Meet our family


At the heart of what we do are the people who make up our Royal Surrey family. 

They are as committed and caring towards their colleagues as they are their patients. We believe the team spirit is just one reason why our Trust is a brilliant place to work.

Here, people from across our Trust tell you what life is like at Royal Surrey and why they love working here.

Anthony Gartland, Lead Nurse

"By far this has been the friendliest place I’ve worked, you walk up and down the corridors and people smile back at you but also it's a great environment for learning and being able to develop new practice.

"They're very open to new ideas and therefore you get good job satisfaction from what you do within your service."

“I’m working in a compassionate, driven and enthusiastic environment where colleagues are so supportive, warm and friendly.

“Radiotherapy is such a fast-paced profession and there’s many opportunities for role development.

“The Royal Surrey is a great place to work, there’s an excellent training and induction package and there’s lots of support available to do modules and study days to help personal and professional development in your role.”
