Healthcare practitioner background, but want something different?
If you are an Allied Healthcare Practitioner or Rehabilitation Practitioner looking for a new challenge, then read on.
We recruit people with Allied Healthcare backgrounds to join our Major Trauma Signposting teams based at NHS Major Trauma Centres. Here you will work alongside senior NHS practitioners as well as patients and their families. Your advice and support will help change a very bad day into a better one for the patients and their families. Although you will be using your clinical skills, the role of Adviser is a non clinical role.
Instead you will be the catalyst that enables seriously injured patients to gain access to early support and rehabilitation that they might not otherwise have had, thanks to your signposting and advice.
If you are interested in working with us we are always keen to hear from rehabilitation professionals who might be able to support the delivery of the MTSP. If you have a strong clinical background and are seeking a more diverse role supporting people with complex injuries, working alongside the NHS, then please do contact us we are always interested in hearing from you as we may have opportunities in the near future.
Current Vacancies: Major Trauma Rehab Adviser – Sports Rehab / Physiotherapist / OT
Please apply via Indeed.com
“It’s been a God send, I didn’t know which way to turn until I spoke with you, now we’ve got the help we need it’s such a relief” – service user feedback.
We seek motivated and assertive healthcare practitioners to work as part of the MTSP.
You will have direct experience of supporting patients, ideally those with complex healthcare needs, to recover and or return to work.
Strong candidates will have a relevant health related degree and at least 3 years post graduation experience in relevant areas such public or sports rehabilitation, rehabilitation, community care, nursing or a case management setting.
The Major Trauma Adviser role is unique and provides you with the opportunity to make a difference to those in most need by improving the coordination of the NHS and the private rehabilitation sector.
We are offering the right candidate a competitive salary, flexible working times, funded CPD and pension contribution. To be successful, you will probably be an Allied Health Professional, an understanding of multi-agency care, supporting patients (and their families) with complex or traumatic injuries and be ready to take a step away from ‘hands on’ patient care.
A background as a personal injury case manager, exercise rehabilitation practitioner, occupational therapist or a physiotherapist would be beneficial, but above all, it is your ability to communicate effectively with senior healthcare practitioners and patients whilst being self motivated and practically minded that really counts.
Although this is a non clinical / hands on role, you will be the catalyst that improves the patient pathway and delivers improved clinical outcomes for patients and the NHS.
