As a member of our team you’ll use your extensive understanding and knowledge of evidence based practice to enhance the care of our patients. Your ability to plan and evaluate nursing care will be crucial as you lead and supervise the work of qualified and unqualified nurses in your team.

With our increased importance on continued improvement and development of our acute services, we’re as committed to going the extra mile for you, as you do for our patients. We work together to create a positive team spirit, recognising achievements and celebrating success. We know that happy patients start with happy staff. One and all, we care.

We are committed to offering a wide range of exciting and innovative learning and development opportunities to ensure our staff are engaged to work in different ways to support the changing environment in which we operate and deliver our services across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
