Looking for a new challenge and to widen your horizon? Hull University Teaching Hospitals may be the next step for you!

Continuing to benefit from the legacy of being the UK’s City of Culture in 2017, Kingston-upon-Hull has more to offer than first meets the eye. Not only does the city boast two Super league rugby teams, but the Championship football team of Hull City AFC also resides here. As well as excellent shopping facilities, the city centre has exceptional transport links all over Yorkshire, including trains to the nearby cities of Leeds and York. Located less than an hours’ drive to the seaside town of Bridlington, Hull is also conveniently placed near to the Humber Bridge, the gateway to Lincolnshire and beyond!          

Hull University Teaching Hospitals has benefited from increased funding allowing for the development of new Emergency Care facilities for both adults and children, as well as the renovation of the main tower block at the Hull Royal Infirmary site. At the Castle Hill Hospital site, the Oncology and Haematology Centre provides specialized care to 1.2 million patients from across the region.
