Our goal is to care for, educate and support our staff so that we can all improve our patients’ quality of life. We believe that developing and nurturing our staff enables them to provide better patient care, and that investing in our staff is investing in our patients.
Our staff are our greatest asset, and we recognise that patient care is only as good as our team is.
We provide a comprehensive multidisciplinary education program to all staff, with opportunities for you to develop your knowledge, technical and non-technical skills.
At John Hunter ICU we're working hard to develop a culture that promotes all our staff's health and wellbeing through safe rostering, adequate support and supervision. We embrace and value the importance of a safe, civil and professional courteous environment in which we value each other and their contribution.
We also support our staff to look after themself, with many staff enjoying Newcastle's great climate and their hobbies together outside work - running, cycling, rock climbing, kite surfing and mountain bike.
