An opportunity has arisen for a Band 6 Physiotherapist to be part of the Prevention and Safeguarding Team in Rutland. As a health employee working within Rutland Social Care, you will provide a therapy duty triage, a rapid response and proactive community therapy service which supports the prevention principals of the Care Act 2014.

The Physiotherapist will provide a community based response to prevention with a particular emphasis on minimising the risk of falls.

You will work with individuals and their families, carers and communities to help them maximise their independence and remain in the community.

You will provide specialist falls assessment and intervention to minimise falls risk in the community, including Care Homes within Rutland.

You will be part of the team who Support Adult Social Care in service planning activities around falls prevention.

You will work in an integrated way with colleagues and other health and social care professionals to ensure best outcomes for service users.

We are looking for a Band 6 Physiotherapist to join our senior therapy team to provide high quality clinical physiotherapy interventions, advice and management and to support the senior leadership team in developing core therapy services across Community Health Services within Rutland.

Applicants should have a broad range of knowledge and skills gained through prior band 5/6 experience and must be able to demonstrate their skills in supporting the clinical development and training of an established wider team of junior therapists and technical instructors in line with evidence based practice.

As a senior clinician you will be expected to maintain an independent caseload of patients as well as contributing to teaching and supervision of more junior colleagues.

The successful post holder will undertake day to day management of a therapy caseload, and you will be encouraged to participate in service development, with regular supervision, teaching and peer support in line with your personal development plan.

Should you be successful, you will be encouraged and supported to grow your skillset, and to challenge the way we do things. We are looking for a determined and self-motivated individual who can make a difference to the care of patients from all backgrounds, and to promote therapy services within the trust.
