Specialist Rehabilitation Engineer
We have an exciting opportunity for a Rehabilitation Engineer to join our team based at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust (LTHT). The Rehabilitation Engineering team provides technical support and scientific input for the Specialist Rehabilitation Services at LTHT, including wheelchairs, seating, prosthetics and orthotics.
This is a 0.8wte post providing an opportunity to work directly with patients in the wheelchair service.
The post holder will require a commitment to service delivery and to collaborative working within multi-disciplinary teams to select the wheelchair and seating that will achieve the best mobility, support and comfort for people with long term disabilities. They may design, assemble or adjust the seating and wheelchair to meet individual needs. Other rehabilitation engineering duties covered by the post may include support in the orthotics and prosthetics service.
The post holder could be expected to travel and cover other regional services. There will also be scope for the post holder to participate in a range of professional duties including training others, quality assurance, clinical evaluation and audit.
We are ideally looking for an experienced rehabilitation engineer, and the post holder is required to be registered as a clinical technologist (or be eligible for registration) and a full driving license is essential.
Training can be provided, and consideration will be given to suitable candidates without relevant experience/registration at a lower band. If you would like to discuss this post further, please email Dr Kitty Tang: email@example.com
