Are you an enthusiastic and flexible dietitian?

We are looking for a dietitian specialising in diabetes to join our progressive community team.

You'll be managing your own caseload of community patients, working mostly in clinic outpatient, but you'll also have some home visits and remote working thrown in also!

This is an exceptional opportunity to gain broad clinical experience both within the specialist diabetes service and the wider community dietetic team, providing an excellent foundation to develop your future professional career.

A driving licence and access to your own vehicle is essential for this role.

Main duties of the job

You will provide a dietetic service to patients referred to the Diabetes Intermediate Care Team. Service delivery will be via outpatient clinics, Structured Group Education as well as domicilliary visits as required. Providing training other health care providers may also be required according to demand and identified need.

You will also have a caseload of patients with a range of long-term conditions referred to the Service by GP's, Consultants, Community Nurses, AHP's and community hospitals as part of the general community clinic service. Domiciliary visits may also be required.

About us

As an organisation, the NHS offers a wide range of benefits including flexible working, pension contributions, market leading annual leave allowance, career progression and regular conversations, not to mention our Blue Light Card and NHS exclusive discounts.

The benefits of working in Somerset include the idyllic countryside, with our areas of outstanding beauty and stunning coastlines. You will get to enjoy these perks whilst still only being a stone's throw away from bustling city centres like Bristol, Bath and Exeter whilst still only being two hours away from London. We offer a competitive relocation package to support you with the move.

There are excellent educational facilities in the area and, when compared to other regions, house prices are reasonable. You will experience the best of both in Somerset, the countryside and the cosmopolitan - there is truly something for everyone!
