An exciting opportunity has arisen for a skilled, experienced Physiotherapist to join the Physiotherapy Team working in Acute Medicine at the RD&E on a 12 month fixed term contract.

The role will involve undertaking comprehensive assessments of patients admitted to the acute medical wards and provide specialist respiratory physiotherapy interventions on the wards and in the high dependency unit on Culm ward.
