This is an exciting opportunity to join the Royal Devon & Exeter NHS Foundation Trust as part of our Outpatient MSK Physiotherapy Service working across the Heavitree and Wonford Hospital sites.

We have a substantive 15 hour/week position available as part of a flexible team that will cover the MSK outpatient setting.
