Inpatient Physiotherapy Assistant
£15,902 per annum
There are plenty of reasons why you might want to join us. The chance to work in a state-of-the-art hospital and the scope to progress your career will certainly sway your decision. But we don’t just want you to join us, we want you to stay with us and progress your career for many years to come. That’s why we give our staff manageable workloads and the chance to spend time with their patients finding the best outcome. It’s also why we encourage every single member of staff to be on first name terms, and to embrace the opportunity to have a mentor who will support them.
Within this enticing role, you will therefore join our team as a junior member, providing full clinical and non-clinical physiotherapy support under the guidance of qualified physiotherapy staff. This will involve everything from basic patient care within the ward such as getting out of bed and find their balance, to ordering supplies and preparing equipment. Teaching simple exercise programmes, breathing exercises and how to use walking aids, this hands-on role will provide great reassurance to your clients.
As such, you will need a good level of physical fitness and fantastic communication skills to fully assist in rehabilitation programmes. Solid IT skills will be needed in order to maintain treatment records and you will need a positive approach and the discipline and flexibility to follow directives by more senior members of staff. This is a fantastic opportunity to get into the physiotherapy profession, as no previous experience or specific qualifications are needed. What you must have though is fantastic customer service skills with the willingness to put the patient at the heart of everything you do.
This is a really unique chance to join a department where you’ll be expected to maintain your professional development with training opportunities, and further your knowledge with help from your colleagues, so join us today.
