The Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust is one of the top-performing Trusts in the country, with an enviable patient satisfaction record, innovative services and cutting-edge technology. Rated fourth in the country for staff satisfaction we were recently chosen as one of the Health Service Journal’s best places to work.
We are a unique organisation delivering acute and community services coupled with integrated community health and social care that is organised around primary care.
As an integrated Trust, we employ over 3,000 staff and provide care that is judged as excellent by our patients. Responses to the national inpatient, outpatient, maternity and staff surveys regularly put us in the top 20% of Trusts in England.
We provide acute care based from North Devon District Hospital in Barnstaple. In our community hospitals across north Devon we provide community inpatient care and rehabilitation with a mix of GP and consultant-led beds.
Our community health and social care teams support people to live healthily and independently in their own homes. We do this by responding rapidly to avoid hospital admissions and providing support to enable patients to leave hospital as soon as is safe.
We also offer a range of pan-Devon specialist community services such as health promotion, sexual health and podiatry. This means that we are very different to other NHS Trusts and can offer a wide range of opportunities to staff.
But on top of all that, we’re based in Devon – a county that’s regularly voted as the best place in Britain to live. With world-class beaches, picture-postcard villages, excellent schools and dynamic cities alive with culture, Devon has it all. We are sure you’ll love it here so make that move to a better life.
