King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust part of King's Health Partners Academic Health Sciences Centre (AHSC), is one of the UK’s largest and busiest teaching hospitals with a turnover of nearly £1 billion, 1.5 million patient contacts a year and more than 11,500 staff based across 5 main sites in South East London.
The Trust provides a full range of local hospital services across its different sites, and specialist services from King’s College Hospital (KCH) site in Camberwell and the Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH) site in Bromley.
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a driven and dynamic dietitian to join our team of 16 adult acute dietitians at the Denmark Hill site of King’s College Hospital.
This will be an incredibly rewarding post for a dietitian wishing to further develop their skills in nutrition support and multidisciplinary team working. As part of the neurosciences team, you will be responsible for delivering the dietetic input to the neurosurgical inpatient service. Strong skills in inpatient nutrition support are required with experience of managing complex patients, as part of an effective MDT. This role sits within the adult acute dietetic team at King's and there will be an opportunity to also provide cover to the stroke, neurology and regional motor neurone disease service. The post holder will be expected to assist in planning the strategic development of the service and in supporting the junior dietitians and our dietetic assistant.
You will play an integral role in the large, supportive dietetic team at King’s College Hospital. Our dietetics department expects all staff to be involved in the teaching of other healthcare professionals, in line with our mission to provide excellence in clinical care, research and teaching in King’s Health Partners Academic Health Sciences Centre.
We also undertake student training and you would play an active role in student supervision. The department supports flexible working under the King’s Flex system. IMPORTANT
