We are rated Good by the Care Quality Commission and are ranked among top NHS employers. Community healthcare is our focus and our passion. We champion the role of community health professionals to make sure our patients get great care closer to home.

The NHS is a great environment in which to build a career and in this role you can make a real difference to staff communications and the profile of community healthcare services.
