Working with us

We do things differently

We are a large, innovative and friendly trust making a big difference to people’s lives across North, East and Mid Devon including Exeter and the surrounding communities.

We don't just provide jobs, we nurture people and their careers, from cutting edge clinical posts to essential support services; including administration, domestic services and catering, IT and engineering to name a few. As well as providing acute and community care, we are recognised nationally and internationally for excellence. We are the lead partner for the University of Exeter College of Medicine and Health and a leading centre for high-quality research and development in the South West peninsula. 

We pride ourselves on providing an inclusive and supportive environment, celebrating diversity, living our values and behaviours, nurturing wellbeing, promoting learning and development and recognising effort and achievement.


Our acute hospitals

Our acute hospital in Barnstaple provides a 24/7 emergency service and is a designated trauma unit operating within a trauma network serving the whole of Devon and Cornwall.  We also offer a range of general medical services, including cardio-respiratory, stroke care and gastroenterology. General surgical services include orthopaedics, urology and colorectal specialities. We also run ophthalmology services, using the latest procedures and techniques to treat glaucoma and macular degeneration.

In Exeter, the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital (Wonford) are recognised for our excellent Princess Elizabeth Orthopaedic Centre, the Centre for Women’s Health (maternity, neonatology and gynaecology services), Cancer Services, Renal Services, Exeter Mobility Centre and Mardon Neurorehabilitation Centre alongside our critical care services and general medical departments.
