Specialist Dietitian – Learning Disabilities and Mental Health
Bradford Nutrition and Dietetic Service
We are excited to announce that we have a vacancy for an HCPC registered specialist band 6 dietitian to join our learning disabilities and mental health team.
You will join a small, close team of dietitians providing specialist services for community learning disabilities and mental health in-patients within Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust (BDCFT). Experience of working within learning disabilities and/or mental health, whilst beneficial, is not an essential requirement as your learning and development needs will be supported.
The successful applicant will work across both specialities, managing an inpatient and outpatient caseload with a wide range of clinical areas including nutrition support, home enteral feeding, weight management and gastrointestinal problems. Our learning disabilities work is delivered as part of a specialist multidisciplinary team of nurses, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and psychologists.
The role involves developing and delivering training and education for staff and service users, collaborative working, project and audit work, policy development, coordinating care across services, supporting our catering team and leading on nutrition for the service.
The team is fully integrated within the BDCFT multi-disciplinary team as well as Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust's (BTHFT) Community dietetic team.
We are a value based, proactive and innovative team looking for a dietitian who shares our values and our commitment to continual learning and development. Please contact us with any enquiries or to learn more about the post.
The post holder will be expected to participate fully in the training of ‘B’ and ‘C’ Placement student dietitians.
Bradford is a vibrant, diverse, multicultural city with a wide range of entertainment and leisure activities available locally. There are good road and rail networks to Leeds and the M62 corridor, and easy access to the Yorkshire Dales and the South Pennines.
