Start Date:

Job Ref:

This is an exciting opportunity to work within the supported environment of the Adult SLT Team. The post will be based at Russells Hall Hospital. It will involve delivering specialist assessment, treatment and management for voice outpatients and inpatients with communication and/or swallowing difficulties on the acute wards. The postholder will undertake audits and reviews and will be actively involved in service developments.

We have a joint SLT/ENT Voice Clinic which takes place on a monthly basis. Shadowing opportunities at this clinic can be facilitated. We have access to F.E.E.S. and in addition we run a weekly videofluoroscopy clinic which we have developed in conjunction with RCSLT guidelines/competencies and which we deliver collaboratively with Radiographers.

The service offers protected CPD opportunities within team meetings (eg case discussions, journal reviews, etc) and each team across the service undertakes a critically appraised topic relating to their clinical area which is presented annually thereby further developing learning opportunities and ensuring current evidence based practice is embedded in the treatment and management of all our clients.

We offer a structured support system including an informal ‘buddy system’ and informal meetings with team managers and also clinical supervision as well as appraisals. There is also opportunity to shadow specialist colleagues/undertake joint visits. All are actively encouraged.

The Trust supports high quality patient centred research and as a service we are keen to encourage active participation in this process, accessing and supporting Masters studies/grants and other funding streams as appropriate.

The Trust’s vision and values – care, respect and responsibility are reflected in the ethos of the Adult SLT Service as we continually strive to deliver the best for our patients and support and develop our staff. We look forward to adding to our fabulous Team!
