Job summary

This post is based in Aintree Hospital, part of the new merged organisation called Liverpool Foundation Trust which opens up fantastic opportunities to develop links with our colleagues at the Royal Liverpool, Broadgreen and Women's hospital sites. We are based just 15 minutes from Liverpool's bustling city centre and we are a Major Trauma Centre for Cheshire and Merseyside.

You will work closely with the other Band 5 dietitians with excellent support from the Senior Dietitians in our acute team. You will rotate to cover a mixture of specialist and general caseload, including one of the major head and neck oncology centres in England, and a Regional Centre for Major Trauma and Hyperacute Stroke. Other rotational opportunities include Diabetes, Gastroenterology, Cardiology, Respiratory, ventilation and ITU and Surgery, with future opportunities to rotate across hospital sites. This will give you fantastic opportunity to develop exposure to many specialist areas so would also suit someone looking to gain skills in a large teaching hospital.

Your career development and well-being are very important to us and we are a friendly and supportive team that will help you reach your full potential. The trust has a preceptorship programme to support newly qualified Band 5 staff with peer support and allocated preceptors and clinical supervisors.

Main duties of the job

You would be part of a well-respected, highly knowledgeable team of Dietitians, Dietetic Assistants, and Assistant Practitioners with the expert support from a Nutrition Team service. You will work closely as part of an integrated Therapies team.

We train student dietitians and have an active clinical supervision and development programme for Band 5s to develop in your role, with opportunities for service development, teaching and audit. You will work closely with the wider team to identify any quality issues within the service, contribute to local governance meetings and provide education for patients, staff and colleagues.

About us

Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was created on 1 October 2019 following the merger of two adult acute Trusts, Aintree University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust.

The merger provides an opportunity to reconfigure services in a way that provides the best healthcare services to the city and improves the quality of care and health outcomes that patients experience.

The Trust runs Aintree University Hospital, Broadgreen Hospital, Liverpool University Dental Hospital and the Royal Liverpool University Hospital.

It serves a core population of around 630,000 people across Merseyside as well as providing a range of highly specialist services to a catchment area of more than two million people in the North West region and beyond.
