Part Time

Come and join us at Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. Not only is it a great place to work; it's also a wonderful place to live. The town has great transport links, a bustling quay and some of the best beaches in England. You’ll also have easy access to the Dorset countryside, renowned for its areas of outstanding natural beauty and the spectacular Jurassic Coast, ideal for sports and outdoor activities.

Poole Hospital is one of the largest employers in the region and highly regarded across the NHS, consistently featuring within the top twenty per cent in both national patient and staff satisfaction surveys. We pride ourselves on positive team work, professional development and support staff to reach their fullest potential. All of this is underpinned by our unique philosophy, The Poole Approach, which pledges that we will strive at all times to provide friendly, professional, person-centred care with dignity and respect for all.

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. As one of the two acute NHS providers in the east of the county, our services will be closely linked to those provided at the Royal Bournemouth & Christchurch Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. We’re working in close collaboration to deliver excellent emergency and planned care over the two sites, for the people of east Dorset.

There are plans for hyper-acute stroke care for East Dorset to ultimately be provided by Royal Bournemouth Hospital; however some stroke services will continue to be provided at Poole Hospital for the foreseeable future. Patients from the Poole Hospital catchment area will be repatriated to the acute stroke care unit at Poole for their ongoing acute and rehabilitation care. The next two years are expected to see many changes in how stroke care is provided across the two organisations.

We are looking for proactive, motivated Band 5 Registered Nurses who are committed to personal professional development to join our team on the Stroke Unit at Poole Hospital. The successful candidate will need to be committed to providing a high standard of patient care, in line with National Stroke Guidelines.

You will be supported to develop your skills in the assessment and nursing management of stroke patients via our in-house training, which included development of post-thrombolysis care skills.

An excellent benefits package associated with an Agenda for Change NHS permanent contract, including:

Flexibility with working hours facilitating work life balance.

Highly competitive leave package (27 days plus public holidays, rising to 30 days after 5 years’ service).

Good employer pension contribution.

A variety of salary sacrifice schemes i.e. childcare vouchers and car scheme.

Career development with funded training and personal development; we will provide a structured training package to support stroke specific developments and evidence based practice.

The role also offers a competitive relocation package, as well as the opportunity to live and work in a beautiful location.

The Trust is facing times of great change and opportunities as we drive forward the transformation of “Stroke Care” within Dorset, so looking for resilient and flexible managers to lead with strength.

If this job requires you to have a DBS check to enable you to properly fulfil the requirements of the job, on appointment you will be required to repay the cost of obtaining a DBS check and this amount will be reclaimed from your salary.

Closing Date: 30 November 2018
