The Company:

My client is a long-established provider of Wheelchair & Community Equipment Services to the NHS and Private Sector. They have nearly 35 years’ experience in these sectors and are market leaders and innovators in integrated Wheelchair Services, helping increase independence and choice for the people they serve. Their team provide a genuine caring, user-centric, and holistic approach that is tailored to each individual, who’s needs vary significantly.

The Role:

I am looking for a Band 6 Occupational Therapist, Clinical Scientist or Physiotherapist to join my client’s Integrated Wheelchair Service which undertakes assessment, engineering and approved repairs on wheelchairs.

You would be working from a service centre based in Huntingdon / Cambridgeshire and conduct assessments in clinic, people’s homes, day centres or schools within the area. You will provide a high quality, service user focused assessment and prescription of manual and powered wheelchairs to maximise function and independence by modifying standard equipment and prescribing appropriate pressure relief.

You will manage your own caseload of clients who have permanent wheelchair mobility needs and postural management requirements and will require knowledge of a range of medical conditions and physical disabilities. You will work within professional standards and clinical guidelines, promote best practice and undertake all aspects of clinical duties as an autonomous practitioner.

Having excellent interpersonal skills and a knowledge of a range of medical conditions and physical disabilities you will be supported in gaining skills in advanced clinical reasoning and problem solving, complex assessment, intervention and prescription of wheelchairs, seating and pressure relieving equipment.

As well as a competitive salary there are company pension contributions, company mobile phone and laptop, free on-site parking, 30 days holiday inclusive of bank holidays and a day off for your birthday.

This is an opportunity to enhance your own career over time. The successful candidate will receive professional guidance from the Clinical Lead and Team Manager and will be encouraged to develop to their maximum potential, in an environment that is fully supported and committed to ongoing development.

Change is coming to NHS wheelchair provision and you could be part of that change.

All employees can expect to receive on-going training and development in the form of new starter inductions, on the job training, in-house training and external training.

For this role you will be subject to an enhanced DBS disclosure check.
