, urology, gynaecology, and some cosmetic procedures. Our Surgical wards also take acute orthopaedic trauma from the larger hospital sites of Scunthorpe and Grimsby, where the aim on transfer is to rehabilitate the patient and safely discharge them back to the community.
Our Ward 6 has been tasked with providing the additional service of a HOBS bay. This will accommodate patients that we class as a higher anaesthetic grade patient that historically would be admitted at the larger acute sites of Scunthorpe and Grimsby. For nurses looking to gain experience in acute care, this provides an exciting opportunity to develop as prior experience in this area is not essential.
We also have a 15-bedded unit for local patients with general medical needs and patients from the wider locality needing a period of physical rehabilitation following a variety of acute illnesses. We have fantastic links with the wider MDT and have dedicated Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists working with us as part of the team, so education and support are never far away.
For those with an appetite for helping to develop and shape our services, we are working closely with our stakeholders and the hospital charity to create a sensory garden and support clubs at our site. We aim to support patients with long-term health conditions such as Stroke, Parkinson’s, Asthma, Dementia, and those patients stepping down from extended ICU stays in a different way – away from the ‘busyness’ of the trust’s acute wards. This is a new and exciting idea that may help bridge the gap between the community and secondary care. The successful applicants can really help us to shape this service for the NLaG community.
What can we offer?
We really are a work family. As a small hospital, nobody is just a number. We pride ourselves on our excellent working relationship – both inside and outside of work. We have created several social clubs too where our staff can come together to share their interests.
In addition, we also boast a light, bright, airy, working environment with excellent parking facilities – which we encourage you to come along and see for yourself. We have easy access to York, Doncaster, Leeds, Hull, and Scunthorpe, making the commute to us very easy.
We believe that our patients receive the best care when our staff feel valued and supported, and for our nurses to stay motivated and maintain high standards of quality care, it is important that we continuously support their learning and development.
No matter how experienced you are, there will be a period of induction and mentoring when you join us and full support for career progression will be provided to those who express an interest.
In addition, we also provide:
- General relocation allowance up to £4000 (for those living outside of the area)
- Bespoke relocation and onboarding support for you and your family, to include help with finding accommodation, registering with schools, and providing information about the area
- Flexible working
- Rotational posts – rotating every 4/5 months in each area
- Excellent Company Pension
- Generous Annual Leave Entitlement
- Fabulous NHS Staff benefits
- Supportive managerial teams who are keen to develop their staff and clinical ideas
What do you need?
We are looking for enthusiastic, caring, and passionate nurses who want to make a difference. If you are keen to move to a new specialty, let us know and our Continuous Professional Development Team will be on hand to help support you too.
- Registration with the NMC
- Passionate motivated team player
- Maintain high standards of quality care and professionalism
- Demonstrate our core Values of Kindness, Courage, and Respect

The North Lincolnshire district is a mixed industrial and rural community. In addition to the main centres of Grimsby and Scunthorpe the area has many picturesque market towns and villages, including Brigg and Barton which are small market towns concerned with light industries and agriculture. The remaining population is in a mainly farming rural area which extends into the attractive Ancholme Valley and the gently sloping hills of the Lincolnshire Wolds, which have been designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty, with extensive beaches along the coastal strip. These make North Lincolnshire the ideal destination for walkers and cyclists.
Educational facilities in Grimsby, Scunthorpe and Goole, and the surrounding area of Lincolnshire, are of a high standard. The house prices in the area are amongst the lowest in the UK. There is a wealth of cultural and sporting activities in the district suitable for most needs. This includes a marina at South Ferriby for sailing in the Humber Estuary, and a number of well-regarded golf clubs.
