Our client in Kent is looking for a Physiotherapist to join their team
Our client is looking for a self-motivated, passionate and committed First Contact Practitioner to join their vibrant, innovative and dynamic organisation. This is an exciting post that places the successful candidate at the heart of the Primary Care multidisciplinary team. You will need advanced frontline screening, triage and assessment skills and will provide the very best care to patients, which will include onward referring for diagnostics, in line with evidence-based pathways. You will be located within GP practices and operate as the first point of contact for patients with a range of MSK conditions.
The FCP position suits a senior MSK Physiotherapist or an already established First Contact Physiotherapist who is looking to extend their clinical skills and grow within an organisation. The successful candidate will be expected to provide clinical expertise, leadership and be able to collaborate within the greater MDT setting. They can create a flexible package to accommodate different working needs and would consider full or part time positions.
Our client uses state-of-the-art technology to deliver its services, including integrated medical record systems, online CPD sessions and digital technology for rehabilitation.

This provides a well-rounded, robust, supportive and patient-centred environment. They make a significant financial investment to your training and provide an annual training budget to facilitate your development and training needs.
They have a passion for mentorship and pay close attention to the mentor/mentee relationship. Their clinicians are trained to teach GP trainees on nationally accredited GP training programmes and they take an active role in training undergraduate Physiotherapists. Their unrelenting drive for innovation means that they are part of the Regional Spinal Network, Health Innovation Network, and a variety of University Research Programmes.
They have worked with injured veteran athletes at the prestigious golf event, The Simpson Cup, and they are the principal Physiotherapy provider for a charity expedition for a double amputee who is climbing Mount Everest.
