Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust is a forward thinking organisation looking for dynamic and enthusiastic staff who are up for the challenge of working in new and innovative ways.
We are looking to recruit a full time Band 5 Physiotherapist to work in the Taunton Integrated Rehab Team
The Integrated Rehab Teams treat a variety of conditions, including the frail elderly, falls, orthopaedics and neurology. We aim to ‘do what’s right for the patient/put the patient at the centre of everything that we do/help people live the best lives they can’. The teams treat patients in the community as well as in reaching into the community hospitals within these areas.
As a member of the team you will carry out specific Physiotherapy assessments, which will include goal setting and treatment planning, assessing risk, promoting and enabling independent functioning, and ensure that service users optimise their rehabilitation potential. You will be committed to a person-centered approach to your work, have an ability to prioritise and work flexibly.
We are a supportive rehabilitation service that is committed to continued professional development, peer support and practice education and broad ongoing training, and we have excellent support from our clinical specialists.
This post will involve the supervision of rehab assistants within the team.
The Integrated Rehab Teams provide a 7 day a week service and therefore it will be a requirement to work at weekends (currently 4 weekend days in 12 months).
Access to a vehicle for travelling within Somerset is essential.
The Community Health services is part of Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and is committed to the provision of high quality services and the development of staff to deliver them. We welcome informal enquiries and visits from therapists.
