Contract Type
Full Time
Are you a physiotherapist who has recently qualified, or an experienced physiotherapist looking for a new challenge?

Are you looking for a wide variety of rotations within supportive and welcoming teams?

Do you take a patient-centred, holistic approach to care?

We believe that as a team:

We enable recovery

We empower quality of life

We bring independence and dignity to our patients

If you are passionate about change, new technologies and seek the freedom to lead change then you may be interested in learning more about working with us at Sandwell and West Birmingham.

We are looking to extend our current cohort of flexible and innovative Band 5 Rotational Physiotherapists ahead of our move to the new acute Midland Metropolitan University Hospital, opening in 2024.

We have exciting opportunities for you to join an established integrated 7- day therapy service working across all aspects of acute and community care where delivery of a high quality service and development of our staff are high priorities. We have an established education programme and strong peer support throughout the Trust.

Our 5 monthly rotation programme is delivered in a variety of settings including emergency departments, acute and community beds and clinics, and in patients' own homes.

We welcome applications from qualified physiotherapists and also at this time student physiotherapists due to qualify later in 2024.

Main duties of the job

Our current Band 5 rotational programme includes:
  • Musculoskeletal services
  • Community services including Care Homes, Admission Avoidance, Home Based Intermediate Care, Community Respiratory and Long Term Condition Management teams
  • Frailty Intervention Team
  • Emergency & acute medicine
  • Stroke and neurology/rehab
  • Acute Paediatrics
  • Critical care & surgery
  • Trauma & orthopaedics
  • Inpatient rehabilitation services

This is an exciting period for the Trust as we move towards the opening of our new acute hospital site, the Midland Metropolitan University Hospital, later in 2024 in which many of these rotations will be based.

The successful candidates will be effective communicators with broad clinical experience, who are able to demonstrate resilience, a caring approach and a commitment to delivering the best possible care.
