Connect Health is the largest specialised independent provider of community musculoskeletal (MSK) services in the UK, serving over 300k NHS patients per year and 100+ businesses. We put our three key stakeholders – patients, tax payers and our colleagues – at the heart of every decision we make.
“The best thing about Connect? For me it’s the opportunities to develop”
Connect Health have been asked to provide and manage the delivery of the MSK Service on behalf of Croydon CCG. Our aim is to build on the success of the previous service through application of our specialist MSK supportive infrastructure. We expect the service to grow and as such are looking for skilled, motivated and passionate clinical staff to join the existing team in delivering a fantastic, innovative local service to the people of Croydon. Our philosophy of care is based on patient empowerment; ensuring all people have timely access to the right information that allows them to self-manage or make informed and shared decisions about their future care needs. We support staff to understand the importance of a BPS, evidence-informed approach which has shared decision making at its heart as well as a focus on activity/exercise.
We are looking for well-organised and experienced MSK Physiotherapists who buy in to our philosophy and want to deliver quality clinical care for patients with musculoskeletal conditions. Whilst undertaking comprehensive assessment and diagnosis of patients with a wide variety of physical and emotional needs, you must formulate, deliver, review and progress individual treatment programmes and ensure effective treatment, specialist advice and timely discharge are achieved.
We are committed to developing and promoting a positive and dynamic image and culture and it is expected that you will contribute to the fostering of productive relationships with key stakeholders such as local Consultants, GPs and corporate clients whilst providing support and training to junior staff and physiotherapy students.
You’ll be positive, constructive and approachable, along with being registered with the HCPC, a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) and a fully qualified Physiotherapist. We’re looking for you to manage a varied caseload of MSK patients, as well as the ability to work under pressure and being committed to CPD.
You should have the desire to facilitate improvement in yourself and the service. You will have excellent and confident communication skills with both patients and colleagues alike. You may have experience of working within the NHS, Public or Private Sector, bringing transferrable skills to Connect.
