We are recruiting for a Senior Paediatric Physiotherapist to provide client-centred and evidence-based assessments, treatment and discharge planning to a varied paediatric caseload, mostly musculoskeletal, neurological and developmental patients.
The caseload may include patients with respiratory or complex needs, and you will be responsible for equipment fitting, as well as ongoing staff training. You will receive referrals for both inpatients and outpatients from the ward, consultants and GPs as well as via other external routes.
This role requires you to be a competent and keen paediatric physiotherapist with the ability to undertake all aspects of your clinical duties as an autonomous practitioner and establish and maintain efficient communication within the MDT to ensure a holistic and complete duty of care.
What you’ll do:

- Work flexibly during the week to accommodate before and after school appointments for patients, within reason. You will have an opportunity to participate in the ad-hoc paediatric weekend service.
- Establish and maintain efficient communication within the multi-disciplinary team (both internal and external). This includes verbal, non-verbal or written communication, both in expression and active listening, to facilitate accurate comprehension of information.
- Practise as an autonomous and accountable professional using reflective practise and clinical reasoning in undertaking specialist assessment in order to provide an individualised treatment programme for each patient.
What you’ll bring:
- Degree/Diploma in Physiotherapy
- HCPC Registration
- Proven experience in paediatric MSK and orthopaedics
- Good timekeeping but prepared to be flexible
