    Post holders will take a lead role in mentoring and supporting all disciplines of staff within the team and with clear direction and the full support of managers within the combined organisations, will be instrumental in developing and embedding a culture of seamless working across secondary and community services.

    In order to successfully undertake this role you must be an experienced Physiotherapist. You will need to possess excellent leadership and mentorship skills and have a robust knowledge of community/intermediate care services. You will be an effective team player, inspirational, flexible, adaptable, enthusiastic and fully committed to the development of patient focused, clinically effective and efficient services.
