The services provide safe, therapeutic environments with a focus on helping the young person stabilise, so that hospital treatment is no longer required. There is a diverse educational programme in place onsite at Phoenix School, so that young people can continue their education at the same time as receiving treatment.

  • Deliver and lead a highly specialist clinical service for SLT.
  • Deliver teaching/training to staff and work in close collaboration with the education staff.
  • Participate in the planning, development and evaluation of the Speech and Language Therapy service through embedding the approved pathways of care.
  • Further embed your skills of supporting new service set ups.
  • Directly report in to the Clinical Lead SLT for Mental Health and onsite Hospital Director.
  • A Diploma/Degree in Speech and Language Therapy and Current State Registration with HCPC and membership of professional body (RCSLT).
  • Experience in the field of child and adolescents including Autism Spectrum Disorders and Mental Health Conditions and the associated complexities of the client population.
  • Excellent understanding of core and innovative Speech and Language Therapy skills and current best practice for the client population.
  • Evidence of being a strong team player with a genuine desire to help others.
