CFT encourage integrated working across all our services and we are committed to empowering our staff to work together to find solutions in order to transform ways of working and how we deliver care in Cornwall and our Peripatetic staff have been pinnacle to informing some of these changes.

CFT is a research Trust and we are currently working on large scale projects to bring new services and ways of working to the County so there really is no better time to get involved and play an active part in transforming care across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

We are proud of our innovative, open and hard-working culture and we wish to recruit like-minded individuals who share our passion.
