DO YOU HAVE A DESIRE TO HELP YOUR LOCAL COMMUNITY?

If yes, then why not come and work for a local charity.

Your local hospice, The Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House is looking for exceptional people.

We are looking to recruit the following:

Physiotherapist
Salary: £12.88 p/h plus 11.6% holiday pay
Hours: No guaranteed hours

We are looking for exceptional Physiotherapists to join our bank and become part of our amazing team. Why not make a difference and join our Day Therapy team to work alongside our multidisciplinary team. 

Rehabilitative Palliative Care integrates rehabilitation, enablement, self-management and self-care into the holistic model of palliative care.  The specialist physiotherapy post has been developed to promote and embed this patient-centred approach with patients attending Day Therapy and those who receive end of life care at home.  The purpose is to support people to live fully until they die.

The Day Therapy Service will see people at all stages of their health journey, from diagnosis where there can be uncertainty over prognosis, through to deteriorating advanced disease.  Most interventions will occur in the department, but there is a recognised need to complement existing community therapy services in providing support at home, particularly with breathlessness and anxiety management.  The Hospice at Home service provides care and support for people recognised to be in their final 6-8 weeks of life.  The physiotherapist will provide interventions at home to support, as required, those people with difficult symptoms such as breathlessness and distress, and in supporting functional difficulties.

You will be working within the Day Therapy team, consisting of an Occupational Therapist, Complementary Therapist, Nurses and team coordinator/administrator. You will be directly responsible to the Day Therapy Lead, and will work closely with the wider multi-disciplinary team within the integrated palliative care team based at NHTH.

You will be required to work independently and as part of the multidisciplinary team applying clinical skills in physiotherapy including assessment, treatment planning, intervention and evaluation, which includes individual and group orientated approaches.  This will be appropriate to the patients’ needs and stage of illness.

You will contribute to the evaluation and continued development of the therapies service, and will provide advice and education on all aspects of physiotherapy management and rehabilitation for patients, relatives and health care professionals, both within the organisation and occasionally to the wider community.

Our modern building is located in peaceful and picturesque grounds and offers plenty of free parking.
