Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, in partnership with the University of Buckingham, is a University Teaching Hospital; we conduct research and teaching on site to improve the care of our patients . The hospital is undergoing significant investment and development including a new surgical ward, a new main entrance (allowing expansion of A&E services), a new Academic Centre and a planned new Cancer Centre.
Milton Keynes is the fastest growing and most successful city in the country (visit http://www.destinationmiltonkeynes.co.uk/) for which we provide Emergency Medicine (including Paediatrics) from minor injury to major trauma, Critical Care, Cancer Services, General Surgery & Medicine, Women’s & Children Services (including Maternity, Paediatrics & Neonatal) and Renal Services.
This is a new post that has been developed within the Women’s and Men’s Health (WMH) physiotherapy team. We are looking for an enthusiastic and dynamic Band 6 physiotherapist, preferably with some experience in the field of Women’s Health. The ideal candidate will also have affiliate membership of POGP. Less experienced candidates will be considered, however a keen interest and desire to learn and develop new skills within a small team is vital.
Clinically you will be responsible for a mixed caseload of both obstetric and gynaecological (uro-gynae) patients from GP and Consultant referrals, mainly within an outpatient setting. We also treat male patients’ pre and post prostatectomy. There may also be opportunity to be involved with treating chronic pelvic pain patients.
There are daily visits to the maternity and labour wards treating obstetric patients. This necessitates excellent communication skills with the MDT. Confidence in giving group teaching to antenatal and gynaecological patients is also essential. You may also be involved in teaching an aquanatal class in the community.
The rapidly growing WMH team is extremely experienced and and works closely alongside the large, supportive and knowledgeable Outpatient physiotherapy team. Both have a keen drive for service development and evidence based practice, in order to provide an excellent service for patients. As a Band 6 you will be expected to play an active part in this development, alongside regular audit and teaching, both within the team and in a wider MDT capacity.
The successful applicant will be highly motivated, flexible and an innovative therapist. Excellent time management and organisational skills are essential and you should be able to work on your own initiative and as part of a team.
We can offer regular support, supervision and on the job training and strongly recommend candidates visit us prior to interview.
You must have current HCPC registration and a recognised qualification as a Physiotherapist and be able to demonstrate the skills you have acquired with successful completion of Band 5 rotations in a variety of clinical areas.
The closing date for applications is 16th August, interviews are due to take place on 3rd September.
