This is an exciting opportunity for a first class professional Nurse Leader. Dorset HealthCare is part of the national first wave Accountable Care System development and is also very well placed to achieve excellence in the delivery of physical and mental health services to people of all ages in Dorset and beyond.

Fiona Haughey is retiring and we are looking for someone who is a first class role model to replace her. A professional nurse leader, who leads by example, and engenders the credibility to lead all professional staff in Dorset HealthCare.

We want someone who has a passion for Quality, with experience of delivering continuous quality improvement and constantly striving for and delivering excellence in care. The Director of Nursing and Quality will ensure that we always put patients first in all that we do, and ensure that the Trust Board and all teams in the organisation are continuously focussed on delivering that objective.

You will demonstrate a track record of empowering and motivating staff, working with multidisciplinary teams and across organisational boundaries to get the very best out of our workforce.

We are looking for a professional nurse leader with experience from any division of nursing, acute, community or mental health/learning disability.

If you have the passion, experience and ambition to rise to the challenges we have in Dorset then we want to hear from you.
