Derbyshire Healthcare is proud to deliver compassionate care from smoke-free environments.

A focus on recovery
Here at Derbyshire Healthcare, we are committed to working alongside the people who use our services, to help them lead meaningful and satisfying lives.
We believe in compassionate, patient-centred care. Each member of staff has a part to play in supporting the people who use our services. But don't just take our word for it, visit our website to watch our "We are Derbyshire Healthcare" video to see what our staff, service receivers, carers and members have to say about the Trust.



An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced, enthusiastic and motivated dietitian to join the mental health dietetics team in Derbyshire.

Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust can offer you a rewarding career where you will be valued as a key member of our team and every day you will be able to make a difference to the lives of our patients.

You will be responsible for a varied clinical caseload and provide a specialist dietetics service to our inpatient units, working closely with multi-disciplinary teams. In addition to clinical work, your role will include delivering staff training and supporting our hospital catering department.

You will also have the opportunity to contribute towards service development and help shape the delivery of nutritional care within a mental health setting.

The successful applicant will be supported by a small and friendly team who are committed to continued professional development and training opportunities.

We are a placement provider for student dietitians and currently offer A and B placements. The post holder will be actively involved in student training.

The post will be based at the Kingsway Hospital in Derby; however the ability to travel to other locations across the county is required. The service also covers inpatient wards in North Derbyshire and there is the option of the post being part based in Chesterfield.

If you can demonstrate the willingness to learn and undertake a new challenge we look forward to hearing from you! We welcome applications from band 5 dietitians looking to specialise or gain some experience in a growing and forward thinking area of dietetic practice.

The successful candidate will have the required qualifications in nutrition and dietetics and be registered with the HCPC. Experience of working in a mental health setting is desirable but not essential as full training will be provided. Recent clinical dietetic experience is required.

Derbyshire Healthcare offers its staff a package of benefits and rewards and that’s just one reason why we have been highlighted as a best place to work in healthcare by the Health Service Journal (HSJ) and NHS Employers.

There are few careers that are as rewarding as one at Derbyshire Healthcare, or that give you the opportunity to work with such a variety of people of all backgrounds and ages.
