Ok - lets get going with our first question of the night #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
Q: How do I write my CV or statement of support? What to put in and what to leave out! #physiotalk
Chris Smith @Alliedhealthwfs
@RoyalFreeMSK @physiotalk Welcome! Glad you are here 👍🏼 #physiotalk
Emma Garratt @Em_Garratt
I’m Emma, Clinical Lead Physio in the Stroke Rehab Service @OxfordHealthNHS ...intrigued to see the discussions on this topic! #Physiotalk

@Em_Garratt @OxfordHealthNHS We're hoping to get some interactions between those preparing for interviews and those interviewing... #physiotalk
Ian Tyrrell @IanTyrrell5
@physiotalk Read the person spec and job description and write how you meet each aspect. Use placement experiences to evidence. #physiotalk
David Williams 🌈 @beardedPT
@IanTyrrell5 @physiotalk Allright duck 😉 #physiotalk
Emily Stowe @stowe_emily
@physiotalk I hate reading through CVs which have long lists of copy and pasted job descriptions that are irrelevant to the current role. Drives me crazy! Be succinct, keep to the point #physiotalk
Janet Thomas @JanetThomas47
@IanTyrrell5 @physiotalk Check essential and desirable criteria - what do you meet and how can you evidence #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
@stowe_emily How many pages (max) would you expect for a CV - just one? #physiotalk
Meesh @meeshr93
@physiotalk My first #physiotalk! Final year MSc physio student at Brighton Uni @BrightPhysios
physiotalk @physiotalk
@meeshr93 @BrightPhysios Welcome! #physiotalk
Caroline Slater @CarolinePhysio1
Hello all! I’m a second year student at UCLAN. Hoping for lots of tips tonight. #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
So - how many of you would put headings in your CV / statement of support that were linked to job spec? #physiotalk
Emily Stowe @stowe_emily
@physiotalk Could cope with 2 if relevant info. Also, don't reduce text down to 9 point to get it into 1 page, recruiters aren't stupid and will see straight through it!! #physiotalk Always interested in what makes you different from the other applications
RFH MSK Physio @RoyalFreeMSK
@physiotalk Check essential and desirable criteria - do you meet it? Furthermore can you support this!! #physiotalk
Chris Smith @Alliedhealthwfs
@JanetThomas47 @IanTyrrell5 @physiotalk Absolutely. Best keep it short and sweet with things like MSK, Neuro being added. Most managers will know how the department operates so no need to go in to too much details! #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
@RoyalFreeMSK Definitely! Need to demonstrate how meet the criteria rather than just state that you do #physiotalk
Ian Tyrrell @IanTyrrell5
@physiotalk In statement have never put headings (maybe that’s where I’ve been going wrong) but have tended to use examples of how I have met each portion of the job spec. #physiotalk
Emily Stowe @stowe_emily
@physiotalk Also, remember that the text on your person spec/CV is all that I know about you. I can't assume anything. I will just tick your info off against person spec/JD. Advertised recently, essential criteria was car driver, only 2 applicants of 22 actually mentioned this #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
@IanTyrrell5 Suggested here https://t.co/zOLlld0Nzw Do others think they would like this? #physiotalk
Emma Garratt @Em_Garratt
@physiotalk @stowe_emily Quantity depends on the quality. 1-2 pages of quality is fine but 1-2 pages of waffle you’re wasting your time! Use clear punchy language, no exceedingly long sentences or repetitive descriptors. Give clear and relevant examples and let these do the talking #Physiotalk
Chris Smith @Alliedhealthwfs
@IanTyrrell5 @physiotalk It’s a good idea, especially when it comes to highlighting placement locations. Some managers like to see certain skills learnt from some hospitals, especially if it’s specialist! #physiotalk
RFH MSK Physio @RoyalFreeMSK
@hannahmbarbour @physiotalk Very simple but important point! #physiotalk
Emma Garratt @Em_Garratt
@IanTyrrell5 @physiotalk Can’t say I’ve ever seen headings used but if used appropriately can’t see why not #Physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
A few tweets coming through without the hashtag - a reminder to include #physiotalk in all your tweets
Chris Smith @Alliedhealthwfs
@RoyalFreeMSK @physiotalk 100% We do see quite a lot of blanket CVs being sent with generic terminology! #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
@Em_Garratt @stowe_emily So - what would be waffle?! #physiotalk
Emily Stowe @stowe_emily
@physiotalk @IanTyrrell5 If it makes it easier to find info I wouldn't mind. Can be difficult to fish through info if it's all mingled into a long statement. Certainly wouldn't put me off #physiotalk
Ian Tyrrell @IanTyrrell5
@physiotalk Depends on what type of shortlisting software you use! In my last trust probably would have been helpful. Personally reading a personal statement I want to know why you want to work at a trust and what inspires you as a physio and what you’ve learned so far #physiotalk
Emma Garratt @Em_Garratt
@RoyalFreeMSK @hannahmbarbour @physiotalk Tough balance though, as personal specs can be very repetitive with huge long lists of ‘character attributes’ which are difficult to demonstrate in any way other than a list!! #physiotalk
Janet Thomas @JanetThomas47
@IanTyrrell5 @physiotalk Shortlisting software?! #physiotalk
Janet Thomas @JanetThomas47
@Alliedhealthwfs @RoyalFreeMSK @physiotalk And cut and pasted with wrong location etc! #physiotalk

