Do you have a passion for Adult Neuro-Rehabilitation? Would you like to join an energetic and supportive team? Our friendly team consists of 13 Dietitians, 7 Speech & Language Therapists, and 3 administrators.

Our team is expanding and we have an exciting new post within our Dietetic Team. We are looking for an experienced Dietitian to assist with leading on the management of a varied neuro-rehabilitation caseload across two wards, Daniel's Rehabilitation Unit and Alderbourne Rehabilitation Unit. The post holder will provide support to the Band 6 Neuro-Rehab Dietitian, who provide cover to these units and the Stroke Unit.

This is a newly funded post following additional funding by NHSE and NW London ICS for Rapid Access to Acute Rehab (RAAR). The Hillingdon Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in partnership with Imperial College will be delivering 4 of the 8 beds intended for the North West London sector. The funding is intended to reduce the waiting time for patients needing level 1 neuro-rehabilitation beds. The Neurological Rehabilitation service at Hillingdon is based across 2 sites Hillingdon Hospital and Mount Vernon Hospital. The Alderbourne unit and Daniel's unit provide multidisciplinary rehabilitation for patients with neurological and other complex conditions such as TBI, spinal injuries and poly-trauma patients.

An interview date is yet to be confirmed.

Main duties of the job

The clinical case-load includes providing a high quality, evidence-based specialist dietetic service to Alderbourne Rehabilitation Unit at Hillingdon Hospital and the Daniels Rehabilitation Unit at Mount Vernon Hospital. You will be the dietetic lead for neuro-rehabilitation and a valued member of the multidisciplinary team. The post holder will be involved in educating staff on matters relating to nutrition and catering and will supervise student dietitians on placement. The post holder will be expected to manage their caseload independently and will be involved in department wide projects and service improvements.

You will have opportunity to work with a specialist MDT including Consultant Neurologists, Psychologists, MS & PD specialist nurses, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech and language therapists and the Environmental Control team.

The post holder will be expected to travel between sites to provide support where required to our patients. There is a free shuttle bus service and parking options to facilitate cross site working. The Hillingdon Rehabilitation service collaborates closely with the Charing Cross Neuro rehabilitation team. We are part of a network of acute services and level 1 rehabilitation services to ensure a smooth transition of care from neuro-intensive care to the community.
