Specialist Speech and Language Therapist (Band 6)

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Speech and Language Therapist to join a large, well-established and innovative multidisciplinary Neuro Rehabilitation team as part of our Band 6 neuro rotation scheme. The Community Neuro-Rehabilitation Service offers a comprehensive specialist service to adults with neurological conditions living in the inner city boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark as part of Guys and St Thomas's Foundation Trust. Staff across the two boroughs work together to ensure high quality, client-centred, responsive and efficient services for patients.

There are three community pathways within the neuro rehab service: Stroke, Neuro Conditions and NeuroRehab Enhanced Transition Team (NETT), as well as 6 in-patient neuro rehab beds and a neuro-navigation service. Intervention is goal oriented and we use a self-management approach encouraging patients to participate actively in their rehab.

We are looking for someone with an interest in community rehabilitation to provide a specialist Speech and Language Therapy service, including assessment and treatment of communication and swallowing problems, work closely with other members of the neuro rehabilitation team and other health and social care teams, and contribute to multidisciplinary service improvement initiatives. The rotations currently include working as part of the Stroke Team, Neuro Conditions and the in-patient rehab beds.

This position would suit someone keen to enhance their skills in the rehabilitation of neurological conditions within a forward looking service. You will have postgraduate experience working with adults with neurological conditions.

There are opportunities for joint working with other professionals and teams. Staff are well-supported through supervision and the appraisal process and have access to a planned programme of inservice training in addition to the benefits of belonging to Guys and St Thomas’ Foundation Trust and Kings Health Partners, an Academic Healthcare Centre .

Closing date: 27th June at midnight
Interviews are likely to be held on Friday 6th July 2018