Lets move on from CVs to the interview then.. Next question coming up #physiotalk
Emma Garratt @Em_Garratt

Hannah Barbour @hannahmbarbour
@physiotalk Prepare for clinical questions in each area the role will cover and don’t be afraid to admit your limitations and who you would turn to for support if you didn’t know #physiotalk
Emma Garratt @Em_Garratt
@physiotalk Look at trust core values, as a band 5 expect questions from each core area, have a couple of clinical examples which you know in detail and can use in your answers, don’t forget the mandatory training side of things e.g safeguarding, documentation, duty of candour #Physiotalk
Chris Smith @Alliedhealthwfs
@JanetThomas47 @hannahmbarbour @physiotalk Spot on. The managers know a good Physio when they see one. I would even go as far to say that personality is equally as important as the knowledge and skill! #physiotalk

Ian Tyrrell @IanTyrrell5
@physiotalk I’m going to abstain from this. Reason you can have the best clinical knowledge but be a pretty poor physio but you can also have a lack of knowledge but the potential for growth. It’s difficult to see in an interview and difficult to mark with hr requirements. #physiotalk

physiotalk @physiotalk
So - lets move on.. Not sure if this next question should have been before the ones about applying! #physiotalk
Ian Tyrrell @IanTyrrell5
@physiotalk I think so. Sat on many band 5 interviews and thought I could work with this person, and the exact opposite. But often HR determined scoring systems doesn’t meet what a potential good physio is! #physiotalk
Chris Smith @Alliedhealthwfs
@physiotalk @IanTyrrell5 That’s the trouble, it’s a skill within itself! #physiotalk
Mari @mariand84
@physiotalk Show interest in the area, show that you are eager to learn and that you want to stay updated with new research #physiotalk

Chris Smith @Alliedhealthwfs
@IanTyrrell5 @physiotalk Did the HR teams give any valid reasons after the interview. It’s a very important thing to get if (in the worst case scenario) you don’t get the post #physiotalk

