The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust is excited to announce the development of a brand new RSU to deliver ward based NIV in line with national best practice guidelines. This unit will be headed by a Respiratory Consultant with a specialist interest in this modality supported by a team of newly recruited Nurses and Physiotherapists, operating on an integrated ward model.
In addition to NIV the physiotherapists within this unit will support the treatment and rehabilitation requirements of patients within this speciality.
We have close links with our colleagues at BreathingSpace which is internationally renowned centre of excellence in delivering respiratory care and pulmonary rehabilitation and we hope to see the RSU further developing these links.
We are currently seeking Senior Respiratory Physiotherapists with relevant Postgraduate experience including recent inpatient respiratory rotations, experience of NIV and experience of participation within a respiratory out of hours on call service.
We are looking ideally for the successful candidates to work a shift pattern (excluding nights) in conjunction with Nursing colleagues across 7 days.
Whilst the Physiotherapists will embedded in the Nursing structure, they will retain Professional support and supervision from the Clinical Lead for Inpatient Therapies and Clinical Specilaist Physiotherapists. This will allow for us to ensure a strong commitment to supervision, PDR, CPD and staff training.
