Highly Specialist Upper Airway Therapist

Band 7

Band range£45,780- £51,393 per annum, all inclusive (Pro rata)

Ref: 312-RB-0329

30 hours per week (0.8wte)


Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust is the largest heart and lung centre in the UK and among the largest in Europe. We are a partnership of two specialist hospitals which are known throughout the world for our expertise, standard of care and research success.

Our upper airway service was established 7 years ago by Dr James Hull, to treat patients with chronic refractory cough, inducible laryngeal obstruction and other laryngeal symptoms, often with no evidence of asthma or other respiratory disease. Since then, our service has grown exponentially, and we have become one of the leading specialist centres in the UK for the assessment and treatment of upper airway disorders, with a thriving multi-disciplinary team at its heart.

Many patients with upper airway disorders have treatment needs that span specialist speech and language therapy (SLT) and respiratory physiotherapy, given the inseparable relationship between laryngeal and respiratory function. This exciting opportunity is open, therefore, to highly specialist SLTs and respiratory physiotherapists, wishing to broaden their skill set and deliver innovative, integrated therapy to patients with upper airway and breathing pattern disorders.

You must have sufficient experience and relevant specialist knowledge for this Band 7 role and a clear commitment to upper airway and breathing pattern work. Working alongside highly regarded respiratory physicians, ENT consultants, specialist therapists, nurses and clinical psychologist, you will assist in consultant-led clinics and have the opportunity to develop new ways of delivering therapy, particularly given the changes in practice resulting from Covid-19. The Trust is very supportive of continuing professional development and regular clinical supervision will be provided.
