North Bristol NHS Trust (NBT) is a progressive and ambitious provider of health services, delivering for a large local population and with specialist regional services for major trauma, neurosciences, vascular centre, urology, plastics and burns, orthopaedics and renal services. With a turnover of £550m and 9,000 staff, our clinical teams have built a strong reputation for exceptional healthcare. Our acute services moved into a brand new, state of the art, hospital building in May 2014. This new 850 bed facility at the Southmead site offers patients single rooms with en-suite facilities, greatly improving privacy and dignity and reducing the spread of infections.

We have a weight management service that covers tier 3 and tier 4. This service provides a pathway of multi-disciplinary support working closely with psychologists, endocrinologists, surgeons and specialists nurses. The surgical service offers all including Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, Sleeve Gastrectomy, Gastric Band and revision operations. They are performed laparoscopically in our state-of–the-art theatres as part of an enhanced recovery 23 hours stay program.

We are looking to recruit a full time Dietitian to work closely across the wider team with a pro-active approach and flexible working pattern. Previous experience of assessments, individualised dietary plans, running group sessions and patient education is desirable. This role is predominantly based at Southmead Hospital but may require wider travel across the south west.
