Are you a qualified podiatrist looking for an exciting new role?

We are recruiting podiatrists with an interest in Diabetic foot protection at various levels (from bands 5-7). We are looking for clinical staff who are passionate about the care they give to patients and who want to make a real difference in diabetic foot care.

At NELFT, we have secured significant and long-term Transformation funding and are undertaking an ambitious and exciting programme of co-design, with our partners in the Integrated Care Board (ICB), primary care networks (PCN) and secondary care. Our aim is to improve and enhance our service delivery to meet the challenges that face our diabetic population in Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge through integration and collaboration. We want to improve patient outcomes to help our residents reduce the risk of developing active limb-threatening or life-threatening diabetic foot problem.

In return, we can offer you access to dedicated and personalised training and development in your chosen speciality, flexible working with our blended approach to new ways of working, including rotational opportunities and an unmissable chance to be part of something great that will shape the delivery of these services for years to come.

Main duties of the job

Experienced podiatrists will provide specialist and complex podiatry care for a range of acute and chronic foot pathologies within community settings.
