Physiotherapy Development Lead - North & Central London

Your purpose

Our Physiotherapy Development Lead will play a leading role in advancing our patient care standards and clinical excellence, taking Ascenti to the next level.

You will empower our Leadership Team to build the clinical capability of their teams, plan and manage clinical skills development and upgrading, leading specialist clinical training across your region; at the same time as being on hand to provide expert clinical advice and direction where needed.

Building strong relationships within your partner region, you will provide top quality advice about clinical standards and the optimal development of each individual clinician. You’ll ensure that we live our values from the inside out, particularly in relation to safeguarding, patient safety and clinical procedures.

How your role fits within our team

The Physiotherapy Development Lead will report to the Area Leadership Team and will have a dotted-line to our Head of Clinical Excellence. You’ll be a senior MSK physiotherapist, so you’ll know what best practice looks like and you’ll role model this in your everyday work.

You’ll be responsible for facilitating the clinical development and empowering high performance of all clinicians within your region. Clinicians will seek you out when they need advice and support in their clinical practice; particularly when a clinical mentor suggests that a more complex or serious case, needs a more experienced hand to resolve.
