You will be able follow the patient’s journey from when they come to us, throughout their care, until they hopefully get to go home, which is a rewarding experience for all involved. 

This is an exciting time for us, as we look to start taking acute patients and escalating their care in the community. This is an opportunity for you to work in a rehabilitation environment with an amazing team, whilst upskilling in areas such as end of life care and rehabilitation.

We will support your transferrable clinical skills with training packages tailored to your needs. We also offer a great preceptorship programme for those who are newly qualified.
