The NHS is one of the largest employers on the planet, and is the biggest in Europe, there must be a reason why so many people make their career with the NHS.

The NHS offers a huge range of exciting and challenging opportunities for people who are passionate about making a difference. With more than 300 different careers on offer, there is a job for you no matter what your interests, skills or qualifications.

No matter what area of the NHS you join, you will become part of a talented, passionate team of people committed to providing the best care and treatment to patients.

This is a pivotal time for NHS Dorset CCG and you can play a part in it. Through the Clinical Services Review we are reshaping health services in Dorset, through Better Together we are working closer with our social care partners and through our engagement activities we are involving patients more than ever. This is a great time of opportunity for the NHS and we need talented, forward-looking individuals to bring their skills and vision to our organisation.

Our Mission

As an organisation we are constantly striving to lead continuous improvements to health and care services in Dorset. Our key mission is to support people in Dorset to lead healthier lives, for longer.

This mission sets out our ultimate purpose. It defines what we must aim to achieve every day, through every decision and every interaction we have as an organisation. It also incorporates our vision statement. Our mission statement is explained as follows:

  • 'Supporting people' reflects our role of commissioning services for those who fall ill and in preventing illness in the first place. It also recognises the need for us to support people to manage their own health and to work with them to do this successfully.
  • We have a duty of care for all people while they are 'in Dorset' - not just Dorset residents.
  • 'Healthier lives' is the ultimate outcome we are aiming for. It reflects a need to prevent illness (e.g. through education), as well as recognising the need to provide timely services for everyone.

As a clinical commissioning group we have a responsibility as leaders within the health economy. Our unique position as clinicians also allows us to view things differently.

We already have an excellent health service in Dorset but excellent services can still be improved and this is where you come in.
