Speech and Language Therapist - Stroke - Band 5
Speech and Language Therapist - Band 5 - Stroke Unit
The therapy department is pleased to advertise a fixed term post for a suitably qualified SLT on the well regarded Acute Stroke Unit here in Bath. This post is fixed term to March 2022.
The ASU is a 36 bedded unit which benefits from an onsite thrombolysis service and a seven day TIA service. This is a fantastic opportunity to work within both the supportive Stroke MDT and the RUH therapy department.
The stroke therapists are a valued part of the wider stroke service and have a patient assessment and therapy space adjacent to the Acute Stroke Unit ward. The therapy department has also recently moved into a purpose built building with fabulous facilities such as hydrotherapy. We strive to make improvements and develop best practices related to therapy in stroke care, and work closely with our BSW (Bath Swindon Wiltshire) colleagues to develop strong networks. Interdisciplinary working and shared goal setting allow for a high level of care and support for all patient activities. The post holder will have an interest in working with stroke patients and will have experience in assessment and management of communication impairments, dysphagia experience would be an advantage although not essential.
