Programme Director (Dental Hygiene & Therapy)

King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is one of the UK’s largest and busiest teaching hospitals with over 1.5 million patient contacts a year and more than 13,000 staff based across five main sites in South East London and Kent.

The Trust provides a full range of local hospital services across its different sites, and specialist services from King’s College Hospital (KCH) site in Camberwell and the Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH) site in Bromley, Orpington Hospital, and some services at Beckenham Beacon and Queen Mary’s Sidcup.

The Trust is recognised internationally for its work in liver disease and transplantation, neurosciences, cardiac, haemato-oncology, fetal medicine, stroke, major trauma, and Emergency Department.

King’s is a key partner in one of London's foremost Academic Health Science Centres, King's Health Partners (KHP). KHP is one of only six Department of Health-designated AHSCs in England. It brings together a world-leading research-led university – King’s College London – and three successful NHS Foundation Trusts: King’s College Hospital, Guy’s and St Thomas’, and South London and Maudsley.

This is an exciting opportunity to be a part of our dedicated workforce and join one of the largest and most successful Foundation Trusts in the UK with an international reputation for innovation and the desire to make a difference.

Applications are invited for a Programme Director to lead and deliver a new BSc Programme for Dental Hygiene & Therapy (DHT) which is being delivered across KHP. The successful candidate will have established leadership and team-working qualities and will be expected to play an active role in the provision and delivery of clinical education for students and of healthcare for patients.

The DHT programme operates over multiple sites including King’s (Denmark Hill), Norwood Hall Dental Clinic (Lambeth) and King’s College London (London Bridge Campus).The successful candidate will be expected to lead clinical teaching and clinical services associated with the DHT Programme across all sites and will work closely with King’s College London, the programme awarding body.

At this stage the DHT programme consists of 30 new trainees p.a. on a 3 year full time degree programme leading to registration with the General Dental Council. The Programme Director is supported by a small team of Clinical Tutors and other support staff.

The successful candidate will be expected to be skilled and confident enough to cover the whole range of dental hygiene and dental therapy clinical procedures.
