Posted 21 September by NHS Business Services Authority

Are you an HCPC registered speech and language therapist who is looking for diverse and varied role? Do you want to be part of a Trust who cares for their staff and places value in supporting their development?

We have the role for you!

We are looking for an enthusiastic Speech and Language Therapist to join the inpatient acute team at The Royal Bournemouth Hospital. The successful candidate will have specialist clinical knowledge / skills in dysphagia and communication and be passionate about providing patient-centred care and partaking in service development. Videofluoroscopy and tracheostomy experience is desirable but competencies and training will be provided where needed.

The successful candidate will be providing dysphagia and communication therapy to patients with a wide range of clinical diagnoses. The role is based on the acute wards, providing care to patients with respiratory, surgical and critical care needs. Working closely with senior members of the team, the development of the SLT role in ITU will be a primary focus of this position. The planned merger with Poole Hospital will provide future opportunities with head and neck, tracheostomy, voice, acquired brain injury and oncology patients. This post provides excellent opportunities for on-going personal and professional development with joint teaching and shadowing opportunities.

As a new member of the team, we need you to be passionate about providing excellent care, be flexible with weekend working and be highly motivated.

Due to our planned merger with Poole Hospital later this year there may be opportunity for exposure to other specialist clinical areas such as ENT/voice, head and neck oncology and acquired brain injury with joint shadowing and professional development opportunities.

We invite you to talk to us and you would be welcome to visit the department.

We hope to see your application soon.

It is anticipated that the Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust will merge in 2020 to form East Dorset Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. It is a condition of employment that all staff being recruited in the period before merger will work across all sites pre and post-merger
