Stroke physiotherapist- Band 6
Our Community Stroke rehabilitation team in Enfield is looking for a band 6 physiotherapist with either proven stroke rehab skills or the motivation and drive to develop your stroke skills. The post holder would work within an established team of physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapist and rehabilitation assistants. We also work closely with our stroke Navigator, commissioned from Attend and social service colleagues, who provide enablement workers.
We see patients with newly diagnosed strokes, providing early supported discharge to HASU patients and community rehab to the patients discharged from local stroke inpatient beds.
We also see patients with residual stroke symptoms who may require review for some further multidisciplinary input, by self-referral or GP referral.
We are looking for an enthusiastic and energetic clinician, keen to work with us who may have had some previous stroke experience and also possibly experience of community working. Most importantly to be passionate about making a difference to patients and their families.
In return we can provide flexible work options, support for CPD and opportunities for personal development. You will be part of The Adult Community Therapies Service which includes Domiciliary Physiotherapy, Neuro rehab team, Adult SLT, Dietetics and Bone health and Fracture Liaison. The post holder will have an opportunity for rotation to inpatient and community Neuro Rehab team, in the future. We are exploring the possibilities to rotate with other B6 physios within the Trust in the field of neurology at inpatient rehab and community neuro covering wide range adult pathologies.
Enfield Health has a long history of managing the health needs of the diverse and multicultural population of this North London borough. We pride ourselves on integrated working, not only within the wider therapy team of which you will be part but also with other health professionals in acute and primary care, local authority and voluntary sectors.
Based on our main site at St Michaels Primary Care Centre close to Enfield town centre, not only do we provide a pleasant working environment, but with easy access to a range of local leisure facilities and with good transport links to London we offer an attractive relocation proposition.
