Complex Assessment and Liaison Team (CALS team) & Complex Assessment Unit (CAU)

Band 6 Physiotherapist- Full time, permanent position. Post due to commence June 2020.

North Bristol NHS Trust is planning to expand the multidisciplinary complex assessment and liaison service. The CALS team provides detailed assessment of older people that have complex care needs, providing early rehabilitation and undertaking complex discharge planning/transfers of care.

We are looking for an enthusiastic practitioner who will work as part of a highly regarded, established team consisting of Occupational therapists, Physiotherapists, Consultant Geriatricians, Advanced Nurse Practitioners and an Assistant Practitioner within the setting of a complex assessment unit. The post holder will be required to have excellent communication skills both within the team and when working alongside our CAU colleagues, social care practitioners and in accessing the wider community services.

Experience of working with Frail older adults is essential and we would expect the successful applicant to be confident to complete a comprehensive geriatric assessment and deliver tailored interventions. We are looking for someone who has developed their clinical skills within the Frailty setting and has expanded their role and understanding to deliver the best care possible.

CAU is a short stay medical unit for complex older people that has been praised for its multi-disciplinary working and number of associated discharges. The post holder would therefore benefit from having existing knowledge of (or will have support in learning) NBT discharge processes, discharge to assess frameworks and services that are available within the hospital and community to facilitate a timely discharge/transfer of care.

We encourage our therapists to develop their skills and have an active programme of peer review. Alongside NBT statutory and mandatory training packages we offer regular in-service training sessions and opportunities for external study as identified at regular supervision sessions/1:1’s.

This is an exciting time to work within a modern healthcare setting. NBT provides patients and staff with state of the art facilities promoting delivery of exceptional healthcare.
