Working for our organisation

Coral Ward is situated within Langley Green Hospital in Crawley. Crawley is situated closely to London and Brighton and benefits from a thriving, vibrant and diverse community. Our Ward is unique in that it works with both Surrey and Sussex localities and so covers a vast geographical area. This has enabled fantastic working relationships with local resources and other trusts (including Surrey and Borders).

We are part of a trust which offers specialist training programs tailored to enable professional development, quality improvement and improve the care our service leaders receive. We firmly believe in 'no health care without self-care' meaning we support and invest in our staff. Just some of the ways we do this include robust supervision packages, staff wellbeing events and away days every 6-8 weeks.
