We have an exciting opportunity for a Physiotherapist to join Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership Trust, providing care and support to the early years (0-5) and neonatal population.

This is a new and innovative role with exposure to both community and acute sector working, supported by an established paediatric community team and the new LMNS AHP neonatal team consisting of physiotherapists, occupational therapists, dietitians and speech and language therapists.

You'll have the opportunity to work in a variety of different settings, including people's homes, nurseries, schools and two days in a Neonatal unit.
