Want to be part of the new NHS? Health and Care organisations in Dorset are at the forefront of transforming services to provide excellent, patient-centred care.

Dorset HealthCare recently achieved an Outstanding CQC status and is a dynamic forward-thinking Trust operating throughout Dorset. 

Dorset HealthCare plays a pivotal role in the strong partnership of public sector organisations across Dorset, Bournemouth and Poole. Our community and mental health trust has a caring and committed workforce of around 5,500 staff, serving a population of over 700,000 people.

We are looking for proactive, positive, respectful, supportive, reliable and trustworthy people to join us at Dorset HealthCare – we’re the biggest provider of healthcare in Dorset and offer exciting opportunities for people with a range of skills. We want to be better every day – do you?

‘This is an exciting time for us as we continue improving and adapting. I have seen some great innovation, fantastic teamwork and a real willingness to look at how we can do things differently’ – Eugine Yafele, Chief Executive (May 2019)



Dorset HealthCare is looking to add to their wide range of bank resources.

We need flexible people with phlebotomy skills, although training will be given, to support our County wide antibody testing and swabbing service.

This post requires a friendly, flexible person who is able to work on their initiative but also works as part of a team. You will need excellent communication and interpersonal skills and be able to work in a variety of care settings. It should be noted that this is an exceptionally busy service, so you will need to have good organisational and time management skills. You will need to have good IT skills and be computer literate.

Alongside phlebotomy you will also be expected to take part in the swabbing service; again, training will be given.

Employment in this post requires a Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.
