Lets get going with the first #Physiotalk question of 2018....
physiotalk @physiotalk
To get us started... What issues have you experienced in recruitment at the moment? #Physiotalk

Evening all, happy new year, looking forward to discussions #Physiotalk
Joe Middleton @_JoeMiddleton
@physiotalk No supply, particularly at band 5 and 6 levels. New grads are mostly securing jobs in the new year/spring, meaning that posts can remain vacant for months, and months, and months. #physiotalk
Janet Thomas @JanetThomas47
@_JoeMiddleton @physiotalk We struggled with B6 earlier this year as well. #physiotalk
Rebecca Dunkerley @RebeccaTD
@physiotalk Attracting #physios to specialise in community rehab as they don’t tend to understand how amazing it is! It tends to be seen as boring or Physios don’t always understand the impact it can have #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
@_JoeMiddleton Are you getting no applicants at all - or just not meeting the criteria? #Physiotalk
Rebecca Dunkerley @RebeccaTD
@physiotalk @DrTherapies you might be interested in following #physiotalk on Recruitment tonight
Joe Middleton @_JoeMiddleton
@JanetThomas47 @physiotalk Been scraping through by the skin of our teeth for band 6s. About to have 75% of band 5 posts vacant, and 2 (maybe 3) unsuccessful attempts at recruiting #physiotalk
Paul_Chapman09 @PaulChapman09
@RebeccaTD @physiotalk Community Rehab is where you really develop your physio skills not boring rewarding #Physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
@_JoeMiddleton @JanetThomas47 Not good! Can anyone else say if they are finding the same issues? Would be good to get a picture if national or just local issues #Physiotalk
Joe Middleton @_JoeMiddleton
@physiotalk Very few applicants. Most are automatically rejected by NHS Jobs/staff services. They 1 or 2 that are left have not been meeting the standards expected. #physiotalk
Blaithín Hadjisophocleous @blaithin_h
@physiotalk @_JoeMiddleton In cases I've seen, not enough applicants which sometimes drives teams to employing people who don't meet all the essential criteria - manpower over quality? #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
@_JoeMiddleton Why automatically rejected? Do you not shortlist or is that central?? #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
@Blaithin_H @_JoeMiddleton Why are people not meeting essential criteria shortlisted? #Physiotalk
Naomi McVey 🐝 @NaomiMcVey
@_JoeMiddleton @physiotalk Are calendar cycles the only issue/barrier? Is competition from other local employers a factor too? How about retention? #physiotalk
Joe Middleton @_JoeMiddleton
@physiotalk We do shortlist, but applicants who do not have the necessary legal stuff to work here are automatically screened out (at least I assume that is what is happening!) #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
@RebeccaTD @Blaithin_H @_JoeMiddleton don't forget the hashtag :) #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
#physiotalk https://t.co/n51e5n9IYs
Ben Ellis @bendotellis
@physiotalk @_JoeMiddleton @JanetThomas47 From what I hear it’s hard work recruiting into traditionally easier to fill acute posts across most levels, and even harder again in community #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
What Band of qualified physio staff are you having most issues with for recruitment #physiotalk
Joe Middleton @_JoeMiddleton
@NaomiMcVey @physiotalk Our retention is generally excellent. Band 5s will either stay with us as band 6s, or will move on after 2+ years. Currently we seem to have no hope of recruiting until Spring, and then have to wait for the final year student to qualify in the summer! #physiotalk
Blaithín Hadjisophocleous @blaithin_h
@physiotalk @_JoeMiddleton In a desparate attempt to meet service needs and tackle waiting lists e.g. some teams unable to recruit band 7's end up recruiting band 6's etc leading to leaderless environments #notfun #physiotalk
Ben Ellis @bendotellis
@_JoeMiddleton @physiotalk Majority of our grads had jobs before qualifying, many had several options. Most that didn’t was down to personal choice over where they wanted to work (waiting for job to come up) or taking some time out. Same for last couple of years #physiotalk
Joe Middleton @_JoeMiddleton
@Blaithin_H @physiotalk I can understand this, but it is very bad practice. The governance implications are huge. #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
So reports of 5, 6 and 7 posts being difficult to fill - see poll I've just tweeted out so we can get a sense of whats is most difficult #physiotalk
RunningPhysio @tomgoom
RT @physiotalk: What Band of qualified physio staff are you having most issues with for recruitment #physiotalk
HelenTurner @helenturn86
@physiotalk Finding Band 5’s moving onto Band 6 posts MUCH quicker than in previous years, meaning more junior teams but also constant recruitment/vacancies #Physiotalk
Alex MacKenzie @AlexMacKenzie11
@physiotalk @_JoeMiddleton @JanetThomas47 We have struggled at B5 and B6 level. As soon as you recruit, others leave #Physiotalk
Ben Ellis @bendotellis
@Blaithin_H @physiotalk @_JoeMiddleton And once those posts are gone, they’re gone. Opportunities to actually have a career progression path get squeezed further #physiotalk
Joe Middleton @_JoeMiddleton
@bendotellis @physiotalk When I qualified (2005), it was a 'buyers' market, and competition for jobs was fierce. many of the people I trained with never got jobs, and had to move on to different careers. Complete reverse now. New grads hold the power!!! #physiotalk
Janet Thomas @JanetThomas47
I think most of our grads have got jobs as well - but equally I don't know of Band 5 posts being unfilled in my area either #Physiotalk
Joe Middleton @_JoeMiddleton
@sas1933 @physiotalk Yes, exactly. #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
@AlexMacKenzie11 @_JoeMiddleton @JanetThomas47 Leave the NHS or just move onto a new area? #Physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
