Due to internal promotion, an opportunity has arisen for a Band 6 Physiotherapist to join the multidisciplinary Purbeck Integrated Community Rehabilitation Team, based in Wareham.
The post will involve assessment and treatment of patients in both a community and inpatient setting (Swanage Community Hospital) to prevent avoidable hospital admissions, promote earlier hospital discharges and rehabilitate a wide variety of conditions. The hospital caseloads comprise of a mix of complex medical problems including orthopaedic, neurology, respiratory and elderly care. The post would suit a therapist with a commitment to integrated working, with a passion for promoting rehabilitation, occupation, and function as part of a multidisciplinary rehabilitation pathway. Training can be provided to develop any areas of specific clinical interest. Professional support and access to the Trust’s clinical supervision, in-service training and other developmental opportunities are just some of the benefits of working as part of this team. The other benefits involve working in a beautiful area of Dorset as part of a busy, friendly team, who are co-located with social services and advanced practitioners which offers further scope for training and development. The hours of work are flexible and would include being part of a rota at weekends and bank holidays. The post is for 30 hours, although we would consider applicants who are willing to work part time (minimum 22.5 hours).
Employment in this post requires an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, which the Trust will cover the cost of.
Applicants who subscribe to the DBS update service are able to present a valid DBS certificate instead of requiring a new check.
If you are interested in moving to Dorset we also offer a generous relocation package of up to £10,000. For further details on relocation expenses please email firstname.lastname@example.org
