We are looking for an innovative, enthusiastic and motivated Band 6 Specialist Physiotherapist to join our Urgent Community Response Team in South/West Exeter. We are an integrated health and social care team who facilitates crisis management in the community, prevention of hospital admissions, and enable appropriate discharges, supporting people to remain as independent as possible at home.

Our service is based at Exeter Community Hospital. We work closely with the Royal Devon & Exeter Acute teams, Exeter Community Rehabilitation Team, Social Service colleagues, Mental Health colleagues and local voluntary services. We are able to provide experience across a wide range of clinical specialities. The post holder will be an autonomous practitioner working without direct supervision and at times lone working.

This post is for a Specialist Physiotherapist providing assessment and treatment of patients, presenting with a wide range of acute and long term conditions including frailty, and those that affect neurological, respiratory, and MSK systems. As a physiotherapist, this post allows you to draw on skills gained from all rotations, due to the broad range of patient presentations. You will also work with Specialist Nurses and Occupational Therapists, Pharmacy and Social care colleagues, enabling you to expand your knowledge in multidisciplinary complex care. You will need to demonstrate flexibility, excellent time management skills and excellent communication and interpersonal skills.

Our team prides itself on providing a comprehensive and structured induction programme, training and supervision as well as peer support. You will be expected to provide supervision, training and support to junior staff and students. You will work with Managers / Therapy Leads to develop the service in line with patient’s need and Trust wide developments.

This is an exciting and fast paced team, where each day can present new challenges and learning opportunities. This post would be a fantastic opportunity for an experienced Band 5 who has completed core rotations and who is looking to progress to the next step. It would also be an excellent post for a Band 6 looking for a fresh challenge with new opportunities.

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.***
