We will become part of NHS Humber and North Yorkshire ICB. You can continue to use this website to find the information you need, which remains relevant for the Hull area.

The Deep

Why has The Deep joined Working Voices?

Louise Kirby, Ops & Personnel Manager said:

“The Deep is delighted to be forging links with NHS Hull and to be part of the Working Voices initiative. With over 160 members of staff, The Deep is an active employer of local residents and we can see the benefits of helping our crew to give their opinions about the NHS, to the NHS, when consultation is being sought. Doing this in a conventional way can be difficult for those of us who work unusual shift patterns; in the leisure and tourism industry we work when others play!

“The Deep also sees this as opportunity for its workforce to voice its needs for how the NHS can support healthy living, working together as a supportive community to promote positive lifestyle choices.”

About The Deep

The Deep is Hull’s award-winning aquarium that takes you on a journey through prehistoric seas, past tropical lagoons, into the vast open oceans, down to the darkest depths, through the chilly Kingdom of ice and into the future.

Home to spectacular animals including sharks and stingrays, the UK’s only pair of Green sawfish, hundreds of tropical reef fish, Loggerhead sea turtles, a colony of Gentoo penguins, and much more.

The Deep are an education and conservation charity and as such, conservation is at the heart of everything we do. It is because of our loyal visitors that we are able to carry out vital research and conservation work, both in-house, in the UK and right across the world.

The Deep team are passionate about protecting the oceans and the species that live within them. Our projects focus on the aquatic environment and safeguarding the future of endangered animals.
