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”.


A vacancy has arisen for a Band 6 Physiotherapist to join our in-patient Orthopaedic trauma team.  You will be based primarily on wards 34 and 35 and be involved in not only the immediate post-operative management of patients but you will be expected to liaise closely with staff and begin appropriate rehabilitation.

You will be required to work closely with other members of the Multidisciplinary Team including orthopaedic Consultants, Occupational theapists, nursing staff and the Hospital Discharge Team. It is expected that part of the role would involve collaborative working with non medical and medical consultant colleagues in ensuring all patients care pathways are adhered to.  

You will need to have an enthusiastic approach, be forward thinking and have a problem-solving approach to patient management.  The ability to work within a fast paced and pressured environment is essential, along with having excellent communication and interpersonal skills, and demonstration of the ability to support other team members.

 We are committed to CPD, clinical supervision, clinical governance and flexible working.  You will be supported in your job role with an individualized job plan.
