Here’s more about the role and what we’re looking for; 

Job overview

The world population is ageing and we are all familiar with the challenges of meeting the needs of the growing number of older people. Here at Samuel Johnson and Sir Robert Peel Community Hospitals we all work tirelessly to ensure the right care and support services are in place for our patients who can have a variety of medical conditions.

It’s important to celebrate longevity and it is equally vital that longevity is coupled with an excellent quality of life and a sense of personal and social well-being. Thus, our vision for our patients is they should live long and healthy lives, enjoying an active, fulfilling and independent existence– in which the ageing process becomes a positive rather than a negative experience.
