Are you interested in working within an upbeat, enthusiastic and supportive team of Speech and Language Therapists and Assistants in which to further develop your skills and contribute to ongoing service development? If so then working for Children and Family Health Surrey (CFHS) may be for you.

Children and Family Health Surrey is made up of three partnering organisations; CSH Surrey,First Community Health and Care, and Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. Together, we provide one Surrey-wide community health service for children and young people from 0 to 19 years of age (up to 25 years for young adults with additional needs) and their families and carers.

 

You will be based either inBourne Hall Clinic in Ewell (Surrey) and surrounding areas or based in and around Ashford Clinic (Surrey). You will work as a member of our Early Years Team. This is a challenging and varied role. Day to day you will be conducting assessments, writing reports and running therapy sessions (groups or individual) for a varied population of 0-5 year olds including children with Language disorders and delays, Social Communication Disorders, Speech difficulties, stammering, Down Syndrome, general delay and much more. You may work form a variety of settings (e.g. Health centres, Children’s Centres, nurseries and patient’s homes). As the role involves travelling from one clinic/nursery/home to another the role would best suit a car driver.

As part of your ‘developing specialist’ role you may also be involved in:

  • Supporting and line-managing less experienced members of the team

  • Organising and co-ordinating a small team within your local area

  • Conducting Multi-disciplinary assessments

  • Writing recommendations for EHCPs

  • Delivering training to parents, HVs or Nurseries

  • Running drop-in sessions

  • Working with specialist caseloads (aged 0-19) such aschildren with an acquired brain injury, CP, basic dysphagia or voice (based on your experience and the needs of the service).

We firmly believe that the best services for the children we serve come out of effectively training and supporting our Therapists. As such you will be supported by the following:

  • Regular supervision with your line manager (a more senior Speech and Language Therapist)
  • A rolling programme of in-house training to update your knowledge and skills throughout the year (including ‘ASD diagnosis’, ‘Stammering’, ‘Using Parent Child Interaction’, ‘Writing EHCPs’, ‘Attention Autism’, to name but a few).
  • Working as part of a team

We would consider applications from both full time and part time applicants.
