An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Band 6 clinician to join our excellent community respiratory and rehabilitation team in Leicestershire.

The role includes the organisation and delivery of community based pulmonary and heart failure rehabilitation programs across Leicestershire. This comprises new patient assessments, the delivery of group exercise and education sessions and discharge assessments.

This position will coordinate and evaluate the day to day running and patient management of a community rehabilitation program and will also include supporting Band 5 physios, technical instructors and students. It will also have an element of individual home visits for the management of community respiratory patients.

The successful applicant will work within a multi-disciplinary team and be supported by the Rehabilitation Team Lead and the wider respiratory and heart failure nursing teams and leads. The post is permanent and will involve travel across the county to provide rehabilitation in several locations along with patient management in their own homes.

Applicants need to be motivated and enthusiastic with excellent communication skills. Applicants need to show adaptability and flexibility whilst being patient and team focused. Experience of working with respiratory patients and respiratory assessment and treatment skills are essential. Knowledge of the delivery of pulmonary rehabilitation is also essential and community experience is desirable.

This role is suitable for physiotherapists, nurses, occupational therapists or any other suitably qualified and trained AHPs. This post is open for full and part time applicants.
