Band 6 Physiotherapist
Isle of Sheppey - Sheppey Community Hospital
Are you a dedicated, caring and thoughtful Physiotherapist based in the Sheppey area? Are you looking to join an NHS Health and Social Care partner which is striving to make positive changes? Would you like to work for an organisation where more than 9 out of every ten 10 of the people who use services would recommend them?
As a Band 6 Physiotherapist you will receive an AFC 20/21 salary (ranging from £31,365 to £33,176) plus terms and conditions including an NHS pension. We’ll provide you with access to a committed Learning and Development team, and we work closely with Universities and Health Education England to further your potential and support your progression. We will offer a combination of in house eLearning, workshops and courses to support your development. You will also have the opportunity to supervise HCA's and other junior members of staff to enhance your supervisory skills and aid your progression.
You will become part of the Virgin Tribe. This grants you access to premier offers on Virgin Products such as holidays, experience days and gyms! You’ll access our central online health and lifestyle platform covering healthy recipes, activity challenges, and support information around mental health. All this, and flexible working patterns to help support your work/life balance.
In addition to the above, you could receive an additional one-off payment of up to £2,000 as a welcome to our service – a Golden Hello from us, to you
As a Senior Physiotherapist you will work within the Rapid Response team, where you will work collaboratively with our team of Physiotherapists, OTs, Nurses and Rehab assistants, to deliver high quality care to patients in the community by assessing their needs and implementing a treatment plan to encourage their independent living and prevent hospital admissions.
You will be expected to travel out into the community to review patients, so access to a car and holding a full driving license is essential. In addition to this you will need a holistic approach when treating patients with excellent commination skills as well as being able to maintain accurate records in line with the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and HCPC standards and maintaining confidentiality, privacy and dignity of all patients. You’ll care for patients and their families in the way that you believe is best, delivering our high service standards, sharing best practice, and actively improving the way we work.
Frail elderly patients and those with complex needs living in Dartford, Gravesham, Swanley and Swale are set to benefit from getting more health and care services in their own homes thanks to new multi-disciplinary team (MDT) coordinators.
The coordinators will be managed by us, and we’ll be working in partnership with each area’s local NHS clinical commissioning groups (CCGs).
Feel the Difference
We partner with the NHS to make a real difference to people in Kent and we’re building a working environment where colleagues too can really feel the difference. It’s the kind of place where nothing’s too much trouble. Where you’ll feel empowered, listened to, valued and where we’ll support you to bring your best self to work every single day and to deliver high quality care. And that’s just the beginning. Since 2006, we’ve delivered services to millions of people by developing our own unique approach where our patients are at the centre of everything we do.
