Physiotherapy Technician - Band 4 BMT & Haem
Are you interested in a new and exciting role working with teenagers, young adults and adults with haematological malignancies and conditions? The Blood and Marrow Transplant (BMT) physiotherapy service at the University Hospital of Wales are seeking a motivated Band 4 Physiotherapy Technician to join the team.
The BMT service at the University Hospital of Wales is a regional centre offering transplants for many patients with haematological conditions and malignancies. The physiotherapy team are involved in the care of any patients under this service throughout their journey; from prior to their transplant, during their admission for transplant and any subsequent admissions with complications, to survivorship following transplant. Physiotherapy input aims to minimise the impact and complications of treatment to enhance patients’ health, wellbeing and quality of life and ultimately enable patients to return to their full independence where possible.
The post holder will work closely with the Specialist Physiotherapist to provide highly specialised care. This will involve working with inpatients on the haematology ward, blood and marrow transplant unit and the teenage cancer unit and will also have an outpatient component. The postholder, in conjunction with the physiotherapist, will be responsible for the running of group sessions for patients, with the emphasis on increasing physical activity and fitness levels as well as one-to-one input, either face-to-face or virtually, as appropriate.
The successful applicant will have good communication skills and be able to motivate and encourage a wide range of patients to engage in physical activity/exercise. As the role will cover both inpatient and outpatient care, having a good understanding and/or previous experience of ward working and the role of physiotherapy is required. Previous experience of working with cancer patients and understanding the impact of cancer and its treatment, as well as experience of running exercise classes are desirable qualities for this post.
The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; Welsh and/or English speakers are equally welcome to apply.
