The NHS is so much more than popping to the GP for a prescription, booking into hospital for an operation or needing assistance from the Accident & Emergency, or even ambulance service. In fact, there are more than 300 careers on offer for people from all walks of life and with all interests, skills and qualifications. So whether you’re looking for a career in medicine or are interested in a vital ‘behind-the-scenes’ role like admin, reception, IT or….well, the list just goes on, here’s what you need to know.

In any one day over 835,000 people see their GP or Practice Nurse, 50,000 need to visit A&E and 36,000 people are in hospital for planned treatment. There are 18,000 calls to NHS Direct and 94,000 people admitted to hospital in an emergency situation.
Each of them is cared for by an NHS Trust, Acute Trust, Mental Health Trust or, on a local basis, a Primary Care Trust – there are over 450 of these in total across the UK.
And every single one of them operates 24/7 and relies on dedicated and committed staff, from the surgery to the canteen, cleaners to consultants.
