We are seeking an enthusiastic and dynamic Band 6 Speech and Language Therapist to join the Community Stroke Early Supported Discharge Service working across the Cambridge and Huntingdon area.
This is an exciting opportunity.
The successful candidate will spend 12 months with CPFT working in the community Stroke Early supported discharge team and then rotate into Cambridge University Hospital on an honorary contract and spend 12 months working with patients following stroke in the acute setting.
The rotation supports understanding of the patient pathway and is integral to developing professionally.
The Stroke ESD service is a key part of the pathway for those surviving stroke. We support people to leave hospital sooner and provide intense rehabilitation for a six week period, both in the community and inpatient community beds.
This enables patients to achieve their maximum potential.
Our team consists of Neuro Physios, Occupational therapists, Speech and Language Therapists, Psychologists, Neuro Rehabilitation Assistants, Stroke coordinators and Data Co-ordinators.
The team works as an integrated Community Neuro rehab and Stroke ESD Service across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough and are part of the National SSNAP audit.
You will be responsible for managing stroke related communication impairments and dysphagia.
There is an in-house training programme with a supported blended competency package, across acute and community to help you develop within your profession and role.
You will receive regular clinical supervision and support.
This service was developed in conjunction with Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and is part of an exciting new model of care built around the patient in the community.
Post holders will have access to our base in the South Locality and will work in a supported agile manner.
