An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Physiotherapist to work in a new pathway for specialist fatigue managements in patients with Long Covid which is being established within the Portsmouth Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME Service. Funding has been awarded, initially for 12 months, to set up and establish this service.

The post-holder will work alongside other clinicians as part of a multi-disciplinary team to assess and provide specialist fatigue management to patients with Long Covid. It is anticipated that much of the work will be able to be conducted remotely using telephone and video technology, however travel to St Mary’s Community Health Campus in Portsmouth will be needed at times and occasionally there may be a need to travel to other sites in Hampshire for meetings and training purposes.

The Portsmouth Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME Service has strong links with local pain management services, MSK department and local hospital specialities.

Successful applicants will be joining a friendly and supportive team and will be provided with training as needed in specialist assessment skills and to deliver group programmes for fatigue management. As a wider service we offer regular education, training and supervision.
