Specialist Physiotherapist in Spines/Orthopaedics
Due to an expansion in the spinal service at Great Ormond Street hospital, we are looking for a physiotherapist with established paediatric musculo-skeletal skills to join the Spinal and Orthopaedic multidisciplinary team. This post provides the opportunity to join an existing orthopaedic team and take a lead role in the assessment and treatment of paediatric patients presenting with spinal deformities in both the inpatient and outpatient setting.
You will collaborate with colleagues in the spinal multidisciplinary team as well as the wider orthopaedic team, within GOSH and externally to plan, deliver and evaluate all aspects of the patient journey. Good communication skills and excellent team working abilities are essential for this post.
This is a unique opportunity to experience specialist services whilst being part of an established wider physiotherapy team.
For further information about this post or to arrange an informal visit please contact Deborah Jackson, Clinical Specialist Physiotherapist via email ( Email address removed ) or on ( Phone number removed ) ext. 5144.
