Join us at this very exciting time as Poole Hospital and Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals have just merged into the University Hospitals Dorset NHS Foundation Trust.

We have ambitious plans to develop our sites, making even better use of our combined resources to serve our population most effectively.

You will now be one of the first new employees of University Hospitals Dorset and you will be taking up the many opportunities that Dorset has to offer in the way of a rewarding work life balance.

We are located within an area of amazing beauty which includes opportunities to drive, walk,  run, swim or cycle in the New Forest , in the Purbecks, along miles of golden beaches and the Jurassic coastline.   Bournemouth is a vibrant university town with a wide selection of restaurants and cafes; theatres, cinemas and sporting activities and Poole attracts many visitors, has a large natural harbour and is perfect for water sports or relaxing at a quayside restaurant. 

Transport links are excellent with Bournemouth International airport, Cross-channel ferry terminals at Poole and direct train access to London. 

Please note all staff being recruited are expected to be available to work flexibly across our new Trust sites when service demands require it.

The Trust is seeking to appoint registered nurses for our adult inpatient wards in a variety of specialties, including medical, surgical, elderly medicine and orthopaedics and trauma. Applications are invited from individuals with excellent interpersonal and communication skills, and the ability to treat all patients, relatives and other members of staff with dignity and respect. You will strive to provide excellent quality of care with a passion for making a real difference.

In the  Staff Friends and Family Test, 80 per cent of staff that responded recommended us as a place to work, our highest ever score for this section of the test. A total of 93 per cent of staff also recommended the hospital as a place for care, our second highest ever score.

Flexible working opportunities are available including rotation posts; please contact us to discuss your individual requirements.

Please note: if this job requires you to have a DBS check to enable you to properly fulfil the requirements of the job, on appointment you will be required to repay the cost of obtaining a DBS check and this amount will be reclaimed from your salary.