ema swingwood @emaroids1
@physiotalk Sorry I’m late!!! #physiotalk
Chris Smith @Alliedhealthwfs
@physiotalk It’s fine 👍🏼 #physiotalk
Ian Tyrrell @IanTyrrell5
@physiotalk I’ll go back to when I qualified, I was just happy to get a job, took me 18 months and around 100 applications (no lie). But these days choose a job that suits you and your commitments. Permanent is never permanent, you can still move but security is key. #physiotalk
Jo Lockyear @JolockyearPT
@physiotalk Permanent, I hope to upgrade my band 3 post to 5 🤞🏼 #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
@mariand84 And if there are no permanent posts available? #physiotalk
Emma Garratt @Em_Garratt
@physiotalk I wouldn’t start as a locum as a new grad - you need the structure and stability of a system which can support and develop you. Temporary contracts can work but have their limitations - depends on the role. I would look for permanent if possible #Physiotalk
David Williams 🌈 @beardedPT
@physiotalk Now that's a question? 🤔 #physiotalk
ema swingwood @emaroids1
@IanTyrrell5 @physiotalk Wording question is so important- need to ensure you are ascertaining that clinical knowledge can be implemented effectively, and adapted etc #physiotalk
Alex Winch @AWinch_Physio
@Alliedhealthwfs @physiotalk Yes, there was a small sentence at the bottom of the email, although would have been easy to miss in the excitement of being offered an interview!! #physiotalk
Emma Garratt @Em_Garratt
@cathedwards_1 @physiotalk That’s the one! #physiotalk 👍
Chris Smith @Alliedhealthwfs
@hannahmbarbour @physiotalk We, as an agency, have been working with several NHS trusts in offering a new graduate scheme. Admittedly, not every trust have the resources to cater, but it gives new grads a good idea on what speciality to go for after they graduate #physiotalk
ema swingwood @emaroids1
@physiotalk Look carefully at JD and PS- it is these docs that we short list against. Don’t just repeat PS but provide examples. Tell us what you’ve done, sell yourself!! #physiotalk
ema swingwood @emaroids1
@Em_Garratt @physiotalk If you are given info it’s there for a reason so comment on it- this will help to illustrate your clinical reasoning. THen answer the specific question #physiotalk
ataullah hussaini @ataullahhussai1
@physiotalk I think temporary is good. Because everyone can come to conclusion depending on his work. #physiotalk
Ian Tyrrell @IanTyrrell5
@Alliedhealthwfs @physiotalk Sorry for the confusion I sat on the interviewing side of the table and was asked to score someone 1-5 but tickboxes can lead to higher scores than wouldn’t necessarily be replicated in practice. #physiotalk
ema swingwood @emaroids1
@Alliedhealthwfs @JanetThomas47 @hannahmbarbour @physiotalk You need to be able to communicate and put people at ease, if you can’t do that with fellow Physios then will you be able to do that with a pt? #physiotalk
Emma Garratt @Em_Garratt
@CarylAPhysio @physiotalk @OBUPhysio Yes - it’s not always knowing the info but knowing where you could find it. And don’t forget you will not be working alone - it’s ok to say you would seek senior support!! (May well get marked down if this isn’t mentioned in certain questions) #Physiotalk
Mari @mariand84
@physiotalk Temporary #physiotalk
Alex Winch @AWinch_Physio
@physiotalk For me definitely a broad rotation with opportunities ranging from acute inpatients to community rehab. I don't know where I want to end up so I would like to see as much as I can while I have the chance #physiotalk
Chris Smith @Alliedhealthwfs
@meeshr93 @physiotalk Most trusts that have locums tend to offer them permanent opportunity especially too. Being a member of the team that knows all of the systems has the advantage #physiotalk
ema swingwood @emaroids1
@physiotalk All! It’s competitive so sometimes some temp experience helps #physiotalk
Janet Thomas @JanetThomas47

Onto our next linked question... #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
Q: What else to consider with my first job? Specialities, rotational – where is the demand? #physiotalk
ema swingwood @emaroids1
@hannahmbarbour @physiotalk Support is so important, and ongoing learning opportunities ie IST, peer review sessions etc. I agree as a locum@you wont have access to these #physiotalk
Chris Smith @Alliedhealthwfs
@Esined1234 @physiotalk Yes, sadly. We look at the NHS jobs website constantly and they are very few and far between! #physiotalk

ema swingwood @emaroids1
@physiotalk For newly qualified staff rotational experience is so very important. Even when you specialise you use knowledge and skills from other areas ie on ITU need rehab, neuro knowledge etc. Core skills such as comms, ward mx also differ between areas #physiotalk

Ian Tyrrell @IanTyrrell5
@physiotalk I personally don’t agree with speciality rotations as a band 5. You need miles on the clock and experience in a number of areas to be well rounded. That’s my personal opinion though #physiotalk
ema swingwood @emaroids1
@physiotalk I think it helps increase awareness but need to tag in relevant groups I.e @thecspstudents etc #physiotalk no remember not all trusts advertise on nhs jobs, if you want to work somewhere specifically sign up to trust specific alerts

