Looking for a new opportunity to develop your Physiotherapy skills in rehabilitation?

Want to live on the beautiful east coat surrounded by the sea, beach and countryside?

Look no further, we have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Physiotherapist to join our team in Bridlington Hospital.

You will be joining a community focused hospital in the midst of some exciting changes and developments, with the added bonus of Bridlington being a fantastic place to work and live.

Easily accessible beaches, moorland and forestry enable you to create a fantastic work life balance, especially for adventurous individuals who enjoy everything from leisurely pursuits to adrenaline sports. We are a supportive team with opportunities to work with advanced clinical specialist colleagues from York regularly, and we are currently looking for someone to dynamically lead and promote a culture of home first rehabilitation.

The post will be based on Johnson ward in Bridlington Hospital, with a self-motivated and aspirational MDT. We are looking for an experienced physiotherapist who has some experience, or is keen to develop their skills in the areas of stroke and rehabilitation. A good knowledge of the SAFER principles will be beneficial. SAFER Principles underpins the Trusts ethos to ensure the efficient flow of patients through the system, so they are treated in the right place at the right time.

A person who is an excellent communicator with a flexible approach, existing or an eagerness to establish links with community partners and a passion for 'trusted assessor' principles, will be at an advantage when working on this ward. You will have opportunities to support junior staff and students, as well as drive and lead in service development projects and quality patient care.

The Trust actively promotes staff development through a structured support process which will be available to you for both clinical and managerial supervision, and encouragement to explore other learning opportunities. You will also have access to peer support both from the senior clinicians in Scarborough, as well as wider AHP peer support within the York Trust.

We run an excellent practical and simulation based on call training programme, and bite sized practical training sessions are available throughout the year.

HCPC registration and a degree/diploma in Physiotherapy is a requirement for this role.

It's not just the area that's a great draw. In addition, as a member of our team you'll have access to one of the most generous and comprehensive pension schemes in the UK, a minimum of 27 days annual leave (on top of Bank Holidays) and an award-winning package of staff benefits (see link on the right).
