Senior Rotational Neurophysiotherapist – Community and Acute Rotations

Hours: Full time

Band: 6

An exciting opportunity has become available for a specialist Physiotherapist to join the North West Surrey Community Rehabilitation Team. Recent service redesign has enabled the Community Rehab Team to offer a specialist Neuro-rehabilitation service to the adult community in North West Surrey through outpatient clinics and domiciliary visits.

This post will form part of a yearly rotational post with Ashford and St Peters Hospital NHS Trust, joining their stroke / neuro rotations* i.e. Early Supported Discharge for Stroke, Hyper-acute and Acute Stroke Unit, Stroke Rehabilitation and Neuro-rehabilitation following their initial year with the Community Rehab team.

We are looking for a therapist who is interested in developing their specialist skills in neurology, and who will enjoy opportunities to participate in local service development. The successful candidate will have experience at a senior level in working in stroke rehabilitation or neurology and preferably have NHS experience and have worked in community settings. In addition it is expected that they will have Physiotherapy experience in a variety of settings including working in an acute hospital and in different clinical areas including, older people, orthopaedics, surgery and acute medicine.

You should have skills in clinical reasoning and communication and be confident whilst working in a busy, often unpredictable and challenging environment. You will have opportunities to develop yourself and to be involved with the professional development of more junior staff, therapy assistants and students.

We are looking for a therapist who will relish the opportunities to contribute to service developments, innovations and audit within the neuro pathway.

There is an established appraisal process and CPD opportunities, which provides opportunity to further develop your clinical and leadership skills to progress your career.

This role demands excellent clinical knowledge and application of neurorehabilitation skills to deliver high quality intervention in patients’ homes and other settings. Flexibility, good organizational and prioritisation skills are essential to these roles. A car for business use and a clean driving licence are required for the community aspects.

We are happy to discuss flexible working to support staff in achieving a good work/life balance. Although CSH North West Surrey Community Rehab team is currently running a 5 day service, ASPH NHS Trust is expanding its 7 day service and weekend shifts will be required. The acute rotations will also require the post holder to be part of the on-call rota.

For further information, please contact Penny Fill, Principal Therapist, on 01483 846361 or email:


CSH Surrey is an NHS community provider and part of the NHS family. But we’re not your usual NHS employer! That’s because we are actually a co-owned organisation. This means that our 750+ staff, although still on NHS Agenda for Change, Terms & Conditions and members of the NHS pension scheme, actually ‘own’ CSH.

So what difference does being a co-owned organisation make? Because our nurses, therapists and support staff own CSH Surrey, they have a real say in how our services are run. They are also given the freedom and personal responsibility to change and improve their services.

Over the last nine years since we were established this has created a greater sense of pride, commitment and motivation among our staff, which means better quality and more innovative care for our patients and families

Being employee-owned has helped CSH Surrey to genuinely put patient and client care at the heart of what we do – because when you own something, you really do care more passionately about it! We believe our Friends and Family Test results are testament to the high quality of care we provide, with our services regularly achieving 90-100% scores.

We were actually the first NHS staff in the country to become employee owners – something we’re really proud of. Many other public sector organisations have since followed our path, and we continue to lead the way in Surrey and nationally by innovating and improving how community services are run.

CSH Surrey is also a not-for-profit social enterprise. This means we combine the best of both worlds - the social ethos of the NHS with the independence, innovation, drive and ‘can do’ attitude of a business. Importantly to our staff, we use any surplus to reinvest into and continually improve our community services, and to support our local communities through our Community Fund.

So, if you’re looking for a different type of NHS employer that really does put patient/client care first, and you want to work with motivated, passionate and ‘can do’ colleagues who have a real say in how their services are run, come and work for us.
