Working in the NHS and providing care to our patients is an incredible and rewarding career. If you are passionate about patient care and having a direct influence on a person’s health, this could be the role for you.
Whether you are currently out of work, looking for a new start, or have been thinking about a change in career, we would love to hear from you!
What is a HCA?
A Healthcare Assistant or a Healthcare Support Worker is a very varied role and can differ slightly depending on the ward you work on. HCAs make sure the patient experience is as comfortable and as stress-free as possible. It can also be the stepping stone into many other roles within the NHS.
Some of the daily tasks of a HCA include:
- Washing and dressing patients
- Serving meals
- Helping patients to keep active
- Monitoring patient’s conditions
I don’t have care experience, can I apply?
You don’t need to have experience in a care setting to start your healthcare career with us. At Dorset County Hospital we provide training and support before you start your role. More information on this training and support is available below. What we do ask of you, is to ensure you uphold our Trust values, are passionate about care and committed to supporting our patients.
