Leicestershire health trust holds open day to attract physiotherapists

Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust (LPT) is hosting a physiotherapist recruitment open day at Loughborough Hospital tomorrow.

The event, which will aim to fill vacancies in the Trust’s community teams and community hospitals across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, comes as the Trust seeks nine band-5 physiotherapists to work in Leicester City, Melton and Coalville and Loughborough.

At the open day, therapists will be able to see how their skills could be applied in a community and mental health trust environment and visit areas where therapists treat patients, including the outpatients’ clinic and the ward at Loughborough Hospital.
Attendees will also be able to speak to managers, clinical leads and those who have recently joined LPT about working in other settings, including clinics, and in patients’ own homes – as some of the posts have rotations that include building experience in all these environments.
Interested applicants are asked to fill out an online application form so that, should a role be of interest, they have the opportunity to be interviewed on the day.
The open day takes place from 9.30am to 12.30pm tomorrow, Saturday 9 February.
