'Providing the excellent care that we would expect for our own families'

Join us and help us deliver this vision to more than 500,000 people across Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch. The Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (RBCH) includes Royal Bournemouth Hospital, Christchurch Hospital and a Sterile Services Department at Alderney Hospital.
Here on the south coast we enjoy a great place to live and a friendly and caring place to work. Every day, we value great team work, improving and adapting, communicating well and taking pride in what we do for patients.
This is an exciting and critical time for the Trust with the Dorset Health System named as one of the more advanced STPs and expected to be within the first wave of Accountable Care Systems. Recommended as the preferred site for the development of emergency services, the Trust will also play a pivotal role in the Dorset Clinical Services Review.

To work in conjunction with the nursing team to assess patients at the point of admission, and assist in the collection of the clinical and social information required to plan for individualised care and treatment. To work independently at times to maintain flow and efficiency through the department, being involved with transfers and discharge planning. To act as a role model for more junior health care assistants.