We've started answering the next q - so I'll pose it now anyway! #Physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
Does this differ between grades? Is there enough new grads but you are struggling for Band 7 staff? #physiotalk
Chad Redgrave @chad_redgrave
How to retain experienced 6s who don't want traditional 7 roles? #Physiotalk
Alex MacKenzie @AlexMacKenzie11
@physiotalk Not enough new grads #physiotalk
Ben Ellis @bendotellis
@_JoeMiddleton @physiotalk (Assuming the NHS still exists in 3 years time with Hunt continuing as Health Sec!) #physiotalk
Joe Middleton @_JoeMiddleton
@physiotalk Band 7 vacancies come up less often, so there is usually a ready supply of people ready and waiting to step up. That being said, I am aware of some lager trusts (esp. in London) who have really struggled to recruit to band 7/8a posts. #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
a bit of a hashtag reminder! Remember to include #Physiotalk in all your tweets please
Shan Aguilar-Stone @sas1933
@_JoeMiddleton @bendotellis @physiotalk With respect what do you mean by power? #physiotalk still need to meet essential job criteria or no?
Blaithín Hadjisophocleous @blaithin_h
@physiotalk @AlexMacKenzie11 @_JoeMiddleton @JanetThomas47 Many leaving the NHS to go into private practice - morale can be quite low in some NHS Trusts with the decreasing funding and increasing pressures #physiotalk
Janet Thomas @JanetThomas47
@bendotellis @_JoeMiddleton @physiotalk Ahem - we don't all have Hunt as our health secretary! #Physiotalk
Emily Stowe @stowe_emily
@physiotalk Very few applicants for jobs in a specialist field outside the NHS (hospice setting) #physiotalk
KB @KBNeuroinfo
#physiotalk Gap at Band 6 level, limited resource
Joe Middleton @_JoeMiddleton
@physiotalk But yeah, not enough grads. The growth in physiotherapy as a profession (including the ever growing diversity of career paths) has increased demand, and supply it too far behind (and not responding quick enough) #physiotalk
Alex MacKenzie @AlexMacKenzie11
@chad_redgrave I think there are many more ways to be creative with roles. We have job-shares, split roles, variety of hours etc and different areas #physiotalk
Shan Aguilar-Stone @sas1933
@Blaithin_H @physiotalk @AlexMacKenzie11 @_JoeMiddleton @JanetThomas47 So how to make NHS more attractive #physiotalk
Ben Ellis @bendotellis
@_JoeMiddleton @physiotalk Possibly due to % of role that is often managerial at B7 these days? Would be interested to know if more clinical roles are easier to recruit to? #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
@KBNeuroinfo Yep - I've only just launched the poll and Band 6 is leading the way for recruitment issues! #Physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
@_JoeMiddleton i thin some North West Trusts struggling too #physiotalk
Joe Middleton @_JoeMiddleton
@sas1933 @bendotellis @physiotalk Of course, but the if they do meet the criteria, they will likely have the pick of who they want to work for. Trusts are having to sell (and incentivise) working for them so much more than a decade ago #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
So we can see difficulty is recruiting - lack of applicants seems to be an issue So onto retaining staff - next q coming up #Physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
What about retaining your staff – are they leaving (and why?) #Physiotalk
Alex MacKenzie @AlexMacKenzie11
@bendotellis @_JoeMiddleton @physiotalk Not necessarily #physiotalk
Paul_Chapman09 @PaulChapman09
@physiotalk @KBNeuroinfo Interesting fact 60% of RTP AHP including physio were working at B6 and above #physiotalk
Ben Ellis @bendotellis
@AlexMacKenzie11 @physiotalk The shortfall is something like 500 annually isn’t it based on workforce projections? @RobYeldham would know #physiotalk
Janet Thomas @JanetThomas47
@AlexMacKenzie11 @bendotellis @_JoeMiddleton @physiotalk Not in my experience either #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
@PaulChapman09 @KBNeuroinfo Ahead of the game - next q is about RTP :) #physiotalk
Joe Middleton @_JoeMiddleton
@physiotalk Indeed. @BTHTherapies had to go to Dubai to get staff! #physiotalk
Anya Lotay @AnyaPhysio1417
@physiotalk recruiting band 5s and 6s but them leaving to other jobs which are more desirable to them #physiotalk #recruitment
Shan Aguilar-Stone @sas1933
@bendotellis @_JoeMiddleton @physiotalk Boom and bust model long gone #physiotalk see info on CSP website re howamy physios we need to to join the profession each year. Sorry don't have link to hand
physiotalk @physiotalk
@_JoeMiddleton @BTHTherapies Do we know if that was a success? #Physiotalk
Ben Ellis @bendotellis
@sas1933 @Blaithin_H @physiotalk @AlexMacKenzie11 @_JoeMiddleton @JanetThomas47 Invest in it! #physiotalk
Anya Lotay @AnyaPhysio1417
@physiotalk minimal universities nearby the hospital despite it being a teaching hospital #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
@AnyaPhysio1417 Do most of you find that you recruit B5 who have been with you as a student on placement? #Physiotalk
Joe Middleton @_JoeMiddleton
@physiotalk @BTHTherapies I do believe it was. I'm told that Ireland has a surplus of physios, so we are considering exploring that as a potential supply #physiotalk
KB @KBNeuroinfo
Lots of varying opportunities within and outside traditional NHS available once experienced for Band 6s, they hold the power #physiotalk
Anya Lotay @AnyaPhysio1417
@physiotalk band 5s tend to stay but band 6, 7 and above appear to move to more specialised units #physiotalk
Paul_Chapman09 @PaulChapman09
@physiotalk @KBNeuroinfo Just warming up #physiotalk :)
Janet Thomas @JanetThomas47
@_JoeMiddleton @physiotalk @BTHTherapies We already have a few Irish physios but they tend to have qualified in Scotland in the first place #Physiotalk
Ben Ellis @bendotellis
@JanetThomas47 @_JoeMiddleton @physiotalk Haha! True. You’ll still feel the impact though. Hadrian’s wall can’t ptotect you from a Tory government completely!! #physiotalk

