"The patients and families that you meet are having a bad day. Your aim is to make that bad day a little bit better."
We are seeking a motivated healthcare practitioner who are seeking something a little different in their life to join our team at Kings College Hospital, Denmark Hill, London.
You should have direct experience of supporting patients, ideally those with complex healthcare needs, to recover or return to work, and understand the variety of challenges that face patients who have suffered a major trauma.
Strong candidates will have the maturity and professionalism to work within a major trauma environment, combined with a relevant health related degree and at least 4 years post graduation experience in relevant areas such public or private healthcare / rehabilitation or a rehabilitation case management setting.
This career opportunity is unique and provides you with the opportunity to make a difference to those in most need by improving the access to NHS, private sector and charity based support services.
You will be working alongside multidisciplinary NHS clinical teams, advice agencies and personal injury sector to give patients and their families, advice, guidance and the chance of turning a bad day into a slightly better one. You will not be responsible for the treatment or care of patients, but your healthcare background will be essential to working alongside NHS trauma clinicians and patients.

This is an exciting role that will utilise your skills as a healthcare practitioner to assist people but by using your skills to communicate rather than treat patients.
We are seeking candidates who are available on a full or part time basis for this role. Part time would be 3 - 4 days per week. Applicants should state at application their preference for hours of work / availability.
