This is an exciting opportunity for a Physiotherapist to join the Neighbourhood teams as an Enhanced Clinical Practitioner to provide maternity leave cover. You will either be able to demonstrate your enhanced clinical knowledge and skills or willing to develop towards this, with an interest in neurological conditions.
