Join us and become part of the most engaged workforce of any NHS trust in England, according to the latest national NHS Staff Survey results – for the second year running.

You will be joining a dynamic and forward-looking organisation in the heart of the capital where you can develop your career and broaden your horizons.

We think you will enjoy working for us but you don’t have to take our word for it – 79% of staff who took part in the latest national NHS Staff Survey would recommend Guy’s and St Thomas’ as a place to work.

We have two posts available for enthusiastic and motivated Physiotherapists to join our specialist learning disability health team working with clients who have a diverse range of conditions and presentations. You will provide assessment and treatment including providing 24 hour posture management for people with a complex physical disability. The post holders will be part of a multi-disciplinary team comprising Occupational Therapists, Speech and Language Therapists and Nurses and will work closely with carers; family; Day Services, psychology and social care agencies. The post holders will benefit from being part of a group of 8 Physiotherapy staff working in Learning Disabilities across the boroughs of Lambeth Lewisham and Southwark. These posts will be based in the Lewisham or Lambeth Team.

Structured continuing professional and personal development is available, presenting an ideal opportunity for a physiotherapist with good clinical skills and knowledge, to broaden their experience within a supportive environment. Experience of working with this client group in a community team setting is desirable but applicants with other relevant experience will be considered. Direct clinical supervision will be provided by a Band 7 Highly Specialist Physiotherapist.
