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)
An exciting opportunity has arisen within Poole Intermediate Care Service (PICS) for a Staff Nurse to join the Team. PICS are a multi-disciplinary team who manage acute illness, preventing admission to hospital and also facilitating complex discharges. Good clinical and communication skills are required to provide care to patients being nursed within their own homes.
22.5 hours are available and will include shift working as the service operates 365 days a year 8.00am to 8.00pm. and there is a need to use your car to visit patients in their own homes.
This is a good opportunity for newly qualified applicants, for those wanting to work in the community and for those who really want to make a difference to people's lives.
As a key member of the team you will find the experience challenging, rewarding and varied.
