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.


Witney’s Emergency Multi-disciplinary Unit is a pioneering service based at Witney Community Hospital and serves the wider community of Oxfordshire. Patients are typically sub-acutely ill and most receive ambulatory care (90%), providing patients with assessment and treatments close to home in order to promote independence and avoid hospital admission where possible. The multi-disciplinary team comprises of doctors, nurses, paramedics, a physiotherapist, an occupational therapist and a social worker.

The Physiotherapist role advertised is to work within this specialist MDT providing a mixture of general and specialist assessments and rehabilitation. We aim to empower patients to manage their conditions effectively and maximise their potential to reach their goals of self-management, access to their environment and return to previous occupations and involvement in the community.

The EMU has a small number of beds within Witney Community Hospital and you would be expected to work with the patients on the ward and within the Unit. Therapists are also supported to carry out community visits to facilitate discharge planning and post-discharge to ensure continuity of care for patients seen in EMU.

We are looking for an enthusiastic Physiotherapist who can contribute towards the cross competency roles of the Therapy team within the unit, committed to the core
