Visiting Professional Programme – Therapies
The Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust Therapies Directorate provides a fully comprehensive range of therapy services across the Guy’s and St Thomas’ hospital sites including Evelina Children’s Hospital, and in a number of outpatient community clinics and GP practices. Our Therapies Directorate is one of the largest in the United Kingdom employing over 400 staff across five clinical therapy departments; foot health, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, psychology and speech and language therapy.
All five of our clinical therapy departments have specialised visiting professional programmes available, to which international professionals may apply. Each of these programmes offer visiting professionals exclusive access to our services and their renowned faculty. Visitors may apply to the relevant department for the opportunity to observe and work alongside our experts as a way to gain insight into our Trust and into the role that therapies services play within the NHS, and to extend their own personal expertise. Each programme has been designed by the relevant clinical lead to ensure that all visitors’ learning expectations are met and that visitors of all experience levels have the opportunity to learn new skills that can be transferred back to their home country.
The available departments are:
- Foot Health
- Occupational Therapy
- Speech and Language Therapy
