Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is ideally situated just a forty five minute drive from Manchester. The Trust provides services to the 440,000 residents of Blackpool, Fylde & Wyre and North Lancashire, as well as specialist tertiary care for Cardiac and Haematology patients. We employ more than 6,500 staff, have approximately 900 beds and have a planned turnover in excess of £410m for 2017/2018.


As one of the United Kingdom’s largest coastal resort, Blackpool has plenty to offer its residents – it’s not just a good place to work; it’s a great place to live. In addition to its bustling centre and historic seafront, the town is world famous for its many attractions, including the famous Blackpool Tower. Blackpool also offers a number of scenic cycling routes round our local parks and across the surrounding countryside, as well as boasting panoramic views of the coast on its picturesque Promenade. Further afield, Blackpool also benefits from less than three-hour connections via rail to Edinburgh in the north and London in the south.


Our strategic vision for 2020 is:

As a high performing Trust, operating as part of an integrated care system, we will provide high quality, safe and effective care. This will be achieved in a financially sustainable way, through our skilled and motivated workforce”.

We have an exciting opportunity for a physiotherapist to join our Community Team based in Blackpool

Blackpool is one of several 'Vanguard Sites' in England, developing innovative and exciting approaches to health care in the community. You will have an opportunity to shape the therapy services that we offer in our neighbourhood. Therefore we are looking for a dynamic and creative individual with a passion for making a difference. This is a chance to develop existing skills but also to develop a broader range of skills to enhance your practice.

What can we offer you? You will be based with community occupational therapists, Community Nurses, Community Matron’s, Care Co-ordinators, Health and Wellbeing Support workers and Social Workers. We pride ourselves on our relationships within the neighbourhood and with other statutory and voluntary agencies. You will be supported and encouraged to use all your skills to allow yourself, the team and your patients to flourish.

The Physiotherapist role will consist of both community rehabilitation and a more responsive element that helps to support a wider caseload with long term conditions. There is plenty of opportunity to be involved in developing the wider neighbourhood workforce and assisting them to gain some basic Therapy knowledge.