@Esined1234 @physiotalk There aren’t many Paeds jobs at band 5 they often start at band 6. V competitive so would benefit of learning general skills b4 specialising. I used adult knowledge in words everyday #physiotalk
Ian Tyrrell @IanTyrrell5
@meeshr93 @physiotalk Sport is ok, but I wouldn’t mention you want to be a professional sports physio (did this once didn’t go down well) but if you’ve learned from your sports experience in terms of patient outcomes,reflective practice, professional development that’s different #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
@Esined1234 Anyone have thoughts on this? How many changed their minds about area of speciality once they had experienced somewhere different? #physiotalk
Emma Garratt @Em_Garratt
Definitely! Huge value in community based rotations @OxfordHealthNHS has a great rotation for Band 5 PTs (community, paeds, stroke rehab, respiratory) #Physiotalk https://t.co/o4EgnOK5bT

Caryl Hunter @CarylAPhysio
@Em_Garratt @physiotalk Plus even those areas that you don't like as much, you know you are only there for a limited time. Although I have a feeling it will probably end up being predominantly neuro or resp based for me. #physiotalk
Ian Tyrrell @IanTyrrell5
@physiotalk In my job in emergency medicine I need Msk, neuro, respiratory, mental health, frailty, orthopaedic and just about whatever else they can throw at you! #specialistgenralist so I’d argue a wide variety #physiotalk
Chris Smith @Alliedhealthwfs
@emaroids1 @Esined1234 @physiotalk Yes, something like pulmonary rehab, Paeds and some types of Neuro do tend to require a lot of miles within the sector. #physiotalk
Emma Garratt @Em_Garratt
@IanTyrrell5 @physiotalk Not sure I agree - with the right supportive team and structure speciality roles can be great for new grads and inspire them into those areas in the future! #Physiotalk
Caroline Slater @CarolinePhysio1
@physiotalk I’m interested in a permanent B5 rotation in my local trust. Many Physios I speak to say they learnt the most from their rotations and would highly recommend doing rotations #Physiotalk

@emaroids1 @physiotalk @thecspstudents Yes. We are actually seeing a few more NHS trusts going down the twitter and LinkedIn routes. Some managers even use their personal Facebook accounts as a sounding board, which is I think is great #physiotalk
Caryl Hunter @CarylAPhysio
@CarolinePhysio1 @physiotalk So true! Would agree with this - would say it is probably the most consistent piece of advice I have heard across physio. #physiotalk
Janet Thomas @JanetThomas47
@CarylAPhysio @Em_Garratt @physiotalk @emaroids1 Ahem - both wrong! Working with older people the best! #physiotalk

Emma Garratt @Em_Garratt
@meeshr93 @physiotalk @Alliedhealthwfs @Esined1234 Not necessarily - it’s your personal choice to relocate so won’t add anything to the decision making by the panel. You could clarify that you are happy to relocate but I think they would assume that on the basis you have come for interview! #Physiotalk

@Em_Garratt @CarylAPhysio @physiotalk Did you realise you had 2 resp components in your ‘neuro’ tweet?!?! 😂🤣 #physiotalk #everyonelovesphlegm
Chris Smith @Alliedhealthwfs
@emaroids1 @physiotalk @Esined1234 We have heard that OTs and Physios work pretty much in unison in certain areas #physiotalk
Ian Tyrrell @IanTyrrell5
@Em_Garratt @physiotalk For some it would be, but I think you just limit someone’s ability to cope with the complex of one condition alongside another, I.e respiratory and neuro, msk and frailty. Developing skills across many areas not just one makes a better clinician imo #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
Time for our final question #physiotalk
David Williams 🌈 @beardedPT
On the other hand, I have had discussions with several students about going into B5 static MSK roles and even some in the private sector? - To balance out the discussions on rotations #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
Q: What about locum or bank posts – are they an option for me? What do I need to have ready for that type of post? #physiotalk
Lara | physio in UK @Larita_gc
@IanTyrrell5 @physiotalk #physiotalk
ema swingwood @emaroids1
@Alliedhealthwfs @physiotalk @Esined1234 MDT working so important, roles complement each other for sure #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
@beardedPT Any one have comments on this? (Thank you for the balance!) #physiotalk
Ian Tyrrell @IanTyrrell5
@Larita_gc @physiotalk No I don’t mean you shouldn’t work in specialities, you shouldn’t just work in one. You should work in lots of different specialities to enhance development. #physiotalk
Dee @DeeThePhysio
@Alliedhealthwfs @emaroids1 @physiotalk Agreed, rotations are important to get wider experience, but if they are there for the taking (for newly qualified physios) then there must be some benefit in it? Has anyone gone straight into a 'specialist' post that could comment on benefits of doing so? #physiotalk
Mari @mariand84
@emaroids1 @physiotalk @Esined1234 Agree with this one #physiotalk One of my first jobs was at a hospital where I got to work in different wards, very good. I learned which area was for me and which was not

