The caseload for the Physiotherapist in this position will include rehabilitation with people post stroke and with other neurological conditions. There will also be work with older adults with more complex health conditions and, in future, injury related rehabilitation.

You will have excellent communication and time-management skills, enjoy working within a team, and be able to develop positive relationships with a variety of hospital based and primary care professionals.
