Healthcare assistant

People put a lot of trust in us as HCAs, and I see it as a real privilege.

As  an HCSW, you will be a valued member of your team. Your focus will be on keeping patients at the centre of all we do, providing high quality care and living our Trust values: Together - Safe | Kind | Excellent.

Our HCSWs fall into three groups:

  • Healthcare assistants (HCA) - this is the largest group of clinical support workers. HCAs provide assistance to nurses and doctors in wards and clinics across the Trust.
  • Theatre support workers (TSW) - TSWs work alongside theatre staff before during and after operations.
  • Maternity care assistants (MCA) - MCAs work in the Rosie Maternity Hospital. The main focus of their role is around helping women before and after giving birth.

Whichever group you work in, you will live up to and promote our culture of compassionate care, built on care, compassion, competence, communication, courage and commitment.
