We are looking for an enthusiastic physiotherapist who is motivated to consolidate their knowledge and clinical skills as a Senior Rotational Children’s Physiotherapist in a dynamic Children’s Physiotherapy team.
An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced physiotherapist to work across specialist acute and community children’s services based at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. Rotations are within the Child Development Service, children’s musculoskeletal outpatients, neonates and paediatric inpatients.
The Child Development Physiotherapy Service is contracted by Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust to provide physiotherapy to North Kensington and Chelsea and Central and North Westminster localities. The physiotherapists work within a multi-disciplinary team to treat infants, children and adolescents in community settings, which includes children’s homes, schools, special schools and nurseries. The Children’s Physiotherapy Musculoskeletal Service includes treatment of common paediatric musculoskeletal conditions referred from acute and primary care agencies. Senior physiotherapists contribute to the established clinical pathways for infants with common orthopaedic conditions referred from neonatal and postnatal units. The inpatient team provides physiotherapy for an expanded Children’s Intensive Care Unit (CICU), Children’s Wards, Infectious diseases, Haematology, Neurology, Major Trauma, Paediatric Accident and Emergency and Short Stay Unit. Children present with a variety of conditions for which physiotherapy management is required (respiratory, neurology, neuro-developmental, orthopaedic and surgical) and established skills and knowledge in rehabilitation and respiratory intervention are highly desirable. There is a Children’s Physiotherapy Out of Hours Service for emergency respiratory physiotherapy.
The post will give you the opportunity to extend your clinical and leadership skills with support from specialist children’s physiotherapists and advanced physiotherapy practitioners. There are opportunities to contribute to service development and supervise junior physiotherapists, physiotherapy assistants and students. We also offer a robust education and training programme and work in a friendly and respectful environment where each team member strives to support children’s growth and development to achieve their full potential.
