Our offer to you

We offer our overseas professionals a thorough theoretical and practical induction to the Royal Devon and your clinical area and plenty of support to help you settle in.

This includes a period of supervised practice in your clinical area, supported by a mentor and supplemented with study time if you are taking a test of competence or similar. 

Once registered, you’ll embark on a period of ‘Preceptorship’ following your registration. This will provide hands-on experience under the guidance of an experienced colleague.


Sounds great, what do I need to do?

Gian Jacobs, Community Therapy Team Lead
Gian Jacobs, Community Therapy Team Lead

I lead a community team that consists of; Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Assistant Practitioners and Community Service Workers. We work closely with District Nurses, Community Matrons and Social Care, in providing expert healthcare services to the greater community of Torridge.

I was attracted to this role because it is multi-faceted and demands I be a leader, therapist, negotiator, advocate and critical thinker. It pushes me to be at my best every day. On top of that, the fully committed team of healthcare professionals that I lead each day make me immensely proud to be part of them. They will truly go above and beyond!

I trained in South Africa (undergraduate and postgraduate), where I owned my own practice. The demands of running my own practice taught me valuable lessons that I have brought to the table working for the NHS. I am continuing to update my skills and knowledge with the vast array of learning opportunities offered by the trust.

I believe that Community Health Care will be the focus point in patient management in the not-so-distant future. So if you’re considering a career in it, there is no better time to be involved in shaping the NHS for generations to come. Community rehabilitation is an evolving service that is becoming ever more complex. With time it will become more apparent that there is a need for more investment and focus on community teams as they hold the key to helping ease the demand of acute services. The caseload is becoming ever more complex and acute as we are faced with an aging community and drive to receive health care at home.

Community Rehabilitation is a fast paced, highly rewarding and the sky is truly the limit in the role that we will play in providing health care services, therefore why not be a part of it?
