Calling all Community Physiotherapists – Do you want to be part of the future of care?

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a number of enthusiastic and forward-thinking Domiciliary Physiotherapists to join our newly developing integrated Neighbourhood Teams.

The role will involve assessing and delivering physiotherapy interventions to the adult population served by the Neighbourhood Team. In contrast to separate, traditional, domiciliary and intermediate care type roles, this role will encompass both planned referrals and more rapid response urgent physiotherapy as part of the team’s admission avoidance remit.

The purpose of these new Neighbourhood Teams is to manage the health and care needs of a defined cohort of people from a number of GP surgeries. This will include planned, routine activity as well as unplanned, more urgent response with a focus on admission avoidance, early supported hospital discharge and the principle of care at home.

The Neighbourhood Teams will provide an integrated approach to care delivery, maximizing available expertise and resource and reducing duplication. The team will comprise community nurses, OTs, physiotherapists, social workers, GPs and other aligned specialist roles as the model grows.

You will be expected to contribute to high quality, multi-agency care and support to patients, as well as contributing and planning for the future development of our Neighbourhood Teams. You will also have the opportunity to teach and supervise multi-professional clinicians.

Our teams are newly-established, and maintain strong links with Worcestershire Acute Trust with whom we work closely. The advertised posts will ensure a truly multi-disciplinary and holistic approach.

We currently have vacancies in the following areas:

Redditch and Bromsgrove

Worcester City

Droitwich and Ombersley

Evesham, Bredon Broadway and Inkberrow

Pershore and Upton- on-Severn.

Wyre Forest

Neighbourhood Teams will continue to evolve and develop to meet the changing needs of the local communities we serve and you will have an exciting opportunity to contribute and plan for the future development of community services across the STP.

Opportunities will be available for you to gain experience in service leadership and re-design.

You will have an innovative approach and in return we will provide many opportunities for personal and professional development with chances to gain experience in service leadership and re-design. You will get high-quality support and will receive clinical supervision from a Band 7 Clinical Lead. There will also be opportunities for coaching and/or mentorship.

For further information regarding these positions or to arrange a personal visit please contact Heads of Integrated Community Services Jo Jones or Gill Mobbs


PLEASE NOTE: All new appointments are subject to 6 months’ probation period.
