A new health centre is due to open in Brackley this summer, housing a community beds service run by Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (NHFT), amongst other services.
The community hospital inpatient beds service will be similar to three other services NHFT runs across the county at Isebrook Hospital in Wellingborough, Danetre Hospital in Daventry, and Corby Community Hospital. They provide specialist care for adults needing medical, physical or specialist rehabilitation, for example after a stroke or brain injury.
As this is a brand new site the Trust need a new local team of Band 5 staff nurses and Band 6 ward sisters to help shape and deliver the new service. To help achieve this, they are holding an open day at Egerton Hall in Brackley on Saturday 29th February where anyone who is interested can go to find out more about the service and the employment opportunities available.
Community hospital inpatient beds service manager, Vanessa Cross, said, “We’re really excited to start delivering the inpatient beds service in a brand new purpose-built facility in Brackley, meaning that patients in the south of the county can be treated closer to home, their families and friends. We’re going to need a strong team who are passionate about making sure we give our patients high quality, compassionate care, whilst also getting the new service embedded.”
Sarah Clarke, Recruitment business partner added, “NHFT is a great Trust to work for. We know that in order to deliver the best possible care to our patients, we also need to support our staff, and the Trust has received national and international recognition for our work on staff wellbeing and engagement. Our excellent quality care is reflected in our Outstanding CQC rating, and we’re looking forward to working with the people of Brackley and the surrounding area to bring our care and expertise to this part of the county.”
