Poole Hospital offers all you need to start or develop your career

Come and join us at Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. Not only is it a great place to work; it's also a wonderful place to live. The town has great transport links, a bustling quay and some of the best beaches in England. You’ll also have easy access to the Dorset countryside, renowned for its areas of outstanding natural beauty and the spectacular Jurassic Coast, ideal for sports and outdoor activities.

Poole Hospital is one of the largest employers in the region and highly regarded across the NHS, consistently featuring within the top twenty per cent in both national patient and staff satisfaction surveys. We pride ourselves on positive team work, professional development and support staff to reach their fullest potential. All of this is underpinned by our unique philosophy, The Poole Approach, which pledges that we will strive at all times to provide friendly, professional, person-centred care with dignity and respect for all.

This is an exciting time for our staff, following a recent review of healthcare services in Dorset which will see major changes to the way healthcare is provided. As one of the two acute NHS providers in the east of the county, our services will be closely linked to those provided at the Royal Bournemouth & Christchurch Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. We’re working in close collaboration to deliver excellent emergency and planned care over the two sites, for the people of east Dorset.

We provide an extensive package and learning opportunities, where you will develop your surgical and gynaecological knowledge, working with Nurse Specialists in both areas. This includes laparoscopic robotic procedures, early pregnancy, Uro-Gyane and working towards supporting patients in the early stages of pregnancy.

With the commencement of the Surgical Fellowship Programme tailored specifically for Surgical Nurses we aim to support and develop all our staff to a very high standard delivering excellent quality care to all our patients.

We have an exciting future ahead of us in Surgery and welcome you to come and join our team, giving you the opportunity to follow a happy very rewarding career.
