Working with Us
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.
We’re open for the 10,000 patients we see each and every day across our different services in Norfolk. That’s what makes us Outstanding.
When NCH&C recently turned ten years old, we spoke to some of our staff who had been at the trust since day one about how what it’s like to work here. Have a watch to see what they say about NCH&C:
Working for a NHS community trust is very different to working in an acute setting, but it’s just as rewarding.
- Working for us means you’ll play a key role in delivering more personalised care, closer to home. This element of the NHS is one of the most popular with patients and is vital in supporting patients’ recovery from illness and leading efforts on preventative and wellness services.
- Community health and care is the foundation of NHS services. 90% of contacts between health professionals and patients occur in the community or in patient’s homes.
- Working in the community will provide you with the opportunity to develop a longer-term and more personal relationship with patients and carers, and other professionals.
We're working hard to ensure to ensure NCH&C is seen as the employer of choice both locally and regionally. We recently embarked on our most ambitious recruitment of apprentices as we committed to 'growing our own workforce'. Being able to help more people begin and progress steadily through their NHS career will help us to ensure our clinical vacancies are filled and that we can continue providing the crucial community health and care our communities rely on and deserve.