Emma Garratt @Em_Garratt
@IanTyrrell5 @physiotalk But people don’t have conditions in isolation - many have multiple co-morbidities or multifactorial presentations which interplay and learning how to apply skills from different areas is such a useful opportunity? #Physiotalk
ema swingwood @emaroids1
@physiotalk @beardedPT We just need to ensure there is an appropriate teaching and support system in place, and that the lack of rotational experience into different clinical areas does not impact effectiveness in chosen clinics area #physiotalk
Nick Flanagan @PuppyFlanagan
@physiotalk As a locum/bank worker, do you miss out on the CPD/education normally seen within a newly qualified role like rotational band 5 etc? Or are there other opportunities? #physiotalk
Lara | physio in UK @Larita_gc
@IanTyrrell5 @physiotalk Oh I see! Misunderstood! Then completely agree, that variety makes you better physio later on, regardless of what you specialise on. Sorry for the confusion. #physiotalk
Chris Smith @Alliedhealthwfs
@Em_Garratt @Esined1234 @physiotalk We tend to see the main cities have the most vacancies for both locum and permanent posts. It’s all dependant on the therapists personal circumstances. Plus some hospitals do not offer accommodation, which is another factor to think about #Physiotalk
Janet Thomas @JanetThomas47
@Alliedhealthwfs @Em_Garratt @Esined1234 @physiotalk Think a lots of hospitals don't have much accommodation nowadays? #physiotalk
Caroline Slater @CarolinePhysio1
@physiotalk @beardedPT I really like MSK and static B5 roles are coming up more in my local trust. I would most likely apply but I wouldn’t be disappointed if I didn’t get it and went on to rotations instead. It’s all learning! #Physiotalk

ema swingwood @emaroids1
@Esined1234 @Alliedhealthwfs @physiotalk Unfortunately some roles may be static at band 5 due to cost! Luckily I’ve never worked anywhere that this has been the case. #physiotalk
David Williams 🌈 @beardedPT
@physiotalk If my career goes a certain way I may consider these options. However, I feel I will miss out on the "rotations" support/learning #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
That's the hour up! Thanks to @alliedhealthwfs for guest hosting tonights chat! #physiotalk
Chris Smith @Alliedhealthwfs
@physiotalk Hi Nick, all good agencies (if you go locum) offer CPD courses, or offer financial assistance in doing it. #Physiotalk
Ian Tyrrell @IanTyrrell5
@Em_Garratt @physiotalk Again sorry my point may have been misunderstood or I may have misunderstood the question. I don’t think people should have speciality rotations I.e msk, neuro, resp. They should have to have rotations in all areas. #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
@Alliedhealthwfs Feel free to keep on chatting - and we will collate transcript in a while! #physiotalk
Caryl Hunter @CarylAPhysio
@Em_Garratt @IanTyrrell5 @physiotalk Agree with Emma here. Only halfway through my 1st ward based placement on AGM - co-morbidities & their presentations are so key to all physio, no matter which skills you are using. #physiotalk
ema swingwood @emaroids1
@puppyflanagan @physiotalk If we have locum in #NHS they are there to see pts and do not access IST’s etc. Lots of other opportunities but funding may be difficult. #physiotalk
Chris Smith @Alliedhealthwfs
@physiotalk Thank you all so so much. I will carry on replying to all the messages that I missed! #Physiotalk
Nick Flanagan @PuppyFlanagan
@beardedPT @physiotalk Yeah that’s my concern too @beardedPT It’s good to know agency’s support CPD, what are the well known physio agencies? #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
Our next chat - something totally different - sleep! (Isn't that the beauty of #physiotalk)
Ben Ellis @bendotellis
@physiotalk I would strongly advise against going straight out of uni into a locum post. Bank can work if it gets a foothold into a specific trust #physiotalk
Lara | physio in UK @Larita_gc
@puppyflanagan @physiotalk When I started in a bank post I talked with my lead about CPD (ie: in service training) and he was keen to let me attend and participate on other things in the trust to show they promoted development regardless and of course for staff retention. #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
We are looking for some suggestions for our next few chats - so tweet us some ideas! #physiotalk
Chris Smith @Alliedhealthwfs
@JanetThomas47 @Em_Garratt @Esined1234 @physiotalk Not many sadly, some NHS trusts have outsourced their accommodation to agencies that manage it for them. #physiotalk But if working as a locum, we can offer some support with costs on that.
Chris Smith @Alliedhealthwfs

