NHS Scotland is committed to encouraging equality and diversity among our workforce and eliminating unlawful discrimination. The aim is for our workforce to be truly representative and for each employee to feel respected and able to give their best. To this end, NHS Scotland welcomes applications from all sections of society.

We welcome applications for this exciting new post: Allied Health Professions Consultant for Stroke and Neurological Rehabilitation.  The post will be hosted in Dundee Health and Social Care Partnership to lead, support, and positively influence Stroke and Neurological rehabilitation for the population of Tayside. This post will have a strong clinical and strategic focus to create a person-centred pathway of care that starts from point of admission to ongoing rehabilitation at a place of home.  The post will work and link with services across Dundee and Angus for patients who have experienced stroke with a Tayside wide focus on patients with neurological injury and disease. The post will link closely to the Stroke MCN.

The post holder will provide strategic Allied Health Professions leadership across the multi-disciplinary team providing expert clinical and professional advice for patients who are requiring specialist rehabilitation for stroke or neurological impact, which will also include patients from the major trauma centre. It is essential that you are currently a Registered Allied Health Professional with the HCPC with demonstrated post graduate qualifications at master’s level or above.

The successful applicant will be a registered Allied Health Professional and have extensive clinical experience, expert knowledge, and skills at a senior level in stroke /neurological injury, disease and or rehabilitation, evidence of positive partnership working, evidence of research abilities and evidence of building and maintaining effective relationships.

Hours of work are: 37 (fulltime) Band: 8b


NHS Scotland is reducing their full time working week from 37.5 to 37 hours per week from 1 April 2024 but with no change in pay.  This reduction will also be applied pro rata for part time staff.  This advert and any subsequent offer/contract of employment therefore reflects the new working hours.  However, as not all service areas will be able to adopt the 37 hour working week immediately from 1 April 2024, you may be required to work up to an additional 30 minutes per week for a temporary period for which you would be paid until the service you are working in changes rosters or working patterns to accommodate the new reduced working week.  If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Recruiting Board.

NHS Tayside is committed to equality and diversity and welcomes applicants from all sections of the community.
