The NHS is changing. More emphasis on community-based care means there’s never been a better time to join us.

The CQC has rated us ‘outstanding’ and says that  our colleagues feel supported, valued and respected, with high levels of staff and patient satisfaction.

Our vision is to deliver excellent local services which improve the health of our communities. To do this we need outstanding people who share our values (CARE). CARE stands for:

  • Compassionate

  • Responsive
  • Excellent

Are you a Band 6 Health Visitor? If so why not come and join a friendly and professional team in Kent. We work in the Ashford District covering the town and surrounding areas.

Do you want to reduce your carbon footprint? Electric cars are now available as part of the salary sacrifice scheme.
  7. We pledge to change the way we think and act about mental health and have invested in our time to change champions.
