retirement package based on either your final salary or a

protected against inflation and guaranteed by the government. Every
new employee automatically qualifies. For more details,
NHS employees are able to save money on a huge range of products
and services. Current offers include 50% reductions for theatre

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.
