Our staff are as important to us as the care we give to our patients. That’s why we’re committed to ensuring that opinions and ideas are valued and implemented as much as possible.
It’s because of this we’ve featured in the top 20% of all trusts nationally for our staff engagement scores in the annual staff survey for the last 3 years.
We make sure the right support is available to you for development and training. Our Practice development team offers support to all registered practitioners and newly qualified nurses at the Trust. We run a 12-month preceptorship programme, where all newly registered nurses are allocated a mentor with lots of experience and who’ll guide and help staff in their new role.
The Trust is also happy to support Return to Practice Nurses.
In addition we have the Band 5 Nurse development programme that helps develop staff even further.
As our Trust's values are so crucial to the way we work every day, we're really keen to hear from candidates who will demonstrate them when joining our team.
We also offer a range of apprenticeships, click the link to learn more.
