BRIDPORT Community Hospital is inviting residents to come along to a recruitment event next week and find out more about joining the team as a Bank Registered Nurse or Healthcare Assistant.

Taking place at the hospital on 21 and 28 October from 9am – 12noon, both events will give attendees the opportunity to meet Matron Ellen Holmes and Senior Sister Rachel Foxley, find out about the roles and ask any questions.

For both roles, you would join the team as a Dorset HealthCare Bank worker, covering leave and sickness, with day and night shifts available.

New staff would work on the newly refurbished 24-bed Colmer’s Ward and provide rehabilitation support for elderly patients, as well as palliative and end-of-life care.

Ellen said: “This is your chance to join your local NHS team and be part of your community hospital, delivering high quality care and making a difference to the people of Dorset.

“And by joining Dorset HealthCare as a Bank employee, you can also work in any of the Trust’s other community hospitals across the county. We offer a range of personal and clinical development opportunities.”

The job descriptions can be found online at by searching ‘Bank RGN’ for the Registered Nurse and ‘Bank Healthcare Assistant’ for the other.

Call the hospital reception on 01308 422371 to book your place at a recruitment event. More information about Dorset HealthCare and its services is available at
