Barnstaple Alliance - Vacancies

Please check this site regularly to see new vacancies as they arise.

Are you an MSK First Contact Physiotherapist looking for a move to wonderful North Devon? Sea, moors, low house prices and great clinical networks, what more could you want?

We are looking for a First Contact Physiotherapist (FCP) to work across our network of four practices. You will be using expert triage, assessment and diagnosis to determine which clinical pathway will be most suitable for the patient. Our FCP will be the first point of contact, instead of a GP, for patients with musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions who need clinical assessment, diagnosis and management. Management would be through advice on self-management, injections or onward referral, not a course of physiotherapy with the postholder.

Non-medical prescribing and experience of referral pathways preferred.

Benefits include NHS Pension, Salary based on Skills, Qualifications and Experience equivalent to AfC Band 7 to 8a.

This is a brand new service for Barnstaple, which we plan to run in collaboration with the local Trust MSK teams.

The Barnstaple Alliance PCN is a network of four General Practitioner surgeries: Brannam, Fremington, Litchdon and Queens Medical Centres. Between us we provide care to 49,000 patients in the Barnstaple area. Whilst retaining our independent surgeries, we are working together on collaborative projects to improve and develop the healthcare services we offer to patients. You could be part of these exciting new developments.
