What our staff say about us -
Jess- As a newly qualified nurse the unit has offered me a supportive environment to enable me to start my journey as a staff nurse. After training in London Hospitals it was daunting to start working at a new hospital, however the nursing and multidisciplinary team have made me feel welcome and confident. Although Poole is a DGH it is very busy with great opportunity to learn. I would recommend this unit to any nurse looking to start their first job in a busy friendly unit
