Job Description

We are Sirona care & health, a Community Interest Company committed to providing integrated health and social care services to people across Bath & North East Somerset and South Gloucestershire. For us, it’s about the personal approach; we take pride in what we do and deliver the high standard of care that we’d expect for ourselves and our families.

In return we offer an excellent range of benefits including generous holiday entitlement, paid enhancements for bank holiday/night working (where applicable), a contributory pension scheme (including, for some roles, the NHS and Local Government pension schemes), a planned induction program, extensive learning and development opportunities, health and wellbeing programmes, flexible working patterns, staff excellence awards, childcare vouchers, in-house physiotherapy support and more!

An exciting opportunity has arisen to be part of a newly commissioned Community Respiratory Team in South Gloucestershire working in partnership with North Bristol Trust . The service provides specialist integrated pathways for people with COPD and providing assessment and review for people who have been prescribed oxygen. This new initiative will enable service users to be supported at home and in the local community thus preventing unnecessary hospital visits and admissions.

We are looking for a friendly, helpful and motivated person, with a keen interest in the rehabilitation of patients for which continued professional development will be actively encouraged. Excellent inter-personal skills, patient centered approach and effective team work are essential.

The successful candidate will be expected to manage their own caseload of patients and assist in delivering weekly pulmonary rehabilitation groups across South Gloucestershire. The successful candidate will be expected to work flexibly across the locality. This post is a permanent appointment for 225/30 hours per week. The service is currently required to work 800 – 1700 over 5 days out of seven days per week. The team is based at Leap Valley Medical Centre, Downend, Bristol with other Sirona community services. These newly built premises offer office and clinic space as well as onsite parking. The majority of visits will take place in the community and staff will be provided with iPads to support remote working.

The appointed candidate must successfully undertake a pre-employment medical check and have disclosure details available prior to starting work. Please ensure you meet all of the essential criteria as described in the job portfolio prior to applying as candidates who do not meet all criteria will not be shortlisted.

The interview process will consist of both practical exercise demonstrated to the interview panel and an individual interview.

The pay scale is between £20,438-£23,972 pro rata depending on experience and NHS pensions honored and available.
