Job summary

We are an ambitious Trust constantly innovating to deliver outstanding care to our population. The Trust is passionate about improving the outcomes of stroke survivors across Worcestershire.

The Stroke Quality Improvement for Rehabilitation (SQuIRe) Project has allowed our service to expand the implementation of the National Model for Integrated Community Stroke Services. As part of our service we are looking for an experienced and enthusiastic countywide physiotherapist who shares our drive and vision to join our team on a permanent basis.

The ability to use your initiative, work proactively, demonstrate excellent communication and influencing skills, manage and prioritise your own workload and respond flexibly to the changing demands of the service are essential. We offer a robust induction period and promote opportunities for personal and professional development through 1:1 supervision, peer working, in-service training and education.

Main duties of the job

Within your role you will undertake comprehensive assessments of stroke patients with mild to severe impairments post stroke. This will involve reviewing patients within their own home as well as residential and nursing homes, providing education to the individual as well as families/carers. You will formulate treatment plans using clinical reasoning and utilising your skills to set realistic and measurable, patient-led goals and will attend the weekly MDT to discuss the progress of patients.

You will participate in referral management which will include the triaging of referrals, liaising with other health care professionals within our stroke pathway and surrounding borders.

You will also be involved with supporting patients to undertake their morning routine, support with medications and/or facilitate their meal preparation to promote independence. These sessions are part of a rehabilitation focused approach, and you will be given the appropriate training and support to do this.

About us

We are community hospitals, neighbourhood teams and community health services across Worcestershire and the provider of Mental Health and Learning Disability services across both Herefordshire and Worcestershire. We work in partnership with other organisations to keep our community well at home for as long as possible.

We provide services for people of all ages, across a range of settings, experiencing both physical and/or mental health conditions.

We have an open and supportive culture, recognised by the CQC and other external regulators. We want you to thrive, offering you every opportunity to develop. We will support you; help you fulfil your ambitions with a varied and flexible training programme; and empower you to make positive changes within your team or service. We endeavour to offer an attractive work-life balance, with flexibility in our approach to help you get the most out of your career.

We provide our staff with direct access to a wealth of resources to support their wellbeing, from our Staff Mental Health and Wellbeing Hub, to wellbeing festivals or access to free online exercise classes.

At the core of our values, we are committed to equality, diversity, inclusion and human rights. We take every opportunity to strengthen our approach to equality and diversity in delivering best patient care and the employment of our staff.
