We are seeking an enthusiastic and dynamic Band 5 Speech and Language Therapist to join the Community Stroke Early Supported Discharge Service working across the Cambridge and Huntingdon area.

This 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, OTs, SLTs, 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. This is an ideal position for someone with some experience but newly qualified Therapists are welcome to apply.

There is an in-house training programme with a supported blended competency package to help you develop within your profession and role. You will receive regular clinical supervision and support.

Post holders will have access to our base in the North Locality and will work in a supported agile manner.
