Want to be part of the new NHS? Health and Care organisations in Dorset are at the forefront of transforming services to provide excellent, patient-centred care.
Dorset HealthCare recently achieved an Outstanding CQC status and is a dynamic forward-thinking Trust operating throughout Dorset.
Dorset HealthCare plays a pivotal role in the strong partnership of public sector organisations across Dorset, Bournemouth and Poole. Our community and mental health trust has a caring and committed workforce of around 5,500 staff, serving a population of over 700,000 people.
We are looking for proactive, positive, respectful, supportive, reliable and trustworthy people to join us at Dorset HealthCare – we’re the biggest provider of healthcare in Dorset and offer exciting opportunities for people with a range of skills. We want to be better every day – do you?
‘This is an exciting time for us as we continue improving and adapting. I have seen some great innovation, fantastic teamwork and a real willingness to look at how we can do things differently’ – Eugine Yafele, Chief Executive (May 2019)
Success at reducing readmission rates is our strength. Would you like to join our friendly, multi-disciplinary team as an RMN staff nurse?
The role is a full time rotational post which includes working a variety of shifts for which enhancements are paid including evenings, weekends, public holidays and nights across a 7 day week.
You would be based in our 13 bedded inpatient unit in Bournemouth which is close to shops, the beach and public transport routes. You will be expected to work collaboratively with patients to support person-centred care which promotes their understanding of different aspects of their mental and physical health, developing coping strategies, further stability, life and independent living skills.
Nightingale Court is a rehabilitation step down unit which also promotes patients undertaking vocational and educational activities in the community. Working alongside the Standards within the Triangle of Care promotes patient’s recovery.
Your role will include actively supporting patients engaging in therapeutic activity which extends into the community.
We will support your development with training to enhance your leadership skills, knowledge and experience.
You will be required to undertake a Prevention and Management of Violence and Aggression course and it is a condition of your employment that you successfully complete all aspects of this course; if this is not achieved you will not be able to commence working in the post.
