Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals (DBTH) is one of Yorkshire’s leading acute trusts, serving a population of more than 444,000 across South Yorkshire, North Nottinghamshire and the surrounding areas.

DBTH has three main hospital sites and a number of additional services; the Trust is one of only six teaching hospitals in Yorkshire and is proud to support 25% of all medical students in the region, and 30% of all other healthcare professional students.

We have over 6,000 members of staff who all contribute to the vision of becoming the safest trust in the country, and are proud to be part of team DBTH. As a Trust, it’s important to us that we retain, and develop our teams and encourage a great sense of community and identity. We have an accessible leadership team and an understanding that each and every member of the team makes a difference and has a voice.

As a member of Team DBTH, you will deliver safe, compassionate care, achieving the highest standard of patient care. You will be focused, enthusiastic and embody our vision of being outstanding in all we do, exampling our ‘We Care’ values in your daily work.

As a newly qualified nurse you will access our award winning preceptorship programme. It is designed to support newly qualified professionals with their transition from student to qualified practitioner over a 12 month period. During the 12 month programme, you will be personally supported by an experienced practitioner (a preceptor), to develop your confidence, clinical skills, and professional values. You will also be supported educationally by a faculty of multi professionals, who will deliver a multitude of teachings, leadership, clinical skills and educational simulation throughout the 12 months.

The preceptorship programme includes 14 study days covering a range of bespoke topics and a comprehensive preceptorship handbook to support development in practice, and provide you with a foundation for continuous professional development in the future. In addition to this, the programme encompasses profession specific self-directed study, mandatory training and skills assessments. The programme aims to treat each of you as individuals, and ensure that you are fully aware of how important you are in our trust values and our journey to becoming ‘the safest trust in England, and outstanding in all that we do’.

At the end of the 12 month programme, we will support you to develop your career in the direction that suits you. We will offer you further academic support, to develop you into a highly qualified professional, so you can care for our patients confidently and competently every time.

It is our goal to give those who join team DBTH the tools and opportunities in order to grow their career, with many of our staff starting their career at the Trust before going on to leadership, advanced clinical practitioner, research and education roles within the organisation or local NHS teams. So whether you spend just one year or fifty with us, it’s our pledge to help you Develop, Belong and Thrive, Here.
