Why Solent?

Established in 2011, we are a leading provider of community and mental health services, with a top performing and award winning Academy of Research and Improvement. The 4,900 talented people at the Heart of Solent share an ambitious vision to keep more people healthy, safe and independent at, or close to, home.

Rated as ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission, with ‘Outstanding’ in caring, we have a strong learning and improvement culture and are striving to be an ‘Outstanding’ organisation. Our clear and ambitious vision and the active role we play in joining up, and shaping, future care were recently cited by the inspection team as examples of ‘outstanding’ practice.

Solent NHS Trust really is a great place to work. For three years in a row, we have seen an improvement in our NHS Staff Survey results, and our 2018 results saw us as ‘best in class’ nationally in the combined Community, Mental Health and Learning Disability trust class. We continue to invest heavily in creating an environment in which everybody counts, where people feel engaged in their work and motivated to deliver the very best care, embedding their HEART values throughout.

Join us and start making a real difference to the health and wellbeing of our communities.

Great care starts with great people. Be your best, and in return we will do our very best for you.

We are always keen to hear from people who share our commitment to quality and who are passionate about making a difference. We have a wide range of career options available. Whatever your role, you will be supported with learning and development programmes to help you to continually develop.

We want to make this a great place to work. We recognise that this is not just about pay. It is also about the culture of the organisation, the relationships you develop, the opportunities that are open to you and the benefits you enjoy.
