An exciting opportunity has arisen for an innovative and enthusiastic Band 6 Physiotherapist to bring new ideas and share good practice within a busy, friendly and supportive team.

This post is a 1 year, fixed term Band 6 secondment to cover maternity leave. You will be reporting directly to the Matron during this period.

You will be working as part of a multi-disciplinary team. The service offers structured Appraisal and Clinical Supervision systems, and actively promotes Continued Professional Development through in-service and external training.
