You can achieve more at St Andrew’s Healthcare
An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and compassionate Specialist Speech and Language Therapist to join our supportive SLT team at St Andrew’s Healthcare.
We are committed to improving the quality and experience of patients in our care. We are looking for a Specialist SLT who is interested in developing their knowledge and skills working in mental health and is passionate about advocating for patients with complex mental health and communications needs.
The SLT service at St Andrew’s Healthcare is a centralised team, responsible for supporting some of the most vulnerable people with their communication and dysphagia needs. Our experienced SLT team provide triage, assessment and interventions for communication and dysphagia across a number of specialties including women’s and men’s Mental Health, Neuropsychiatry (e.g. Huntington’s Disease, Dementia, Acquired Brain Injury), Autism Spectrum Disorder, Learning Disability and CAMHS. At our Essex site, we provide patient centred care for both men and women with a personality disorder and/or additional mental health issues in a low secure and locked environment.
This is an exciting opportunity to re-establish an SLT service at our Essex site, enabling the successful candidate to develop their skills in service development, as well as providing specialist evidence-based communication and dysphagia input to meet the needs of a complex patient group and support the multidisciplinary approach to holistic, patient centred care and recovery within a specialty field.
The successful candidate will be the only SLT based in Essex, however will have access to clinical supervision and support from the SLT team in Northampton as well as the wider multidisciplinary team in Essex.
Our vision is to be at the forefront of specialist SLT provisions working within Mental Health. The successful candidate will be pro-active and accountable, and will be involved in ongoing service development projects to help us achieve this goal.
