Job Advert Role Description

Are you looking for an exciting new challenge? Do you want to join a service where you can make a difference every day? If so, we have the perfect role for you! Knowing that you are making a difference to people’s lives is rewarding in itself. However, our many roles offer much more than that. As well as helping you grow and develop your talent, we want you to feel proud of where you work and what you do.



A fantastic opportunity has become available for a Hospital Director to join us at Burston House. Based in the pretty village of Burston in South Norfolk, close to the market town of Diss, the strength of Burston House lies in the quality of the comprehensive assessment, treatment and care it provides. The emphasis is on a holistic and individualised approach delivered by multidisciplinary teams who are skilled, experienced professionals trained in their specific field. Burston House provides quality, specialised treatment for adults with learning disabilities where their needs challenge mainstream service provision in  low secure services.

You will take responsibility for effectively implementing hospital policies and procedures to enable the provision of a high-quality service, both in respect of patient care and employee engagement.
