Monday to Friday – 8:30 to 16:30

Salary: £30000 - £36000 per annum dependent on experience 

Post available from beginning of June 2020

Heather House is a nursing home for 16 young people living with severe, complex neurological disabilities and life limiting conditions, such as CLN3 (Juvenile Batten Disease).

We are looking for a Physiotherapist to work full time. You would be in charge of running the physiotherapy department and ensuring that all the individuals have person centred physiotherapy programmes in place.

At Heather House we provide physiotherapy sessions in the gym during the morning and hydrotherapy sessions during the afternoon.

In the gym we count with wheelchair’s accessible machines, such as a seated lever row, a lateral pull down and bikes; there is also a treadmill, a rowing machine and a trampoline that we regularly use for rebound therapy sessions.

The hydrotherapy pool is on site and it runs at 35-36 degrees to allow the individuals to enjoy being in the water.

All rooms have ceiling track hoists to enable access to everybody.

The physiotherapist will also be expected to attend orthotics and wheelchair’s appointments; be part of the senior management team; and participate in medical reviews/meetings.

This is a great opportunity for a physio who wants to spend time hands on with the individuals, as there is a good balance to combine the administration tasks with the therapy sessions.

For more information, please contact Annita Nicolau Torrent at Heather House on: 01189 817772

Interviews being conducted in March 2020.
