“I have found Wakefield Hospital extremely friendly and supportive. The staffing levels are effective and because of this, you’re able to provide 110% to your nursing care. There are many opportunities to develop your skills and nursing career.” 

Quote from a visiting nurse.

This is the type of environment we provide so staff feel supported to provide the best of care.

At Wakefield, patients have made a choice to have surgery or receive medical care with us. They are people who take responsibility for their health and who are motivated during recovery. They appreciate high standards of professionalism and are very responsive to our quality nursing care and hospital services.
