Are you looking for an exciting new challenge? Are you passionate about making a difference in rehabilitation? If so Circle Rehabilitation will provide the perfect platform to enhance your dietetic career. We are looking for a forward thinking dietitian to join our Bank.

Circle Health is a company that runs hospitals and health services in the UK. We were founded in 2004, and we are different to most healthcare organisations. We build independent hospitals which pioneered five-star hospitality in the UK, and we’re the only organisation running some innovative types of work in the NHS, like our Bedfordshire and Greenwich musculoskeletal contract. In 2017, Circle Rehabilitation was launched at our hospital in Reading. In 2020, the service is expanding to Birmingham. Circle Birmingham Hospital is our first large-scale rehabilitation hospital, located on the former BBC Pebble Mill site in Birmingham.

Circle Rehabilitation are leading the way in innovating rehabilitation in the UK, utilizing best practice from our extensive research into rehabilitation models worldwide. Our rehabilitation facilities are world-class centres of excellence in contemporary settings with leading medical experts, state-of-the-art technology and premium accommodation and catering. Patients are treated by leading MSK and neurological consultants, therapists and nurses from our network of clinicians. We are opening our newly built and innovative 120 bed Rehabilitation Hospital in 2020. It will include provision for private and NHS patients, along with day-case and outpatient rehabilitation facilities with significant investment in new technologies. It will incorporate the luxurious interiors and hospitality for which Circle’s private hospitals are known, along with world class equipment.

We are approaching the concept of rehabilitation differently to other UK facilities. We will be using the WHO International Classification of Functioning and re-thinking the traditional approach to rehabilitation in the UK. The ICF model is widely used in central Europe to inform people’s rehabilitation goals, and views the person as a whole rather than just focusing on their diagnosis.

We are looking for an experienced dietician to help provide specialist dietetic assessment and management of patients that are on a rehabilitation pathway. You will work closely within a specialist multi-disciplinary team to optimise the recovery of patients with complex neurological and MSK presentations. We will give you the opportunity to be part of a holistic and intensive model of rehabilitation whilst ensuring that you are supported in your career development.