How to make the NHS more attractive to work in?... https://t.co/aPC0gWeKKn
Alex MacKenzie @AlexMacKenzie11
@bendotellis @sas1933 @Blaithin_H @physiotalk @_JoeMiddleton @JanetThomas47 Offer a variety of different working patterns to suit people. In Acute hospital we do have some staff working 12hr shifts (by choice), early start with early finish, evening work etc #physiotalk
Alex MacKenzie @AlexMacKenzie11
@JanetThomas47 @_JoeMiddleton @physiotalk @BTHTherapies We also have a number of North American students training here too, but they can’t stay due to visa restrictions #physiotalk
Sam Haworth-Booth @SamHBooth
@RebeccaTD @Blaithin_H @physiotalk @_JoeMiddleton Completely agree. The wrong post for the person can be demoralising for that person - it's not just about geting bums on seats #physiotalk
kelly turner @kellyvturner81
@physiotalk Big shortfall in band 6s at the moment. Especially struggling to attract external band 6s. #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
@AlexMacKenzie11 @JanetThomas47 @_JoeMiddleton @BTHTherapies Do you know what the restrictions are - as @BTHTherapies just recruited from abroad #Physiotalk
Ben Ellis @bendotellis
@JanetThomas47 @AlexMacKenzie11 @_JoeMiddleton @physiotalk Thanks, interesting what motivates people to go for jobs or not. My partner top of B6 now, part-time, what’s the incentive to take a B7 role? #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
RT @bendotellis: @JanetThomas47 @AlexMacKenzie11 @_JoeMiddleton @physiotalk Thanks, interesting what motivates people to go for jobs or not…
physiotalk @physiotalk
So - onto the final part of the 3Rs return to practice #Physiotalk
kelly turner @kellyvturner81
@physiotalk As we push towards 7 day service and longer shifts, we are seeing staff leave for jobs which are mon- fri. #physiotalk
Ben Ellis @bendotellis
@sas1933 @_JoeMiddleton @physiotalk I think we’re 500 odd shy if I remember correctly. But s number of courses have increased numbers this year and some will again next & with several new courses coming on stream there will be more grads in 2-3 years #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
How about return to practice – do you have many staff that have decided to return to practice after a career break? #Physiotalk
Alex MacKenzie @AlexMacKenzie11
@physiotalk @JanetThomas47 @_JoeMiddleton @BTHTherapies It depends where from abroad and what their visa is. From EU it is fine. Outwith there is the rule about needing to earn over £30k pa etc #physiotalk
Paul_Chapman09 @PaulChapman09
@physiotalk National Programme has 30 interested in returning so far #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
@BTHTherapies @_JoeMiddleton Linked to this tweet @AlexMacKenzie11 #Physiotalk
Alex MacKenzie @AlexMacKenzie11
@physiotalk In the past 18 months we have had 3 - one started RTP today #Physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
@PaulChapman09 Do you have to go through the national programme (is that NHS England?) #Physiotalk
Ben Ellis @bendotellis
@sas1933 @_JoeMiddleton @physiotalk If the demand then drops (maybe we have a deep recession after Brexit requiring swingeing cuts to health say) then we’ll be back supplying more than the demand! The economy is always cyclical and we are in hoc to it #physiotalk
Paul_Chapman09 @PaulChapman09
@AlexMacKenzie11 @physiotalk are they part of the national programme?#physiotalk
Joe Middleton @_JoeMiddleton
@bendotellis @sas1933 @physiotalk By which time, existing posts will have been downgraded to B4 or just cut, as they were vacant for so long, and services have 'coped'; so there will be grads who can't get jobs! #physiotalk
Janet Thomas @JanetThomas47
@bendotellis @sas1933 @_JoeMiddleton @physiotalk It didn't seem to be like this in the past though? When I qualified in the mid 80s seemed pretty equal supply and demand #Physiotalk
Naomi McVey 🐝 @NaomiMcVey
@_JoeMiddleton @physiotalk @BTHTherapies longer term would physiotherapy apprenticeships help 'grow your own' supply? #physiotalk
Chad Redgrave @chad_redgrave
Any particular specialties that have biggest recruitment / retention issues? #physiotalk

