Lead Nurse Rehabilitation

Location: Birmingham

Salary: 42,000-46,331

Are you passionate about providing excellent nurse leadership in rehabilitation? We have put nurses at the forefront of rehabilitation as we believe that “every interaction is a rehabilitation opportunity”.

Circle Health is a company that runs hospitals and health services in the UK. We were founded in 2004, and we are different to most healthcare organisations we build independent hospitals which pioneered five-star hospitality in the UK, and we’re the only organisation running some innovative types of work in the NHS, like our Bedfordshire and Greenwich musculoskeletal contract. In 2017, Circle Rehabilitation was launched at our hospital in Reading. In 2020, the service is expanding to Birmingham. Circle Birmingham Hospital is our first large-scale rehabilitation hospital, which will be co-located with an elective private hospital, on the former BBC Pebble Mill site in Birmingham.

Our rehabilitation facilities are world-class centres of excellence in contemporary settings with leading medical experts, state-of-the-art technology and premium accommodation and catering. Patients are treated by leading MSK and neurological consultants, therapists and nurses from our network of clinicians. We are opening our newly built and innovative 120 bed Rehabilitation Hospital attached to the 40 bed Circle Birmingham elective hospital in the 1st quarter of 2020. It will include provision for private and NHS patients, along with day-case and outpatient rehabilitation facilities with significant investment in new technologies. It will incorporate the luxurious interiors and hospitality for which Circle’s private hospitals are known, along with world class equipment.

Circle Rehabilitation believes that great care can change everything. We want to deliver brilliant care and this can only be done with the support of an excellent nursing team. If you share our passion for people and the dedication to excel, and you are an inspirational leader, we’d love to hear from you.
