If you already work for the NHS, you may want to skip straight to what's special about CMFT. Otherwise, read on.

NHS benefits

As an NHS employee, you will enjoy not just a competitive salary, but also a comprehensive benefits package.

  • Pay enhancements
    You will be rewarded on top of your basic salary for out-of-hours, shift and overtime working
  • Holiday
    You'll enjoy 27 days per year (rising to 33 days after 10 years' service) plus eight general and public holidays
  • Pension
    The NHS is one of the very few employers that still offer a retirement package based on either your final salary or a percentage of your pay over your whole career. The package is fully protected against inflation and guaranteed by the government. Every new employee automatically qualifies. For more details, visit www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/pensions
  • Discounts
    NHS employees are able to save money on a huge range of products and services. Current offers include 50% reductions for theatre tickets, £20 off on orders at Littlewoods and, even, funding for up to 30% of the purchase price of a Bovis home. Find out more at www.nhsdiscounts.com
  • Learning and development
    The NHS is committed to providing training and career development opportunities to all full-time and part-time staff. You will have your own personal development plan, and your progress will be reviewed annually.

What's special about CMFT?

Some of the benefits we offer are unique to CMFT. Here are just a few of them.

  • Cutting-edge healthcare site
    Our £500 million development project has resulted in a state-of-the-art healthcare environment, which will bring many benefits to both patients and staff.
  • Greater integration
    For example, departments whose work is closely linked are now located nearer to each other, so nobody has to travel too far around the hospitals. And the expansion of pneumatic tube coverage across the whole site for pathology samples will mean halving the turnaround time for samples that need diagnostic tests.
  • New facilities
    We now have dedicated facilities for planned treatment, so operations will no longer need to be cancelled because of emergency admissions. We have also built more single rooms with en-suite facilities so patients can enjoy greater privacy.
  • Centre of excellence
    Our new development is set to become a centre of excellence for healthcare services and clinical research.
  • On-site nursery
    The new site is home to a purpose-built nursery, which has extended opening hours. It offers a safe, happy and stimulating environment to the children of CMFT employees.
