This is an exciting full time, permanent static position in the field of musculoskeletal practice, which will serve as an ideal opportunity for anyone wanting to specialize their skills in this area. Fantastic support will be provided within the friendly local team, which includes Advanced Practitioners and strength specialists. Support will also be accessible from other band 6s already based within the trust. Within this role you will have the opportunity to manage a varied caseload of MSK patients. You can expect personal and professional development on a daily ad hoc basis and through a formal 5 weekly in-service training and clinical supervision programme. The Trust provides a structure offering career mobility, coaching and/or mentoring.

We pride ourselves in providing outstanding care to patients across Herefordshire and Worcestershire. We will provide you with resources to develop and progress a long-term career as well as flexibility, continual professional development as well as a wide range of wellbeing and support.

Main duties of the job

You will be working as part of a Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy team, alongside other Physiotherapists, Advanced Physiotherapy Practitioners, First Contact Practitioners, Physiotherapy assistants and students. You will also need to link in with the wider MDT across various platforms.

You will be required to assess, treat and manage a very varied caseload of patients as we receive referrals from GPs, the acute sector of Worcestershire and self-referrals. This will predominantly include patients with longstanding MSK conditions such as LBP, OA and tendinopathies as well as some acute conditions such as fractures and post-surgery.

We would expect you to contribute to high quality, patient-centered care using evidence-based knowledge and skill. There will also be an opportunity to assist with service development and to teach and supervise other clinicians and students and help to shape the future service delivery and workforce.
