Band 6
Contract Type
Part Time
The Complex Care at Home Service (CC@H) is looking to recruit an experienced physiotherapist to join the team. Ideally, we are looking for a therapist with experience of working in a community setting with a knowledge of case management. If you are an experienced Band 5 physiotherapist with community experience who would like to develop into this area of practice, we would be able to offer you a development programme leading to a Band 6 role, over a 12-month period,

CC@H provides proactive preventative case management to a mainly frail older cohort of patients, but not exclusively. We accept people into our service living with complex health and care needs living with frailty.

The team consists of matrons who are nurses and allied health professionals, therapists, including registered dietitian, wellbeing coordinators, care navigators from adult social care, frailty housing officer and clinical support and advice from consultant geriatricians.

Main duties of the job

Our team love coming to work in a role that allows them to use a health coaching approach to support a person achieve their goals. We always try to use Health Coaching and Motivational Interviewing skills and utilise outcome measures that evidence their effectiveness in improving a person's health and wellbeing.

The CC@H service is a truly multi-disciplinary team who support people living with complex health conditions and frailty to remain as independent as possible in their choice of residence. The role is rewarding and challenging but never boring. You will be supported by an amazing team of clinicians, health and wellbeing coordinators and social care colleagues.

You will be visiting people in their own homes and supporting them to live well and improve their resilience, with a focus on what matters to them and their concerns.

About us

At Gloucestershire Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust, we are supportive of the people we care for in the community and aim to provide a fully responsive service to everyone who needs it. This is the same approach we take for our employees. We look to value the skills and experiences of those we work with, whether they are service users, carers, families or those looking to work with us.

Gloucestershire Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust is part of the NHS. We treat NHS patients according to NHS principles and standards. The difference is the Trust is accountable to local people, rather than to Government, and so we are able to work closely with our community to develop services in the way that best suits the needs of local people.

Our Staff Survey results showed people at our Trust feel they are engaged, part of a team and work for a compassionate and inclusive organisation.

Our overall scores were better than average in eight of nine themes and level in one - the best overall results for a community, mental health and learning disabilities Trust in the south west and first equal amongst all sector NHS providers within the region too.
