An opportunity has arisen for an experienced and enthusiastic physiotherapist to join us working within the respiratory team. This is a new static post and  will suit those who have completed their core rotations at band 5 and have some experience in core areas at a band 6 level, particularly in respiratory. The successful candidate will  need to have skills in the physiotherapy management of patients with multi-pathology on the Critical Care Complex who may present with multi-organ failure from any clinical speciality within the Trust.  This post will allow professional and personal development in the following areas – Respiratory In Patient Care, Pulmonary Rehabilitation, Respiratory Out Patients, Cystic Fibrosis, Critical Care Complex, General Medicine, and Intermittent Claudication Class.

As well as being part of a cohesive physiotherapy team you would also be working collaboratively with other members of the multidisciplinary team.

You will have opportunities to provide a leadership role clinically, educationally, professionally and managerially.

Continuous Professional Development is actively supported through an established appraisal system, in-service training and post graduate library facilities   

As post holder you will :

- assess, prioritise and manage own caseload of patients presenting to the Respiratory team in the areas mentioned before, determine clinical diagnosis and treatment indicated and maintain records as a legally autonomous practitioner.  Experience in Respiratory Outpatients, Pulmonary Rehabilitation and Intermittent Claudication Classes is desirable but not essential as in house training can be provided.

- train, supervise and monitor other physiotherapists, physiotherapy assistant practitioners, assistants and performance manage students.

- have an active role in the planning, development, coordination, delivery and evaluation of the physiotherapy service provided to patients within  and out-reaching from the Norfolk and Norwich University NHS Foundation Trust.
