Job Description

Due to the nature of work provided by the service and the need for this role to work in a care home setting potentially at any time, appointees must be able to demonstrate in accordance with statutory requirements proof of Covid vaccination or medical exemption to meet the legal standard.

The community setting is THE PLACE TO BE with care being prioritised at home and patients being cared for in the community wherever possible - this is clearly outlined in the NHS Long Term Plan and can already be seen on the ground.

The Community Independence Service in Kensington and Chelsea is looking for motivated and enthusiastic Band 6 Physiotherapist to join our friendly and fun loving rehabilitation team. You will be passionate about the value of community rehabilitation and preventing hospital admissions, have had a variety of clinical experience and be ready to step into a community role to further develop your clinical and non-clinical skills. We invite both current Band 6 and Band 5 Physio's with a view to a Band 6 post to apply.

This is a very exciting time to join the team as you will have the opportunity to shape your role in the service alongside your ambitions within our teams.

This is what some people have recently said about working in our team:

“The team are lovely, hard-working and knowledgeable, supportive”

“The team has a nice atmosphere everyone gets on”

“The work is flexible, I feel in control, empowered and trusted to do things”

We are part of a wider Community Independence Service, which is also offered in Hammersmith & Fulham and Westminster. You will be connected with peers across the tri-borough to support you and to work on service improvement partnerships. You will also be working closely with our acute partners, such as Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust and Chelsea & Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

You will enjoy the rewards of working with a client group for whom you can make a significant difference every day, and you will experience the strong motivation of being part of a supportive multi-agency effort which includes Medical, Mental Health, Nursing, Allied Health Professional, Social care and Reablement staff.

CNWL is a fantastic trust to continue your Physiotherapy career:

  • We have recently launched our Community Strategy to enable us to align with the NHS England Ageing Well Community Strategy of which AHPs have a key opportunity.

  • We have an annual therapies conference.
  • The entire CIS Leadership team is made up of Nurses and AHPs, most of which have been with the service for a number of years.

If you come and work with us, we will ensure you are able to follow your clinical and leadership development priorities identified through your personal development and appraisal plan.
