Come and join a team that could offer you the growth, training and development you need to be able to give the care you want to give.
Your passion for excellent care for patients matched with our vision for delivering ‘Great Healthcare from Great People’ makes you the perfect fit. We will support you with leadership courses, training and development, as well as flexible working options.
If you want to work for a Trust where staff are caring and put patients first; where innovation flourishes; where there are opportunities to develop your career and you can live and work in the Garden of England, this is the place for you. We have fabulous countryside, great heritage, excellent schools and easy, rapid access to London and the continent.
We are a teaching Trust so we play a vital role in the education and training of doctors, nurses and other health professionals, working closely with local universities and with the medical schools in London, Brighton and Grenada. We also “grow our own” so you don’t necessarily have to have a clinical education to start your career here.
With around 8,000 staff, 1,100 beds and serving a population of 759,000 people, we are one of the largest acute foundation trusts in England.
We provide the full range of district general hospital services from The William Harvey Hospital in Ashford and Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital in Margate. Kent & Canterbury Hospital in Canterbury is a specialist services hub. The Buckland Hospital, Dover, and Royal Victoria Hospital, Folkestone, provides a variety of outpatient, diagnostic and minor injury services.
We work closely with our commissioners and partners in health and social care to provide services to the population we serve which help them to stay well, receive great care when they need it and support them to return home or to the most appropriate place for their long-term care needs.
We are on an improvement journey. Our Care Quality Commission inspection in September 2016 resulted in a recommendation from the CQC that the Trust be removed from special measures. Inspectors said they found widespread improvement across all three of the Trust’s main hospital sites and praised the exceptionally caring nature of our staff.
There is always more to do and we are committed to making the Trust a truly great place to work and improve on our current rating of two hospitals rated Good and the other three hospitals, and the Trust overall, as requires improvement.
We would love you to be part of our journey. Come and join our team!
Please come along and see us on any of our three main sites. There’s no need to book, just come to the main reception at one of our three acute sites between 9am - 1pm.
