Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust has been rated as Good by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

We are a responsive and innovative Foundation Trust that places our values of Caring, Safe and Excellent at the heart of everything we do. We take great pride in our staff and believe that investing in you is key to us achieving our vision of outstanding care delivered by outstanding people.

We work with a wide range of partner organisations to deliver care and support to people in their own homes and from a number of hospitals and community bases. We focus on delivering care as close to home as possible.


Are you an enthusiastic and motivated Physiotherapist looking for a new opportunity within community services, then this could be the post for you!!

We are looking for a Physiotherapist who is ready to develop their clinical practice and managerial skills within an innovative, friendly and dedicated team or who is already experienced in these areas.

The successful applicant will be part of a multidisciplinary team. They will be expected to manage a caseload of patients referred to the service and to assess and treat people in their own homes.

The Community Therapy Service aims to provide high quality, responsive therapy services working as an integral member of the Integrated Locality Team.  Working closely with other multi-disciplinary team members, social services and voluntary organisations for adults with a wide range of complex physical impairments and mental health conditions.

As a band 6 the successful applicant will assist in the supervision and training of physiotherapy students, rehabilitation assistants and be involved in teaching of multidisciplinary staff. They will be supported in gaining knowledge and understanding of the wider physiotherapy service and other relevant services in the locality to ensure appropriate transfer of care of patients on discharge from caseload and to ensure for best and safe practice. They will have evidence of relevant broad post graduate experience, preferably including in the community. They will be able to organise their own travel arrangements to meet the needs of the service and operate as a mobile worker to maximise our ability to meet the demands of the service.

The Community Therapy Service is a seven-day service; therefore some weekend working will be expected.

Community Therapy is at the forefront of current government initiatives to deliver more healthcare out of acute hospitals and closer to home with the aim of providing better care for patients.