Joe Middleton @_JoeMiddleton
@NaomiMcVey @physiotalk @BTHTherapies Yes. Potentially. #physiotalk
Sam Haworth-Booth @SamHBooth
@physiotalk I can foresee problems with numbers for band 7 posts over he next few years as first contact development spreads. I'm not sure that there has been enough training placements commissioned to fulfill the requirements #physiotalk

@physiotalk No. We tried supporting someone who was RtP, but were not overly confident in the @The_HCPC 's requirements and guidance #physiotalk
Alex MacKenzie @AlexMacKenzie11
@chad_redgrave Our particular areas of difficulty are remote and rural and mental health, but also lack of numbers to general rotations #Physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
@bendotellis @JackAChew I thought that when I tweeted it! Think recruit, retain and return are slightly different though.... #Physiotalk
Paul_Chapman09 @PaulChapman09

Naomi McVey 🐝 @NaomiMcVey
@JanetThomas47 @bendotellis @sas1933 @_JoeMiddleton @physiotalk i think there are a number of us who have looked for & moved to different, more flexible roles in absence of these within clinical practice #physiotalk
Ben Ellis @bendotellis
@_JoeMiddleton @sas1933 @physiotalk You’re bang on. We’re very bad as a profession at protecting roles and career structures when we can’t recruit to them #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk

Naomi McVey 🐝 @NaomiMcVey

Rebecca Dunkerley @RebeccaTD
@NaomiMcVey @bendotellis @_JoeMiddleton @sas1933 @physiotalk There are pressures to justify vacant posts as Trusts are monitored on vacancy rates. Downgrading them or recruiting the ‘good enough’ candidates can create very complex working environments #physiotalk

@sas1933 #physiotalk I found it quite hard. Applied to several places. Only one replied. I worked as a volunteer to do my 30 days reregistration and self funded courses.
physiotalk @physiotalk
@RebeccaTD @NaomiMcVey @bendotellis @_JoeMiddleton @sas1933 absolutely- hence why so important to identify/document the range of risk & issues? #physiotalk
Joe Middleton @_JoeMiddleton
@PaulChapman09 @sas1933 I would argue that the vague and relatively limited requirements that @The_HCPC put on people returning to practice, makes it difficult to meet the standards required for many jobs #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
10 mins to go - onto the next question #Physiotalk
Chad Redgrave @chad_redgrave
What do we think about education and training of non physio extended skills at aidong retention? #Physiotalk
Ben Ellis @bendotellis
@SamHBooth @_JoeMiddleton @physiotalk No I meant management. Leadership’s fine (if wildly overused as a phrase these days!) it’s the management that turns many off (may just be speaking for myself here to be fair, but I was at a point where only progress route within Trust was more management, so I left) #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
What do you expect as on-going recruitment challenges (for those in the UK dare we mention Brexit here!) #Physiotalk
Paul_Chapman09 @PaulChapman09
@_JoeMiddleton @sas1933 @The_HCPC It works and is successful. Returnee declares competency just I will need to do in May 18 #physiotalk
Rebecca Dunkerley @RebeccaTD

