Band 7
Contract Type
Part Time
This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced therapist who wishes to expand and develop skills in the leadership of a team of Paediatric Physiotherapists in Northern Lincolnshire (Grimsby and Scunthorpe). You will also be responsible for the management of a specialist caseload and provision of Clinical Expert support for Physiotherapy across our two main sites (Grimsby and Scunthorpe). We are looking for a self-motivated, friendly and enthusiastic Physiotherapist to join our established Children's Therapy Team in Northern Lincolnshire. You will be based in Diana Princess of Wales Hospital, Grimsby but expected to work cross site as required.

We are a small but dynamic multi professional team comprised of Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Dietetics and Speech and Language Therapy. The teams are based in Scunthorpe (New Beacon House) and on the hospital site at Grimsby.

We are committed to offering a professionally led service, support from a friendly team, and opportunities for ongoing professional development, effective supervision as well as access to the support of administrative staff and an electronic patient record. Internal and external courses will be supported through an annual personal appraisal scheme

Main duties of the job

As part of this role you will be expected to co-lead a small team of Physiotherapists and non-registered staff (as this post forms part of a job share). This will include managing performance, service development, audit and ensuring the smooth day to day running of the service. You will also work alongside other Band 7 Team Leads across our wider Children's Therapy team to support the development of the service as a whole. You will also work closely with our Team Lead for Occupational Therapy to coordinate and provide cohesive leadership. This post gives a great opportunity for you to innovate, develop and shape the service.

Your job clinically will also be to provide expert clinical advice/ second opinions, training and steering cross site for clinical aspects of paediatric physiotherapy, including development of clinical guidelines, clinical pathways and expert training. You will manage a specialist caseload, including (but not limited to) children with neurological, neuromuscular, congenital, Orthopaedic and musculoskeletal conditions. There is scope for you to identify possible areas of Clinical Specialism which you might be interested in. You will work closely with the established team and that of other Health, Education and Social care practitioners with a range of community, inpatient and outpatient settings.
