DDRC Healthcare employs both permanent and bank contracted staff.
To meet the needs of our 24-hour services we require a wide variety of skills and flexibility. Bank staff come from all sorts of backgrounds, for example students, nurses and firemen.
We employ doctors, nurses, chamber operators, researchers, trainers, engineers and organisational support staff. We are totally committed to maintaining high standards through ongoing training and opportunities to share skills.
DDRC Healthcare, as a charity, also benefits from the input of the volunteers who make up our Board of Trustees. We are grateful to them for the skills and commitment that they bring. If you are interested in volunteering for us as a Board Member, please get in touch to talk to us about the skills and experience that you could contribute.
We regularly have opportunities such as Student Nurse placements, short-term Junior Doctor contracts or PhD studentships (in partnership with other academic institutions). We are keen to talk with anyone who has ideas of how they could work with us. We hold hyperbaric medicine Taster Days for those who are interested in diving medicine and/or hyperbaric medicine and want to find out more about it. Keep an eye on our Events & Training Courses pages for details of these.
As a charity we have a Board of Trustees who work with us on a voluntary basis. This is an important role and we are always keen to talk people who feel they have relevant skills and experience that they would like to share with us. We are also keen to talk to any public figures who have a high profile and who would be interested in supporting our work as a patron. A key element of our work is sharing messages related to diver safety education and the uses of hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
