12 Month Contract
An exciting opportunity has arisen within Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, for a dynamic and enthusiastic Band 6 Physiotherapist to join our Intermediate Care team supporting the residents of Blackpool both in our in-patient unit, at the Assessment & Rehabilitation Centre (ARC) and also within their own homes as part of the reablement service. ARC is a 33 bedded rehabilitation unit, which has recently undergone a service review and consists of therapists, nurses and social services staff.
We are looking for a flexible, enthusiastic and motivated Physiotherapist, with an interest in rehabilitation, to work as part of our integrated team with health and social services staff to provide Physiotherapy assessments and interventions for patients with a variety of long-term conditions.
The post holder will be a registered Physiotherapist, who will hold an extensive caseload, with responsibility for individualised assessments and treatment plans, including identifying appropriate equipment, and delegating to support staff as appropriate. The ability to effectively communicate, verbally and in writing, with colleagues, senior clinicians, carers and patients is essential. You must be both methodical and organised, with skills in working under pressure, both individually and as part of a wider team. You will have a close working relationship with a number of external services as well as internal colleagues.
You will be expected to lead the physiotherapy team by contributing to service development and engaging staff in changes, taking direction from the management team and using your own initiative. You will be responsible for supervising and supporting other team members and students. Assistance in completing audits may be required at times, and ensuring the highest standards of care for our patients.
You will need to be able to travel around the local area to see patients in their own homes. To allow you to develop your knowledge and skills, we offer regular in-service training and supervision and we would expect the post holder to take an active role in both.
