Our Philosophy is: “Live Happy, Care Well”
We believe those two things go hand in hand. If you’re not essentially happy in life, the care you provide will not be the best it can be. Equally if you’re not equipped to care well there will be a tension that will affect your happiness.
At Ocean Healthcare we are continually investing in our training and support functions to help our healthcare workers to be the best they can be. While we are always professional and work hard we also build fun and joy into what we do.
Happiness is an active choice we all have to make each day. We believe that for many healthcare workers Agency Working is a great way of life. While you need to do your bit, a great agency should provide you with a variety of flexible work opportunities to keep you as busy as you’d like to be.
Build work around your happiness and be happy in your work.
