Locum Consultant in Rehabilitation
Rehabilitation in the East Midlands is undergoing a transformation process. Join the service at an exciting time to support, shape and drive service improvements and new ways of working in this important field of medicine.
The recently agreed rehabilitation strategy sets out an ambition alongside the development in the East Midlands region of the National rehabilitation Centre - A unique opportunity for a consultant to lead rehabilitation medicine in a new and exciting direction.
The opportunity at NUH is to be part of this journey. The NRC programme is 18 months into a 3 year programme to redesign services, widen access for non Neuro patients and working with HEE to develop a core skills set around rehabilitation. In combination with orthopaedic and sports and exercise medicine specialties, the service delivery model will change, enabling AHP's advanced practice roles to complement that of the medical input. National opportunity also exists to lead the education, training and research programmes.
More locally at NUH immediately, there is a drive to create a wider rehabilitation service for our patient population. Once again this model will be a step towards that delivered at NRC, and an exciting opportunity for medical leadership.
