Job Description

Outstanding people, outstanding performance...

Deliver Outstanding Patient Care in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Not just one stunning landscape but a collection of different experiences, the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is one of the most remarkable locations in Britain. Dorset is also the perfect place to build your career – with a turnover of £150 million and 2500 capable, committed staff delivering acute hospital services to more than 200,000 people, we can give you all the challenge you need.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated staff nurse with a keen interest in caring for the critically ill and their families. You will bring proven experience in an acute hospital setting, giving you deep understanding of professional nursing issues. You will be working within a supportive and dynamic critical care team with opportunities to gain a wide range of experiences. A full orientation program is available, and ongoing education of staff is actively supported. The successful applicant will demonstrate a pro-active approach to the care of the critically ill.

Critical Care Services consists of an Intensive Care and a High Dependency unit which equates to 8 Critical Care beds. These beds are used flexibly to provide high quality patient care. Experience will be offered in both areas as a part of a rotational programme and includes rotation on to nights.
