Vacancy details

We have a vacancy for a Band 6 Community Physiotherapist. We are looking for someone who is an enthusiastic team player to join the Keswick & Solway ICC - to be based in Wigton, but may be required to work throughout the ICC, depending on demand.

You will need to be experienced in managing patients with a variety of conditions, and be able to use your assessment and clinical judgement skills to the full. Ideally, you will also have some community experience.

The main function of the Community Rehabilitation Team within the ICC is the prevention of unnecessary hospital admissions, facilitate early discharge from the acute setting and provide patient centred support. This may be in the form of rehabilitation and/or care support plans. As a qualified clinician you would be expected to provide timely assessment of the patient’s needs and put the appropriate plans in place for their ongoing management. You will also be expected to be part of our Lead Professional of the Day rota and contribute to the rapid response function of the team.

The successful applicant would be supported by a team of Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Assistant Practitioners, Rehab Assistants, Home Care Practitioners and Hub coordination staff. We work very closely with the local GP’s, District Nurses and Mental Health Team, as well as Adult Social Care and other agencies.

The post requires 7 day working on a rota basis, covering the hours between 8am and 8pm – 7.5 hour shifts.

Car driver essential.

Informal enquiries: contact Joanne Wills (Team Lead/Physio) or Emma Ebbatson (Physio) from Wigton Community Rehab Team for further information (016973 66639)

ICCs aim to address the challenges of an aging population and increasing demand on health and care services by providing more out of hospital care and empowering people to take control of their health and wellbeing. This will require new ways of working to focus on preventing ill health and ensure services are sustainable for the future. These new ways of working will follow the same approach across all eight ICCs with flexibility to tailor services to the needs of local people.
