f stroke rehabilitation is your passion, then working in acute stroke and the early supported discharge team could be the perfect career move for you.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, experienced Physiotherapist to join our well established stroke service at The Princess Royal Hospital in Telford, which is part of The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospitals NHS Trust.

Based in picturesque Shropshire, minutes from the M54 you will be working as an autonomous Physiotherapist within our inpatient team. The early supported discharge team provides a county wide service. You would be working in a well-established and supportive multidisciplinary team.

Providing Physiotherapy treatment to patients in their own homes is an essential part of the role, and so the successful candidate must hold a valid UK driving licence. We encourage use of trust vehicles for patient visits but therapists will also regularly need to use their own vehicle and mileage costs will be paid.

Successful candidates will also require skills to provide respiratory physiotherapy to patients on the stroke wards and across all acute services as part of a weekend and on call rota.   

As a team we are able to provide excellent line management and peer support, with regular team meetings, clinical supervision and opportunities for continuing professional development.

The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital is privileged to be one of only 5 Trusts in the Country to be selected to take part in an exciting improvement initiative. This involves working closely with the Virginia Mason Institute, a hospital in the USA, who develop organisations to have a culture of quality improvement.

We encourage prospective candidates to contact us for further information regarding this exciting opportunity. We welcome interested candidates to visit prior to their interview, if possible.
