 BAND 6 ROTATIONAL

We are looking for an innovative, highly motivated Physiotherapist to join our band 6 Physiotherapy rotation. You will have the opportunity to work in a number of rotations, including Musculoskeletal Outpatients ,Stroke, Surgical, Acute Medical and Orthopaedics.

This is an exciting opportunity for a Physiotherapist who is keen to continue to develop their clinical skills in these areas whilst having the opportunity to expand your non clinical experience in areas such as leadership, service development and audit. You will be supported in this by clinical leads, clinical specialists and dynamic band 7s who are continually working together to improve the patient experience.

The successful applicant must have excellent communication skills, be a good team player and have the ability to work under reasonable pressure within a multi-professional environment. You must also possess the desire to review current practices and the ability to help influence and promote change that will lead to advancement in patient care in line with the Trust’s aims and vision.

Learning and development are very important to our Team.  We have established In-service training programmes tailored to different developmental needs and experience.  External courses are supported if the need has been clearly identified through the Appraisal and Personal Development process.

Through our improvement plan ‘Unlocking our potential’, the Trust has recently reconfigured services to meet the challenge of providing sustainable high quality, modern healthcare for our patients. Our vision and goal of providing outstanding healthcare to our local community is embodied in our PRIDE (Passion, Responsibility, Innovation, Drive, Empowerment) values in everything we do.

It is a particularly exciting time to be a part of the trust as we have been selected as one of only 5 trusts in the country to be mentored by the Virginia Mason Institute in America. Working alongside their clinicians, we are learning practices and processes that have made them one of the safest hospitals in the world.

You will be expected to mentor and supervise junior members of staff and students on placement and be involved in teaching and CPD in each rotation.

Essential criteria for the post are:

  • Degree / Diploma in Physiotherapy with H.C.P.C. Registration with eligibility to work in the UK
