About the Job

Are you passionate about what you do? Do you have the drive to make a difference to people’s lives?
If so, look no further as this could be the job for you.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a MSK Outpatient Physiotherapist to join our Physiotherapy team at the Buckinghamshire Musculoskeletal Integrated Care Service (MusIC) in Buckinghamshire on a bank basis. MusIC provides an outpatient clinical assessment and treatment service for patients presenting with musculoskeletal conditions.

There are close working relationships with the whole clinical team, including Extended Scope Practitioners (ESP’s), Specialist Musculoskeletal GPs, and diagnostic service staff.

We offer regular department in-service training, funding for external clinical courses, and an excellent supportive learning environment in order to continually develop you own personal learning and CPD.
We also offer a structured training and mentoring programme in order to develop to Extended Scope Practitioner level.

We are based in 8 modern treatment facilities, with high quality equipment, throughout Buckinghamshire. We are specifically looking for someone who is able to work at Aylesbury or Chalfont St. Peters.

Travel between sites is not compulsory as part of this role and we can be flexible as to which location would be most suitable. Furthermore, there is no on-call or compulsory weekend work to allow for a strong work life balance.

Within this job, you will be responsible for:
• Providing physiotherapy assessment, diagnosis and treatment to a combination of both spinal & peripheral GP referred patients.
• Managing the full patient pathway including onward referral to secondary care, if required. To do this, we will support you in the ordering of diagnostics, including MRI, X-ray and ultrasound.
