Would you like to work for an NHS Organisation which is committed to quality and safety and improving the working lives of its employees?
We are looking for motivated, dynamic individuals who are passionate about providing high quality care to all of our patients.
Previous NHS experience is not essential although it is important to have a caring personality, and the ability to work well within a team and take pride in your work.
The successful candidates will be expected to work both day and night shifts over a 7 day week including weekends and bank holidays on a rota system.
It’s essential you possess the following:
• A pragmatic and sensible outlook to life
• The ability to relate to people from a wide variety of backgrounds
• Tact and sensitivity, particularly when helping patients with personal care
• A respectful approach to patients
• The ability to work on your own initiative and as part of a team
• A friendly and caring personality
Health Care Assistants are skilful support workers who provide hands-on care, support and advice to patient and their relatives whilst in hospital. They work with and are supervised by professional clinical staff. Duties will include the following tasks:
• Helping patients to wash or shower

• Making and changing beds
• Turning patients who are confined to bed to avoid pressure sores
• Talking with patients to help them feel less lonely or anxious
• Helping patients with mobility problems to move around
• Giving out and collecting bedpans
• Helping patients to use the toilet and dealing with incontinence
It’s really important to consider before making an application that some parts of the job can be distressing and unpleasant.

Please consider this carefully before you submit your application.
