St. George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is the regional specialist care provider for south west London, Surrey and beyond. The trust provides a high quality, comprehensive range of health services from leading edge tertiary and trauma care to community services.

With national and regional referrals added to our local 3.5m catchment, we serve a population of around 5m.

Co-located with St George’s, University of London and with both organisations now in a formal strategic alliance with King’s Health Partners, the trust delivers with its partners high quality research and education both of which contribute to the healthcare provision of tomorrow.

Acute and tertiary health services are delivered from over 1,000 beds across two sites, by around 8,000 staff.

St. George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is a major acute hospital that offers very specialist care for complex injuries and illnesses, including trauma, neurology, cardiac care, renal transplantation, cancer care and stroke. It has a helipad which opened in spring 2014 and the work of its emergency department can currently be seen on Channel 4’s ‘24 Hours in A&E’ programme. The hospital also provides all the usual care you would expect from a local NHS district general hospital.

We also provide services at Queen Mary’s Hospital in Roehampton. These include outpatient rapid diagnostic and treatment facilities, a minor injuries unit, limb fitting services and 70 elderly, intermediate care and rehabilitation beds.

As well as hospital services, we provide a wide variety of specialist, maternity and community services to children, adults, older people and people with learning disabilities. These services are provided from St John’s Therapy Centre, 11 health centres and clinics, schools, nursing homes and people’s own homes. The trust also manages the healthcare service at HMP Wandsworth.


 

An exciting opportunity has arisen for someone who enjoys working with people, in particular in the medical field. We are looking for an enthusiastic, motivated individual with excellent organisational and interpersonal skills to work within the Audiology Department.

The Department of Audiology and Audiological Medicine at St. George's Hospital provides a diagnostic and rehabilitative audio-vestibular service to people of all ages encountering problems with hearing, balance and tinnitus. The Department consists of a team of 21 audiologist, 5 audiovestibular physicians and administration support.

This role is unique in the sense that you will have our own clinical caseload but also do office administration, supporting the Audiology Coordinator. The split between clinical work involving direct patient contact and office administration will be about 50-50. A typical day may be you doing your own adult hearing aid repair clinic, telephone hearing aid reviews or presenting a masterclass to patients on the use of their hearing aids in the morning, followed by manning the office telephone in the afternoon with associated office administration. .

You will receive training where required to enable you to provide a high quality service.

The post holder will be based in the St George’s Hospital Suite at Trevelyan House Surgery, which is in close proximity to St George’s Hospital, but will also be required to work in St George’s Hospital with possible occasional visits to satellite clinics.

The ideal candidate will be professional, friendly and approachable, be able to multi-task and work flexiblty, be keen to learn new skills and work well in a team.

Only those applicants who demonstrate clearly how they meet our person specification will be shortlisted for interview.
