Main duties of the job
Our inpatient units provide rehabilitation to patients with varying complexities of need. Nursing, therapy and medical staff specialise in supporting patients to achieve their goals, enabling them to return home. Our patients come to us following medical, surgical or orthopaedic treatment in an acute environment, or where appropriate, directly from their own homes.
We are proud to be the first stand-alone NHS Community Trust to be awarded an outstanding rating by the Care Quality Commission.
At the heart of every community should be great community health and care delivered by a team who believe care isn't just about treatment but seeing every patient as a person.
Our staff pay attention to the little things by providing support, showing compassion and being someone you can talk to, not just a uniform. It's having a conversation that's not just about health but about being looked after closer to home.
