Norfolk and Norwich Hospital is a leading teaching hospital with world-class facilities.  Physiotherapy is playing an instrumental role in the exciting developments that are happening and our team is growing.  Our patients rate us highly on quality of care and having friendly approachable staff. We are looking for like-minded individuals to join us and take advantage of the opportunities we have on offer. 

We have specialist band 6 posts available within our brand new Neurosciences Centre (Stroke and Neurology), Acute and Older Persons Medicine, Respiratory, Critical Care, Cancer and Palliative Care.  You will be supported to assist in the development of your colleagues, help shape services and take on more responsibility. 

We also welcome applications from individuals with some band 5 experience, who do not yet possess all the experience and competencies required for a band 6 post.  We will appoint these successful applicants initially as band 5s, and will support them to meet agreed competencies in a defined time-frame in order to be up-lifted to a band 6. 

I’m developing in leadership and teaching as a band 6 and getting to treat and progress a varied caseload.  The in-house training with the team has been excellent, helping me to develop my assessment and treatment skills.’
