Calling music therapists in the North East

Children's hospital

There is a great opportunity to work with children at the Great North Children’s Hospital in Newcastle upon Tyne. The hospital and Jessie’s Fund, with additional funding from the Wallace and Grommit Foundation, are looking for a music therapist for 15 hours per week who will be based at the hospital school – The Bridges – and be part of a multi-disciplinary team.

The aim is for the project to start in November 2021 and to continue for 12 months at this stage. The brief can be downloaded here.

Application is by submitting an Expression of Interest (details in the brief) no later than 5 September 2021. Shortlisted music therapists will be invited to make a short presentation at the hospital on 20 September 2021. This would be conducted remotely if necessary due to Covid restrictions.
