‘Providing the excellent care that we would expect for our own families’

Join us and help us deliver this vision to more than 500,000 people across Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch. The Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (RBCH) includes Royal Bournemouth Hospital, Christchurch Hospital and a Sterile Services Department at Alderney Hospital.

Here on the south coast we enjoy a great place to live and a friendly and caring place to work. Every day, we value great team work, improving and adapting, communicating well and taking pride in what we do for patients.

This is an exciting time for our staff, following a recent review of healthcare services in Dorset which will see major changes to the way healthcare is provided in our region. As one of the two acute NHS providers in the east of the county, our services will be closely linked to those provided at Poole Hospital. We’re working in close collaboration to deliver excellent emergency and planned care over the two sites, for the people of east Dorset.


An exciting opportunity has become available for a Band 5 position on Ward 14- The Regional Vascular Unit.

 

Ward 14 is an appealing place to work. We admit elective Vascular cases as well as Vascular emergencies. We are the Regional Vascular Unit for the South, taking emergencies from Dorset, Hampshire, Wiltshire and Jersey.

 

The position is fully flexible, full-time- 37.5 hours per week. This includes nights, weekends and Bank Holidays. We are also willing to accept permanent night shifts.

 

You will need to possess excellent communication skills. Knowledge of surgical procedures/operations and radiological interventions would be advantageous but not essential.

 

In return, we can offer amazing learning and developmental opportunities whether you’re newly qualified or have been in practice for years, including completion of The Society for Vascular Nurses (SVN) competencies. Excellent training opportunities include in-house study sessions focusing on Vascular themes.

 

Please do not hesitate to visit the Ward for more information.

 

Interview date: 17th April 2019
