Blatchford is a world leading rehabilitation provider with clinical expertise in prosthetics, orthotics, special seating and wheelchairs. We design and manufacture the multi award-winning Endolite range of lower limb prostheses and provide clinical services to the NHS, military and patients internationally. With 128 years of innovation and expertise behind us, we produce the world’s most advanced microprocessor artificial limbs.

We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced neuro or musculoskeletal Physiotherapist to join our multi-disciplinary clinical team in Sheffield and specialise in scoliosis management. The role is as part of a multi-disciplinary team who provide an exceptional clinical service to our paediatric and adult private patients and it really is an excellent opportunity for you to develop and enhance your career in a highly specialist field.

Responsibilities of the Physiotherapist:

  • Undertaking initial face to face patient assessments and regularly reviewing patients progress
  • Designing progressive rehabilitation programs in the management of scoliosis
  • Designing, implementing and monitoring home rehabilitation programs
  • Maintaining excellent medical notes which demonstrate the patients’ development

Requirements of the Physiotherapist:

Previous experience of managing scoliosis is advantageous, although not essential. ‘Schroth- best practice’ training is a requirement, however if you don’t have this qualification yet, we will support and fund this as part of your initial training. Applicants must be degree qualified in Physiotherapy and be HCPC registered.

We are ideally looking for an experienced, proactive neuro or musculoskeletal Physiotherapist who would like to learn and develop within a specialist field. The successful candidate will be organised and proactive, with the ability to apply their theoretical, evidence-based knowledge in a practical and ‘exercise focussed’ way. You will be able to work independently but also able to work effectively as part of a multi-disciplinary team and you will look to use your knowledge and experience to further improve and develop our growing service. You will have excellent communication skills and be comfortable working with both adult and paediatric patients, to help them to get busy living!    

 

Job type: Fixed term maternity cover contract, with the possibility of permanent employment thereafter. Initially 2 days (including Friday)/ 10 hours per week, commencing in September. Or full time and permanent for candidates who are experienced or have an interest in wheelchair services in addition to scoliosis management.
