OUR TRUST VALUES
Our Trust is a great place to work and we are keen to ensure that all our employees have the right values in order that we can provide the best service to our patients. These values are very important to us, and as a potential candidate you should be made aware that we test for these throughout the whole assessment/recruitment and selection process, and will only interview and recruit individuals who demonstrate these values through their application and behaviour.
Details of our Values can be found on our website link 'Work for us'
Dear Future Colleague
How would you like to work in a hospital where you have time to deliver the care you feel your patients deserve? Would you like to be given the opportunity to develop the skills required to care for the increasing demands of patients who are cared for in the modern NHS. Would you like to feel supported by your team and senior managers? If you have answered yes then I am proud to say that Evesham Community Hospital is the place for you.
The Hospital is part of Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust and holds the traditional values of a community hospital with high standards of holistic care, time to talk to your patient, build relationships and be part of their recovery from admission to discharge. Care for patients with a multitude of conditions from acute stroke recovery to end of life care. In addition to this we also look after patients with sub-acute needs and provide support through our training and development team for all staff to have the skills required to care for such complex patients. All RNs are supported to achieve the Trusts core competencies with training provided for RNs to cannulate, perform venepuncture, be IV competent and able to pass an NG tube.
If you are newly qualified the trust offers a preceptorship programme where you would be supported by a ward mentor and the preceptorship programme lead. If you have been qualified for over a year and would like to become a mentor, we can provide this training through Worcester University, this is something that is actively encouraged as we are passionate about developing our staff. We have high impact ambassadors/link nurses for a variety of roles from tissue viability to important choices (end of life care). If you have a particular area of interest you are actively encouraged to become a link nurse/ambassador and are provided with the training to perform the role.
We expect our nurses to hold the values of the trust be courageous, ambitious, responsive, empowering and supportive. If you hold these values and this letter appeals to you please spend some time to apply and come and work with us and be part of the exciting developments in our hospital.
