Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist
- Full Time
COMMUNITY STROKE SERVICE
Based at Princess of Wales Community Hospital or Pershore Community Hospital
Occupational Therapist or Physiotherapist
37.5 Hours per week over a 7 day rota Fixed Term Contract for 12 months
An exciting opportunity has arisen for an innovative and dynamic Occupational Therapist or Physiotherapist with experience in stroke rehabilitation to complement our friendly inter-disciplinary team in the provision of early supported discharge for patients and their carers/families within the patient’s home.
You will have therapy skills which can withstand the challenge of extending your practice to work in an inter-disciplinary manner with Nursing, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech and Language Therapy colleagues. You will have experience in treating stroke patients and will understand the under-pinning principles of stroke rehabilitation.
You will be given a robust induction period, and will work alongside senior clinicians with many years experience within the speciality of Stroke Rehabilitation, who can support and guide your development in this field. You will be provided with excellent management and clinical supervision in this post, which will be a countywide post. We have 2 bases one in Pershore and one in Bromsgrove. Your base will be whichever one is nearest to your home address.
You will need to be a versatile, adaptable team player who has an understanding of the needs of the community and is prepared to work across a 5 day working week including occasional weekends and late shifts. The post is a fixed term contract for 12 months to cover maternity leave. However, with future anticipated investment, there may be further opportunities. We are happy to negotiate flexible working hours to fit with individual needs as well as fulfilling the requirements of the Countywide Service.
You will also be able to meet the travel requirements of the post.
