Working at NCH&C

At the heart of every community should be great community health and care delivered by a team who believe care isn’t just about treatment, but seeing every patient as a person.

Why choose Norfolk’s community NHS?

Working in NHS community trust is very different to working in an acute setting, but it’s just as rewarding.

Some of our teams work in smaller wards and clinics in our community hospitals, while others work out in the community, looking after patients in their own homes, care homes, or GP surgeries. Compared to working in a large acute hospital, our work is much more personal. You’ll often see the same patients several times, getting to know them and their families.

We have over 2,500 staff, working across the whole of Norfolk.

Over 80% of these are healthcare professionals such as Nurses, Doctors, Healthcare Assistants, and Allied Health Professionals like Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists. Our clinicians are supported by our vital support services colleagues, who provide things like IT, HR, Admin, Finance, and Estates. As well as roles of all levels and plenty of progression opportunities, there are many routes into a career at NCH&C, including apprenticeships, volunteering, and Return to Practice.

  • Diverse and welcoming workforce where you can be yourself
  • Regular staff recognition initiatives and events
  • Free staff gyms and wellbeing service
  • Supportive community of staff networks
  • Flexible working options from day one
  • High levels of staff satisfaction measured by NHS staff survey
  • Training and career development opportunities as standard
  • Generous NHS pension and staff discounts

The best thing about being a community physio is having more time to spend with my patients.


MSK Physiotherapist

I have more quality time where I can connect with my patients on a one-to-one basis. Often, I am the first point of contact with my patients, so it means a lot that I am not in a rush. I can give that compassionate and quality care to our patients.
