This is an exciting opportunity to join a busy acute NHS Foundation Trust as a rotational junior physiotherapist with opportunities across the integrated acute and community services.

The Royal Devon & Exeter NHS Foundation Trust had an excellent CQC rating for delivering care and the Therapy service is actively involved with research and development. We are based in a beautiful part of the country with the sea and the moors and located in the historic city of Exeter.

The post holder is responsible for providing physiotherapy assessment, diagnosis & treatment; and education & advice to patients, carers and members of the multidisciplinary team. There will be liaison with family, carers and external agencies to ensure safe and effective discharge of patients from the acute trust and/or appropriate transfer of care.

The caseload will be allocated by the relevant Speciality Team Lead therapist. This is a developmental post as part of a rotational scheme, supported by experienced specialist physiotherapists with regular in service training and development. Rotational specialities may include: general, acute or respiratory medicine, healthcare for older people, intensive care & paediatrics, surgery, amputee rehabilitation, trauma & orthopaedics, outpatients, neurology, acute stroke, neuro-rehabilitation and community based rehabilitation across Exeter, East and Mid Devon. We have excellent in-service training and development.

The post is based across the relevant community sites and the acute hospital sites of Wonford and Heavitree, with opportunities to work into rehab settings, ward based teams, clinics and patient’s homes or other residential settings.

The post also holds a requirement to participate in the ‘on-call’ service and will include regular weekend commitments across seven days. We are looking for staff who can start immediately but will also consider holding some roles for graduates in June 2018. Our vision is to provide safe, high quality seamless services delivered with courtesy and respect. To achieve our vision we expect all our staff to uphold our Trust values. Our Trust values are: Honesty, Openness & Integrity Fairness, Inclusion & Collaboration Respect & Dignity

***Preference will be given to staff with ‘Priority’ and 'At Risk' status including NHS At Risk staff throughout Devon.**
