An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Physiotherapist to join the Integrated Community Rehab Team. The Team is multi professional and covers both in patients and community patients, supporting with Long Term Conditions, Early Discharges from hospital and Admission Avoidance thus preventing unnecessary Acute Hospital admissions.

This post offers a rotation between the wards within the community hospitals and also the community setting.

Awareness of the effects of ill health and the ageing process and a basic level of IT literacy are an essential requirement.

The post is based in the East Dorset Locality; the post holder will need to have the ability to travel by car as they will be required to monitor patients in their own homes and other community settings, as well as clinics.

As a key member of the team you will find the experience challenging, rewarding and varied.
