The role involves the safe moving and handling of patients and equipment therefore you must be in good physical health to meet this need

The role will involve working across sites at the Whittington Centre in Streatham and Dulwich Hospital in Dulwich with the Lambeth and Southwark Supported Discharge and Rapid Response Teams.
