We are a pioneering research active organisation and we are proud to be doing things differently; whether that be redefining the shape of the local health and care system through our innovative plans for integrated care, or developing new services such as our Frail Older Person’s Assessment Service and our Medically Fit for Discharge Ward.
As well as creating the future, we also know the importance of providing really good, safe, and caring services for our patients. Our iCARE ethos sets out the principles which every member of our staff works to, ensuring good communication, attitude, respect and care for the hospital environment. Our patients tell us we’re getting this right, with our Friends and Family Test results consistently above 95 per cent (patients ‘extremely likely’ or ‘likely’ to recommend us to their friends and family).
Newly qualified registered nurses
Are you a student nurse due to qualify in 2017?
If so we would welcome applications for you to join us at Yeovil District Hospital. We are a forward thinking hospital, moving at a fast pace embracing new ways of working. We are one of only 29 Vanguard hospitals and have received £49M for 2015/16 for our Symphony programme to enable us to radically redesign the way we provide care and to remove barriers that stop us from delivering the best possible care for our patients.
We are in the midst of a technology revolution with the second half of this decade seeing enormous changes. Healthcare remains remarkably untouched by this revolution but at Yeovil Hospital we plan to change this. For us embracing technology is important to improve patient care and safety. We are in the process of implementing Electronic Health Records to provide a single record of patient information to improve safety and outcomes and to provide a single record of patient information to improve safety and outcomes. This will not be the end of the journey. We think big, start small and go fast and we are uniquely positioned in this Trust to pioneer the future of healthcare in the UK.
Patient safety and experience is also important to us. We won the Nursing Times Patient Safety Award 2014 and were finalists in the Nursing Standard Enhancing the Patient Experience 2015. We also value our staff and have repeatedly been rated as one of the Top 10 healthcare employers in the country.
We offer an excellent Preceptorship programme for all newly qualified staff and have experienced Practice Nurse Educators who can support you in the clinical environment to ensure you achieve your full potential.
