King’s is a major Teaching Hospital with a well-established national and international reputation for clinical excellence, innovation and achievement. 2013-14 was a year of significant workforce growth and organisational change as King’s acquired new sites, services and people from Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH), Orpington Hospital, and associated services in South East London.

This post will be based in Orpington Neurosciences Centre, the 2b Neuro-rehabilitation Unit, the Frank Cooksey Rehabilitation Unit and Neurosurgery Step-Down Unit. The new 2b Neuro-Rehabilitation Unit was recently opened in Orpington Hospital in July 2016.

The ward currently has 20 inpatient beds, 14 beds are secured for 2b Neurological Care and 6 further beds for Neurosurgery Step Down patients.
The Frank Cooksey Rehabilitation Unit provides specialist neurological rehabilitation in a 15 bedded unit. It was recently relocated to a dedicated fully refurbished ward in Orpington Hospital. In this unit complex physical and cognitive rehabilitation is provided to patients who suffered a stroke, traumatic brain injury, polyneuropathy, myopathy, spinal cord injury, or relapse of progressive neurological disease.
Within this role, the successful applicant will work collaboratively as part of multi-disciplinary teams led by a Consultant in Rehabilitation Medicine, the Consultant Therapist and a Consultant Neurologist to support the day to day running of the Neuro-Rehabilitation 2B and Step-Down unit.
