We are looking for an enthusiastic Band 6 Physiotherapist to join our established and friendly team specialising in orthopaedics.

This position is an eight monthly rotational post rotating between Barnet and Chase Farm Hospitals. Barnet, covering either fracture neck of femur service  or trauma, involving the management of limb fractures and complex spinal trauma as well as repatriations from other hospitals. The other  post is at Chase Farm Hospital  which is elective orthopaedics.

This is an exciting time to join the team as the new elective orthopaedic service moved into a brand new hospital on the Chase Farm site in August 2018, as well as scope to develop within the existing roles at Barnet.

The cross site team consists of Clinical Specialists, experienced band 7’s, rotational band 5’s and 6’s and Therapy Support Workers.

This is an opportunity for a physiotherapist to expand upon their skills in patient assessment and treatment of inpatient orthopaedics and explore service development ideas within a supportive and enthusiastic team.

The Therapy Service holds a high profile within the Trust and you will be encouraged to develop your clinical, teaching and managerial skills according to the clinical setting and within KSF and CPD guidelines. We provide excellent training opportunities including a specialty in-service training programme, offering you the chance to actively participate in peer education.

Support and supervision will be provided by experienced therapists. The two hospital sites are on the edge of the Green Belt with easy access to the M25, British rail and underground services.
