About the Role:
We have a fantastic opportunity for the right individual to join our Therapy Team working on the Inpatient Unit and also supporting patients in the community.

You will provide physiotherapy assessment and treatment to patients with a range of life limiting illnesses such as those with a cancer diagnosis; Motor Neurone Disease; end stage COPD; heart failure, as well as frail and elderly patients with multiple-pathologies including falls and dementia.
We are looking for applicants who can demonstrate evidence-based practice, up to date clinical skills, flexibility and a commitment to the delivery of an effective and efficient therapy service. Your experience will have been gained in either community or inpatient settings and be transferable to your new role. In both aspects of this role the ability to work collaboratively to manage and prioritize a caseload of patients with complex needs is essential.
You must be motivated, forward thinking and committed to patient care in providing clinical support to patients with long-term conditions and end of life care needs.

- 27 days annual leave plus 8 bank holidays, pro rata

We receive funding from the NHS but primarily we rely on fundraising activities and legacies, together with trading activities (21 Shops, Lottery and other trading) to support our work.
