It has come to our attention that an individual or group of individuals have been impersonating Chelsea and Westminster Hospital on various recruitment websites, mainly in South Africa and on social media.

The fake job adverts use imagery and text obtained from the Trust website but contact information is via generic email services (such as gmail, live etc), mobile telephone numbers and/or Skype.

Fake job adverts may be used to obtain personal information from potential applicants, request that a fee is paid to process applications, and/or spread malware/computer viruses. Please do not respond to, click on any web links, or provide personal information connected with these fake job adverts—or with any suspicious unsolicited emails.

Authentic Chelsea and Westminster Hospital email addresses always end with @chelwest.nhs.uk or @nhs.net.

If you would like to choose Chelsea and Westminster for your career, all our current job vacancies are listed on the NHS Jobs website. Please note, we always carry out face-to-face interviews with shortlisted applicants in London.
