Lorraine Szeremeta A message from the Chief Nurse

Lorraine Szeremeta is wearing her nurse uniform and is smiling at the camera and is against a white background.

We know the value of nurses and midwives and the crucial role they play in every patient’s care, and it’s that understanding that helps us develop and keep some of the country’s best nurses.

Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CUH) comprises Addenbrooke’s Hospital and the Rosie Hospital in Cambridge. The Trust provides accessible high-quality healthcare for the local people of Cambridge, together with specialist services, dealing with rare or complex conditions for a regional, national and international population. The Trust is recognised as a centre of excellence and innovation with many of the hospital specialists being leaders in their field.

Addenbrooke’s Hospital provides emergency, surgical and medical care and is the Major Trauma Centre (MTC) for the East of England. It is also a regional centre of excellence for specialist services such as transplantation, cancer, neurosciences, paediatrics and genetics. Based on the same site as Addenbrooke’s, the Rosie Hospital is a women’s hospital and the regional centre of excellence for maternity care.

Whether you’re seeking something new, a newly qualified nurse or midwife at the beginning of your journey, looking to start a new life in the UK from overseas, or just ready for a change, we have a wide range of nursing and midwifery opportunities to suit all.

We offer all our staff a supportive environment in which you can develop your career and expand your knowledge and skills through our comprehensive learning and development programmes.

I am incredibly proud to be the Chief Nurse at Cambridge University Hospitals where our nurses are given opportunities to build the very best career possible.
