Healthcare Support Workers
As a Healthcare Support Worker (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 Healthcare Support Workers 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) – work alongside theatre staff before during and after operations.
- Maternity Care Assistants (MCA) – 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.
Although it is hard work, you will be part of a supportive team. Our hospital could not run without our healthcare support workers. At CUH work hard to ensure that your role is rewarding and valued.
