''A great place to be cared for; a great place to work''


Do you want to work for a Trust which

  • values inclusivity?
  • invests in you with ongoing in-service training, development and supervision from expertly trained clinical specialists?
  • is at the start of a transformational journey where collaboration between sector partners is core business?
  • values and invests in YOU?

If this sounds like you why not come and see what UHMBT, the country’s 7th most inclusive employer, has to offer. We are a multi-disciplinary team who would welcome you to join us.

We are looking for a Physiotherapist to join our Community Musculo-Skeletal Service to act as a First Contact Physiotherapist working in one of our Integrated Care Communities (ICC’s) and be based within GP practices in the Ulverston area. Therefore you must have the ability to work and travel to various sites across the Trust independent of public transport

This is an exciting development in the transformation of musculo-skeletal services in the Morecambe Bay area. You will work closely with GP colleagues, community MSK physiotherapy team and the iMSK orthopaedic triage service to assess patients who have self-referred to GP practice based Physiotherapy services. This post is for a 6 month period. Applications welcome for a fixed term employment period  or secondment opportunity.

Working together to deliver care to patients you will need to:

  • have completed a range of core rotations within the NHS as a physiotherapist  with a desire to develop your clinical skills further
  • demonstrate and evidence your own professional development
  • demonstrate your ability to work independently when necessary
  • Have a friendly and flexible attitude, which is patient focused and dedicated to quality care
  • develop close working relationships with colleagues in primary care and the wider MDT.

What will we offer you?

  • A supportive team environment which values the input of the team
  • A structured two-way appraisal process to support your ongoing development
  • In-house recognition schemes
  • A focus on employee involvement where your contribution is valued
  • Encouragement for your professional development
  • Opportunity to be part of our transformational programme of a fully integrated Musculo-Skeletal Service
  • Excellent location of our sites near the Lake District to support a healthy worklife balance

Anyone newly appointed to the trust will be subject to the completion of a satisfactory 6 month probationary period (this includes bank staff). This will give the new staff member an opportunity to become familiar with the role and working environment.
