£31,365 - £37,890

Can you demonstrate our values of Trust, Respect, Integrity and Compassion? Do you share in our ambition to create high quality, compassionate care and wellbeing for all?

Then take a step towards LPT...

Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust (LPT) provides a range of community health, mental health and learning disability services for people of all ages. Delivered through over 100 settings from inpatient wards to out in the community, our 6,500 staff serves over 1m people living in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

Not all Heroes wear capes. Now more than ever, being a #NHSHero is something to be proud about and we are looking for new physiotherapists to join our Community Therapy Team.

Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust is working together with Adult Social Care across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR) in order to deliver a recently commissioned HomeFirst service alongside core Community Therapy.

As a result there is ongoing significant investment in staffing in order to ensure that services can be delivered by the right therapist in the right place at the right time, with patients receiving timely high quality therapy. Due to this additional funding we now have the opportunity to recruit to three further new Band 6 Physiotherapy posts. In these integrated posts you will work alongside community-based nursing, therapy and adult social care teams you will be able to use your therapy skills to:

  • support people to remain in their homes when they are having a health or social care crisis, rather than needing to go into hospital or a care home
  • help people get home from hospital quickly and provide them with rehabilitation and reablement to help restore their health, wellbeing and independence
  • deliver high quality core therapy reablement, rehabilitation and recovery to people within their own homes

We are looking for individuals who are highly motivated, resilient and proactive with the ability to prioritise their own workload. Individuals who use their initiative and the ability to work on their own and as part of a team demonstrating excellent communication and organisational and leadership skills and be able to adapt to a changing and pressurised environment.

If this is you and you can demonstrate that you hold a Degree / Diploma in Physiotherapy, are registered with the HPC, have relevant NHS experience either pre or post qualification, as well evidence of continuing professional development and be able to be flexible to meet the needs of the service then please apply.

Our therapy teams operate in an integrated holistic way where Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists work synergistically in order to provide the best possible outcomes for our patients. You will be encouraged and supported to grow your skillset, with training, supervision and support from your team and manager.

The posts are located as follows:

Post 1 - based within the City East Nursing and Therapy hub (Based at Braunstone Health Centre), 37.5 hours, will consider part time hours

Post 2 – 2x Positions based within the Hinckley and Bosworth Nursing and Therapy hub (Based at Hinckley and Bosworth Community Hospital) 37.5 hours

As a service we operate Monday to Friday 8-6 and Saturday/Sunday/Bank holidays 8-4. Hours/days worked are based on a rota system.



We recognise the need to develop modern working practices to enable employees to maximise their performance and productivity whilst maintaining a good work life balance. To this aim the Trust has adopted an Agile working methodology and the posts advertised fall under this methodology as outlined within the Trust Agile working Policy. Please talk to the recruiting manager about what this means in practice for you.

For areas where our teams work to staffing rosters, rosters are set in advance at a team level and you will be joining an established roster. Your rostered shifts will be confirmed to you when arranging your start date. We will consider requests to vary working patterns in line with our flexible working policy.

To make the most of your application, we may consider successful applicants for vacancies for the same post in different locations where this is appropriate and meets our mutual requirements.

For all substantive roles the appointment of every new member of staff (excluding medical and dental staff) to a post is subject to a 6 month probationary period, details of which are in our Probation Policy.

We aim to develop a workforce that reflects our service users. To this end we actively implement equal opportunities in employment and service delivery and seek people who share our commitment.

All jobs will require permission to work in the UK.
