The purpose of the role is to deliver high quality, effective clinical care. It’s also about treating clients as individuals in line with our values, and tailoring the care you give to meet their needs.
You’ll be working within a multidisciplinary team, assisting the Physiotherapy Manager with day-to-day activities and deputising or covering for them as required.

You’ll be a confident communicator with the ability to engage effectively with the general public and other healthcare professionals. With a commitment to the use of evidence-based practice, you’ll also be able to demonstrate excellent manual therapy skills.
