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.

With both the New Forest and Isle of Purbeck on our doorstep, over 7 miles of stunning sandy beaches and coastal paths, we are located within an area of amazing beauty providing a great place for you to achieve your rewarding work life balance.

This post is a developmental role within the Acute Therapy Team, where once you have met the appropriate objectives you will progress to a band 6 and join the existing rotations through medicine, critical care, cardiology, surgery, critical care follow up, respiratory outpatients and respiratory care.
