Band 2

We are one of the country’s top performing NHS Foundation Trusts, looking after the wellbeing of around half a million people across Northumberland and North Tyneside – one of the largest geographical areas of any NHS Trust in England.

We deliver care from 11 acute sites including an emergency care hospital, general and community hospitals, an outpatient and diagnostic centre, an elderly care unit and an integrated health and social care facility.

We have been rated ‘outstanding’ twice overall by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). We are one of the North East’s largest employers with 9,500 dedicated members of staff. We have a Council of Governors with 70 members, representing the public, staff and some of our external partners.

We invest heavily in staff to ensure that the best talent is attracted, developed, looked after, and retained in every area of the organisation. Staff satisfaction is high and our staff consistently rate us as one of the best places to work in the NHS.

We were one of the first NHS Trusts to receive foundation status, and have been a foundation trust for over a decade.

Northumbria Healthcare recognises the positive value of diversity and inclusion. We welcome and encourage job applications from people of all backgrounds. We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates as BAME people are currently under-represented in our workforce.

Candidates must read the entire ‘Applicants Guidance Notes’ before submitting any applications.

Please note that it is a requirement of this Trust that all successful applicants pay for their own DBS certification if a DBS check is required for the post.  The method of payment is a salary deduction from your first monthly pay.



We are looking to recruit two friendly, flexible and conscientious Bank Domestic Assistants to assist our small team at Berwick Infirmary working as and when required to provide cover for holidays, sickness and other absences.

Our Domestic Assistants at Berwick  work a variety of part time hours between 07:00am and 19:00pm, Monday to Friday keeping our  hospital ward, departments, staff offices and public areas clean and tidy.

Previous similar experience is preferred. Full training and uniform will be provided.
