The NHS has transformed the health and wellbeing of our country in its 70-year history. Its future relies on its people, and their dedication in looking after our health.
From diagnosis to recovery, each patient journey is a result of collaboration from NHS England staff – from IT, digital and support professionals, allied health professionals such as orthotists and prosthetists to nurses and doctors, everyone who works in the NHS has a role to play in supporting patients.
As part of the “We are the NHS” campaign, the first recruitment drive for the NHS in over a decade, on Thursday 31st January, the campaign will focus on illustrating the stimulating and rewarding roles available in orthotics and prosthetics within the NHS.
The campaign supports commitments made in the NHS Long Term Plan to recruit more people into the workforce and ensure its staff have rewarding jobs and work in a positive culture, with opportunities to develop their skills and use state of the art equipment.
Orthotists and prosthetists working in the NHS make a difference to the lives of a wide range of patients, from cerebral palsy and stroke sufferers, to amputees. The campaign aims to inspire more people to consider a role as a prosthetist and orthotist in the NHS.
NHS staff touch the lives of the 1.4 million patients treated in England every 24 hours. Regardless of their specific role, all staff contribute to caring for each and every one of these patients with care and compassion when it matters most.
The NHS has grown to become the single biggest employer in the UK, with 1.3 million workers, making it the fifth-largest workforce in the world.
