Neuro Physiotherapist

Job Reference: 310-COP01-1694940-B

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust
Brookfields Hospital/Hinchingbrooke Hospital, Cambridge/Huntingdon
£24,214 - £30,112 pa pro rata

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust have launched a Stroke Early Support Discharge Service (ESD). This is a key part of the pathway for those surviving stroke and their carers. We support people to leave hospital sooner and provide intense rehabilitation for a six week period both in the community and inpatient community beds. This enables patients to maximise their independence as quickly as possible. Our team consists of Neuro Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech and Language Therapists, Psychologists, Neuro Rehabilitation Assistants, Stroke Co-ordinators and Data Co-ordinators. We work as an integrated service with the Community Neuro Rehab teams across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough and are part of the National SSNAP audit.

We are seeking an enthusiastic and dynamic Band 5 Neuro Physiotherapist to join the Team. This role is to support the delivery of ESD in-reach into the community beds, as well as work with patients in their own homes. Support will be available from within the multi-professional ESD team and also from the Community Neuro Rehab teams who are co-located on site with the community beds. The successful candidate will have access to our ESD work bases in the South Locality and will work in an agile manner to manage their caseload of patients, working closely with other professionals within the team.

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough has a vision for the future of health & social care in the County. Our joint plan to keep Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Fit for the Future has been developed by health and social care partners and sets out how we will redesign services to deliver the NHS England 5 Year Forward View. This service has been developed in conjunction with North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust (NWAFT) and Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CUH) and will be part of an exciting new model of care built around the patient in the community and ensuring the system is able to manage an increasingly older population.

You will play a vital part in supporting patients with physical, cognitive and psychosocial challenges to achieve their maximum potential, ultimately delivering better health, better care and better improved efficiency for the people of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

There is an in-house training programme available and you will undertake a blended competency package to help you develop within your profession and role.

The ideal candidate will be flexible and adaptable to support service delivery across the organisation.
