Job Title Senior Physiotherapist, Band 6
Base George Moore Community Clinic Cotswold ICT’s
Hours per week 18.75 hours per week
An exciting opportunity has emerged for an individual to join our Integrated Community Team (ICT) working in the North Cotswolds.
The ICTs consist of Community Nursing, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy and Reablement who work closely with our co-located Adult Social Care colleagues.
We work in partnership with GPs, community hospitals, mental health services and voluntary organisations to enable people to live as independently as possible at home.
The ethos of the team is a Reablement, person-led approach to recovery and self-management, to ensure we offer care close to home, thus avoiding unnecessary admissions to bed-based services.
One of our team strengths is that we strive to work together, and constantly improve. If you would like to see a little more about how our team have adapted and made a difference during the current COVID pandemic, please see our You Tube clip.
We are an active player in the development of the local Primary Care Network entering an exciting time as we work with our partners to develop local place based models of care in our newly merged Organisation with the local Mental Health and Learning Disability Trust, formerly 2Gether NHS Foundation Trust.
This is a multifaceted role with a varied caseload incorporating both triage and urgent response of patients referred via the referral centre, and patients from the community waiting list.
The post holder will also be responsible for the delegation of work to other members of the physiotherapy team within the ICT, as well as holding a small caseload.
This is an ideal opportunity for a Band 5 therapist wanting a development opportunity or a Band 6 looking for a new challenge who would like to work in new ways across one of the rural communities of Gloucestershire.
The successful candidate will be able to lead the physiotherapy staff by demonstrating an organised and enthusiastic approach to integrated ways of working including multidisciplinary team working.
They will work alongside other Band 6 staff in support of the Team Managers to develop new ways of working to better meet the needs of the population of the localities.
There will also be opportunities to work with professional leads, clinical specialists, and musculoskeletal advanced practitioners.
If you would like to work for an Organisation that values its staff, aims to deliver the best care, offering compassion to all patients, their carers and families, and you can demonstrate this to us, we would like to hear from you!
The qualification, training & experience requirements for the role are underlined in the Job Description / Person Specification.
The Trust aims to recruit and retain the best possible staff who, through the application of their skills, qualification and experience, will make a positive contribution to our business of providing quality health care services.
It is the Trust’s view that the costs associated with moving house in order to take up a post with us should not restrict our ability to recruit the excellent people we need, therefore we support staff to relocate with our relocation policy.
A valid UK driving licence plus the use of own transport for business purposes is essential. For qualifying staff the Trust has a Lease Car Scheme in place and also offers a popular Salary Sacrifice Car Scheme with our partner Tusker.
