In their own words: Health Visitors
“Working with families in the inner city is varied and challenging. I try to empower parents to provide the best possible start in life for their children. It’s a great feeling to work together with parents and see a real improvement in their child’s health and wellbeing.
With some families I have built a long-term, close relationship and I feel privileged to see children and families in their own home. Often parents are more relaxed at home and feel able to talk more openly about any worries.
Today I joined a number of @BrisComHealth colleagues in having their flu vaccination done this morning at Southmead Ho…
Q&A: Sophie Slade, adults’ speech and language therapist
What does your role involve?
We see adults with neurological conditions in their own homes. This means they have damage to the brain, spinal column or nerves, caused by an illness or injury. The speech and language therapists working in the Specialist Community Neurology team see people with difficulties they have as a result of their neurological condition. For example, they may have difficulties with producing clear speech or understanding and using language, or they may have problems with swallowing.

We’re the UK’s largest employee-owned healthcare organisation
Local NHS community health provider Bristol Community Health has been announced as the UK’s largest 100% employee-owned healthcare organisation. The organisation has been ranked by the Employee Ownership Association (EOA) in its new Top 50 report, which ranks UK employee-owned business in size and analyses the sector.
Please be aware of the following changes which will impact all roles advertised by Bristol Community Health
From 1 April 2020, adult community health services in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire will be provided by Sirona care & health. Therefore any adult services posts advertised by Bristol Community Health will be transferred to Sirona after this date, alongside other staff directly involved in the delivery of the contract. Like Bristol Community Health, Sirona care & health are committed to delivering high quality care to patients and service users and will endeavour to transition these services with minimal disruption to patients and staff.
Bristol Community Health has issued notice on its Community Children’s Healthcare Services Contract, which we currently provide under a sub-contract to Sirona care & health. This contract is likely to end on 31 March 2020 and is also likely to transfer to Sirona care & health, although this is not confirmed at this time. This means that if you are appointed to a role within Community Children’s Healthcare Services you are likely to be transferred to the new provider on or around 01 April 2020, alongside other staff directly involved in the delivery of this contract.
Bristol Community Health has issued notice on its Diabetic Eye Screening Service Contract. This contract is in the process of being re-procured and is likely to end on or shortly after 31 March 2020, although this date has not yet been confirmed. If you are appointed to a role within the Diabetic Eye Screening Service you are likely to be transferred to the new provider on or around 01 April 2020, alongside other staff directly involved in the delivery of this contract.
Bristol Community Health has also issued notice on its Offender Health Services Contract. It is likely this contract will end on or shortly after 31 March 2020 although this date is not currently confirmed. A new provider for this contract has yet to be agreed but if you are appointed to a role within Offender Health Services you are likely to be transferred to a new provider on or around 01 April 2020, alongside other staff directly involved in the delivery of this contract.
Bristol Community Health take pride in Making Lives Better for our staff, our patients and our communities and we are committed to supporting the smooth transition of staff and services to new providers.
