Vacancy Description

University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust (UHP) is responsible for providing care across the widest of spectrums: from within people’s homes and working with their voluntary sector partners in local communities, to offering the most specialist hospital care available in their regional centre.

Locally the Trust has a secondary care catchment population of 450,000 with a wider peninsula population of almost 2,000,000 people who can access their specialist services. The population is characterised by its diversity – the rural, coastal and urban, prosperity and pockets of deprivation, and wide variance in health and life expectancy.

Together with their partners UHP will develop nationally leading integrated health and care, unlocking better outcomes and reducing inequalities, and develop UHP as a regional specialist centre to improve lives across Plymouth, Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
