Vacancy for a Clinical Lead Physiotherapist

Clinical Lead Physiotherapist – MS Charity – Surrey – Make a difference that counts

The Samson Centre is a small charity focused on improving the lives of people with MS. We pick up where the NHS cannot give support and offer so much more.  We offer traditional and holistic support throughout the MS journey.  Our members come to the Centre in Guildford regularly so, over time, by witnessing the improvements in physical and mental well-being, you will appreciate the difference that your skills and also those of your team will have made to so many people.   At present, MS is an incurable condition and so we are always looking for new ways to improve the lives of our members as well as their families. As lead physio you will be central to developing new approaches whether through Pilates, kayaking, oxygen therapy, tai chi and bespoke gym/weight training regimes, to name but a few of the treatments we currently offer.

There are leadership, management, learning, development and clinical aspects to this role. You will be leading a small team of physiotherapists, rehab assistants and gym instructors and also working with volunteers. We have close connections with Surrey and Brighton Universities and take physiotherapy students on placement.

We are looking for someone with experience of MS/neuro rehab who will probably be at the NHS Band 8a (or equivalent) to work 18 to 24 hours per week. Clinical expertise in treating people with neurological conditions is essential but should be allied with a willingness to continue to learn and develop. Giving members time and empathy are as important as imparting and sharing your experience with your work colleagues in this ever-evolving field.

Hours can be flexible, and salaries are linked to NHS bandings.
