Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust is a newly integrated care organisation which aims to provide high quality, safe and effective health and social care at the right time, in the right place to support the people of Torbay and South Devon to live their lives to the full.

Our vision is a community where we are all supported and empowered to be as well and as independent as possible, able to manage our own health and wellbeing, and in our own homes.

The Intermediate Care Service will be integral to ensuring that this statement of purpose is delivered to our communities. For staff this gives unequalled scope for joint working, skill sharing and learning in a supportive environment.

Our continually developing Intermediate Care Services have an excellent opportunity for enthusiastic, forward-thinking full time Intermediate Care Physiotherapists in the Moor to Sea Zone.

The work will include developing an Intermediate Care Service which facilitates crisis management in the community, prevention of hospital admissions, quicker discharge from hospital and supports people to remain as independent as possible at home. Patients are seen within the most appropriate setting; at home and in intermediate care placements in nursing and residential care homes.

The post holder will be well supported by senior staff, as well as by the wider multi-disciplinary team, which will include medical support. There are excellent CPD training opportunities, including training from the South Devon Health Services training and development team, Clinical Interest Groups and peer support.

Please note that we do offer Skype interviews if necessary.

NO Agencies or Canvassers.