And as a secondary question - how can we plan to avoid under or over supply of new grads... #Physiotalk
Ben Ellis @bendotellis
@physiotalk @RebeccaTD @NaomiMcVey @_JoeMiddleton @sas1933 Yes agree. Bizarrely in health we see hard-to-recruit-to roles as ideal for downbanding rather than needing additional incentive to recruit to! #physiotalk

@NaomiMcVey @bendotellis @SamHBooth @physiotalk Agree. However, when the bright-eyed and bushy-tailed Naomi started her first day as a qualified physiotherapist, did she have her sights set on a management role? (please say no, else you will ruin my point!!!) #physiotalk
Shan Aguilar-Stone @sas1933
@bendotellis @JanetThomas47 @_JoeMiddleton @physiotalk Another factor is NHS is not the only option, there are routes via research, social enterprises, charities, social care, let alone private and independent. The workforce graduate supply have many more options than previously #physiotalk

Our final few minutes - so time for one last question #Physiotalk
Pam Watkins @PWtherapist
@physiotalk @_JoeMiddleton @JanetThomas47 #physiotalk also having difficulty recruiting to posts . Band 5 Posts on constant re advert . Majority of CVs very poor when you do get any.
physiotalk @physiotalk
What have you done to promote recruitment and retention in your area? #Physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
@_JoeMiddleton @NaomiMcVey @bendotellis @SamHBooth errr - well... went to a policy meeting on back pain attended by the then minister of health when I was a student, loved service improvement from day 1 as a member of staff... #physiotalk
Alex MacKenzie @AlexMacKenzie11
@sas1933 @bendotellis @JanetThomas47 @_JoeMiddleton @physiotalk And workforce plans need to acknowledge that #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
I've certainly seen more posts promoted through Twitter for example #Physiotalk

@physiotalk Well thankfully our EU physios can stay post-Brexit. Ongoing challenges will continue to be mismatch in supply:demand, and the NHS becoming a less and less attractive option #physiotalk

@physiotalk I think new grads are reluctant to work in the NHS therefore even though the grads are there, they're not going into jobs! Lots of bad publicity about overworked underpaid staff probably has a lot to do with it. Need to find a way to make it more appealing. any ideas? #physiotalk
Joe Middleton @_JoeMiddleton
@physiotalk The NHS got a lot of mileage out of being the standard, expected career path for new physiotherapists. Not any more. #physiotalk
Ben Ellis @bendotellis
@SamHBooth @_JoeMiddleton @physiotalk It was certainly my experience as a B7 doing a job previously done by a B8 in order to avoid the undoing of 5 years of work developing a team! #physiotalk

@physiotalk Used social media. Hold B5 interviews in the university. Look at adapting new job roles if possible. Change rotations to include hard to recruit to areas #physiotalk

@_JoeMiddleton @physiotalk So how can the NHS rise to the challenge of being first choice? #physiotalk
Naomi McVey 🐝 @NaomiMcVey
@_JoeMiddleton @bendotellis @SamHBooth @physiotalk tbh I thought I was going to be a paediatric physio the whole time I was at uni, was only the influence of inspiring clinicians & commissioners that changed my mind once working #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
Keep answering the poll but B6 still in the lead! #physiotalk https://t.co/wFROfHnPQ5
Anya Lotay @AnyaPhysio1417
@sas1933 @bendotellis @JanetThomas47 @_JoeMiddleton @physiotalk More options seems to have led to less recruitment into NHS jobs, meaning NHS physio workforces are under staffed and under more pressure. could non-NHS services link up and support this gap in staff? is this feasible? #physiotalk
Joe Middleton @_JoeMiddleton
@physiotalk Workforce planning. Based on good science and data. Everything is predictable with enough data. #physiotalk
Naomi McVey 🐝 @NaomiMcVey
@_JoeMiddleton @bendotellis @SamHBooth @physiotalk ...i developed a real love for service & quality improvement, and young kids meant I needed flexible working - and fortunately that's led to some really interesting jobs #physiotalk
