Band 6 Speech & Language Therapist

Job Reference: 074-2077-B3430

CSH Surrey
Speech & Language Therapy
Woking Hospital, Woking, Surrey
£26,565 - £35,577 + HCAS

CSH Surrey is an NHS community provider and part of the NHS family.

But we’re not your usual NHS employer!

That’s because CSH is actually a co-owned organisation. This means that our 1600 staff, although still on NHS Agenda for Change, Terms & Conditions and members of the NHS pension scheme, actually ‘own’ CSH.

So what difference does this make? Because our nurses, therapists and support staff own CSH Surrey, they have a real say in how our services are run. They are also given the freedom and personal responsibility to change and improve their services.

This has created a greater sense of pride, commitment and motivation among our staff, which means better quality and more innovative care for our patients and families.

Being employee-owned has also helped us to genuinely put patient and client care at the heart of what we do – because when you own something, you really do care more passionately about it! We believe our FFT results are testament to the high quality of care we provide, with our services regularly achieving 90-100%.

CSH Surrey is also a not-for-profit social enterprise. This means we combine the best of both worlds - the social ethos of the NHS with the independence, innovation, drive and ‘can do’ attitude of a business. Importantly to our staff, we reinvest any surplus back into services and to support communities through our Community Fund.

So, if you’re looking for a different type of NHS employer that really does put patient/client care first, and you want to work alongside motivated, passionate and ‘can do’ colleagues who have a real say in how their services are run, come and work for CSH!w

Due to new investment in our service we have a great opportunity for a band 6 Speech & Language Therapist to join our friendly and supportive team based in Woking Community Hospital. We are looking for a Speech and Language Therapist with the required clinical knowledge and skills to treat adults with acquired communication and swallowing difficulties resulting from a wide range of neurological conditions including stroke, motor neurone disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis and dementia.

The North West Surrey Adult SLT team provide clinical assessment, diagnosis and therapeutic input that is individually tailored to each client to help them reach their goals, as well as providing essential support to carers and families and working as a key part of our MDTs. We have excellent working relationships with local acute and community services and have a commitment to delivering high quality care to our patients. This is promoted via regular peer support, clinical supervision, training courses, CPD sessions and service development projects.

Successful candidates will be able to demonstrate excellent clinical knowledge and be highly motivated to provide great care, with a strong commitment to continually updating knowledge and skills. You will be joining a small team of highly skilled Speech & Language Therapists, working with adults across the North West Surrey area. The team is based at Woking Community Hospital and works in Woking and Walton Community Hospitals and domiciliary settings. As this is a community service that covers a large geographical area, being a driver is essential. Dysphagia competence is an essential requirement and ideally you will have at least 18 months post graduate experience. Flexible working arrangements and part-time hours may be considered.

If you would like to discuss this post or arrange an informal visit please contact Nancy Coe, Speech and Language Therapy Team Lead on 01483 846 437.

Please note this post may close earlier than the stated closing date if sufficient applications are received, therefore if interested please submit your application for consideration as soon as possible.

Our preferred method of contact is by email. Please check your email regularly following the closing date.
