Our ambitious multi-million pound plans to develop our sites are well underway, including developing RBH as the major acute and emergency hospital in East Dorset, PH as the major planned care hospital, and ambitious plans for Christchurch to support on-going patient treatment.

Joining UHD gives you the opportunity to enjoy all that Dorset has to offer. Bournemouth is a vibrant university town , and Poole has a large natural harbour and is perfect for water sports or relaxing at a quayside restaurant.

You will join a highly skilled, motivated team delivering bowel cancer population screening to Dorset. Bowel cancer screening is offered to every Dorset resident from the ages of fifty six years to seventy five years.

Over the next three years the screening age will be lowered to fifty years enabling the early detection of even more colorectal cancers. Successful candidates will be employed by University Hospitals Dorset NHS Foundation Trust, based at the Poole Hospital site. There will be an expectation that you travel to three other screening sites within Dorset.

Poole town boasts a bustling quay, some of the best beaches in England and a stunning natural harbour. From Poole there is easy access to the Dorset countryside, renowned for its areas of outstanding natural beauty and the spectacular Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, ideal for sports and outdoor activities. We have excellent schools, and top-rated family attractions.

Our town centre location means that we are conveniently situated for public transport. The bus and mainline train stations are both within easy walking distance, as are the Lighthouse Arts Centre, Poole Park and high street shops.
