Bromley Healthcare is a community interest company providing a wide range of services including community nursing services such as district nursing, health visiting to specialist nurses, as well as therapy services for children, young people and adults. Being born from NHS Bromley’s community provider unit we have been providing community services to the people of Bromley for many years and we have a wealth of experience.

Bromley Healthcare is a great place to work. The unique way we deliver services and offer everyone who works here a voice, means that your career with us will be rewarding. Social Enterprises are a fairly new and exciting way to deliver healthcare, offering many of the traditional advantages of the NHS (such as excellent training and development) with the freedom for innovation by being able to reinvest any surpluses we make into the community.

Priority consideration will be given to Bromley Healthcare staff formally identified as being at risk.

Because our Nurses, therapists and support staff co-own Bromley Healthcare CIC and have a real say in how our services are run, this has created a greater sense of ownership, responsibility & motivation among our staff which in turn creates better quality for our patients & families.

 If you are keen to work for a dynamic, forward thinking but different type of NHS employer then Bromley Healthcare could be for you!

We are currently looking for a Band 6 Community Podiatrist.

This is an opportunity to join a committed, progressive team who work in a challenging and motivating environment, the successful candidates will have a community focused clinical caseload with a responsibility to provide foot health care and advice to patients with “at risk” feet.

We are looking for HCPC Registered Podiatrists with post graduate experience with a high degree of motivation and clinical skills, you will need a flexible approach to service provision with the ability to work as part of a team as well as individually. The successful candidate will be required to have excellent diagnostic and clinical skills to deliver a range of podiatry treatments including wound care, at risk and biomechanical interventions for patients in Bromley.

We have recently reassessed our podiatry caseload to target our services on patients who are medically at risk and who have a high podiatric need, consequently our patients tend to be complex with a variety of needs. We would therefore expect you to be able to confidently reassess and discharge where appropriate.

Although based in a clinical setting, the role is across the Bromley Healthcare area with a home visit case load. Due to the nature of the role it is essential that applicants are able to travel independently across the locality and have access to a suitable vehicle for business purposes.

The post holder will be up to date with current best practice and demonstrate Bromley Healthcare values in their day to day role working as part of a team. We value health promotion through patient empowerment and education, therefore we require podiatrists who have excellent communication and assessment skills.
We encourage team members to take part in various CPD activities including clinical supervision, in-house training during department meetings in addition to external training sessions.

Registration with the Health professions council is essential.
