About Sirona care & health

It’s a really exciting time to join Sirona. In April, we embarked on a innovative new contract to deliver adult community health services across Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire – significantly expanding our organisation and bringing new opportunities to our staff to develop and grow.

Over the next ten years, together with our colleagues across the system – in particular, primary care and the third sector – we’ll work with individuals, carers and families to transform out-of-hospital services to support people to live longer and healthier lives, accessing care and support close to where they live.

What we offer

Beginning your first role as a newly qualified practitioner is one of the biggest steps you’ll take in your career. The transition from student to accountable professional can be daunting, and there may be times where your new responsibilities feel stressful or challenging.

Our comprehensive preceptorship programme is designed to help you embrace the shift.

You’ll have the opportunity to learn and develop alongside other newly qualified staff from across the organisation and share your experiences through professional groups.

The programme is designed to build on your existing knowledge and skills, and strengthen the professional values and beliefs that form the cornerstones of your behaviour and practice.

The programme is structured over 12 months and promotes the principles of reflective practice, using a mixture of self-directed study and subject-focused workshops.

With the support of a practice supervisor you’ll develop a portfolio of evidence that demonstrates your continuing professional development and core practice skills related to your role and service area.

We understand how critical this phase of your career is and we’re committed to guiding you through it.
