Full Time
Specialist Paediatric Dietitian Band 5/6

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic, hardworking dietitian with an interest in Paediatrics to join the United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust Paediatric Team. We are a friendly and supportive trust-wide team, providing a comprehensive Paediatric dietetic service. An interest in paediatric dietetics and a desire to undertake relevant post-registration training is essential. We will value your ability to use your initiative and you will have a flexible approach, excellent communication and time management skills and the ability to work independently, liaising effectively with a wide range of staff and patients and the public. Car driver and access to transport is helpful, though not essential.

Main duties of the job

Along with other members of the team, you would provide dietetic advice to paediatric inpatients and outpatients within the hospital and community settings. The caseload across the Trust is a varied and interesting one, covering gastroenterology, allergy, cystic fibrosis, diabetes, home enteral nutrition and nutrition support often working as part of multidisciplinary teams. The service is continually developing to match service needs and your contribution and ideas as to how an excellent service can be provided, would be encouraged. The post-holder will also have the opportunity to conduct audits and research, provide training to patients, carers and other community staff, and contribute to service development.

Most of the work for this post would be carried out in and around the Lincoln area although there may be some duties in the wider Lincolnshire community and at Grantham and Boston.

The department provides clinical placements for A, B and C dietetic students. Regular CPD is provided and there are opportunities for further training and development.
