Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust provides services through its three hospitals in Andover, Basingstoke and Winchester. We provide all general hospital services for planned and emergency care as well as specialist services. These include Pseudomyxoma Peritonei for which we are one of the only two national centres treating this rare abdominal cancer. The Trust also provides services at the Countess of Brecknock Hospice in Andover and outpatient services are provided in Alton, Bordon and Romsey.
The Trust employs around 5,000 staff and our values apply to every member of our Team. These values are centred around caring about our patients and our staff; being accountable and responsible; having respect for all and integrity in everything we do and always encouraging and challenging each other to do our best. To be successful, applicants will need to demonstrate that they fully share these values.
Victoria Ward is a busy and dynamic 27 bedded acute medical ward specialising in the care of gastrointestinal & endocrine disorders. Our patients are admitted with a wide variety of illnesses including inflammatory bowel diseases, unstable diabetes, chronic and acute liver disease, disorders related to alcohol, gastrointestinal bleeding, cancers of the GI tract, and other general medical conditions.
