About us

UHS is a large teaching hospital located on the south coast of England. Our mission is to provide clinical care, to educate current and future healthcare professionals, and to use research to improve healthcare for the future.

We’re proud to be able to provide services to over 1.9 million people living in Southampton and south Hampshire, as well as specialist services such as neurosciences, cardiac services and children's intensive care to more than 3.7 million people in central southern England and the Channel Islands. We’re a designated major trauma centre, and one of only two places in the south of England to offer adults and children full onsite major trauma care provision.

Depending on the kind of work you'd like to do, you could work in one of four locations in and around Southampton:

  • Southampton General Hospital (including Southampton Children's Hospital)

  • Princess Anne Hospital (maternity, fetal and maternal medicine)

  • Countess Mountbatten House (palliative care)

  • The New Forest Birthing Centre

We also provide services at the Royal South Hants Hospital in Southampton, as well as Lyminghton, Portsmouth, Poole, Bournemouth, Salisbury, Winchester, Basingstoke, the Isle of Wight, Chichester, Jersey and Guernsey.

And we run Taplins, a nursery service for staff run both on and offsite, so if you're interested in a career in childcare, then we can offer that too.