@Alliedhealthwfs @physiotalk Thoughts about going through an agency to find rotational posts? I spoke to a number of agencies at the csp physio conference... #physiotalk

@hipsterlife85 @physiotalk Great! Will be here to answer anything you might need to know #Physiotalk
Ben Ellis @bendotellis
@emaroids1 @Esined1234 @physiotalk Back in the day maybe, increasingly trusts struggling to recruit B6s in paeds and dropping to static B5s to plug gaps #physiotalk
Natalie Patterson @PhysioNatalie
@physiotalk Little late to the party but I swatted up on the trust and they asked me nothing on it. I had 5 scenario based qs including one on data protection. I knew the names of 2 of them so googled them to find their specialities #Physiotalk
Emma Garratt @Em_Garratt
@puppyflanagan @physiotalk As a locum you would be unlikely to access in-house training and development opportunities - you are there to see patients and don’t tend to get the perks. Would approach with caution as a new grad personally #Physiotalk
Chris Smith @Alliedhealthwfs
@RoyalFreeMSK @physiotalk Thank you so much! It’s been a pleasure. #physiotalk Really grateful for all the work you guys do.
Lara | physio in UK @Larita_gc
@physiotalk If interested on a specific Trust, working as bank might not be such a bad idea. Gives you the opportunity to know the team as well as showing your skills and attitude for potential permanent jobs. #physiotalk

Chris Smith @Alliedhealthwfs
@Esined1234 @physiotalk I would recommend working as a locum in anything you took an interest in any of your placements. The only reason I say this is that you are not committed to giving 1 months notice to something you may not like #physiotalk

Emma Garratt @Em_Garratt
@puppyflanagan @beardedPT @physiotalk I agree with @bendotellis and would advise against agencies as a new grad. I would suggest seeking a permanent or temporary role within a trust to acces the support and development you need as a newly qualified #physiotalk

Dee @DeeThePhysio
@physiotalk I don't feel I would be ready to take on locum/bank work as a newly qualified. There's so much to learn that working ad-hoc and in various places without a regular team and training wouldn't be the way for me, maybe if you have bags of confidence it's another way in? #physiotalk
Chris Smith @Alliedhealthwfs
@Em_Garratt @meeshr93 @physiotalk @Esined1234 Exactly, if the location was the only hurdle and you are flexible regarding the location, then you are as good as placed! #physiotalk
Emma Garratt @Em_Garratt
@IanTyrrell5 @physiotalk Haha sorry @IanTyrrell5 - totally misunderstood. I thought you meant specialist areas within rotations. Yes agree with you a broad range of experience is beneficial! 😂😂 #physiotalk
Ian Tyrrell @IanTyrrell5
@beardedPT Honestly, if you havd or offered me that 11 years ago would have bitten your hand off. However I found after doing a respiratory rotation(that I was dreading) and then doing an 8 month stint on msk that there was only one winner. And it wasn’t msk! Choose carefully #physiotalk
Emma Garratt @Em_Garratt
@JanetThomas47 @physiotalk @PhysioNatalie Worried what they might find... 😳😂 #physiotalk
Ben Ellis @bendotellis
@Alliedhealthwfs @Esined1234 @physiotalk With respect, I think that’s dubious advice at best As a locum you’re there to pick up and run with a caseload from day 1 generally to plug a gap due to absence/vacancy. thats a very different scenario to rotating into an area or starting a static role as an employee #physiotalk
Chris Smith @Alliedhealthwfs
@JanetThomas47 @hannahmbarbour @physiotalk Hi Janet, not that I am aware of. We have developed the new graduate scheme with some NHS trusts that have the resources to offer a similar system to Flying Start. #physiotalk
