The West Coast DHB is launching a dedicated Community Rehabilitation Service.  Want to be part of this great initiative?

There really is nothing like the wild beauty of the South Island's West Coast. From the glaciers in the south to Punakaiki and the Heaphy Track in the north. Greymouth has easy access to them all, with its shop lined streets, the Grey River, historic architecture, cosy cafes and soon to be, the site of a brand new hospital. 

We’re looking for an experienced Physiotherapist to join us in our mission of providing excellent client t care. You’ll be a key member of the team responsible for assessment, treatment, rehabilitation and education to patients across the West Coast, based in our Complex Clinical Care Network in Greymouth. You will be involved in the ongoing development of service delivery to those who would benefit from community based therapy including early supported discharge, contributing to the fracture liaison service and prevention of unnecessary hospital admissions.

You will enjoy working in the community with a diverse adult caseload that will include orthopaedics, neurology, older person’s health and more. You will work with a high level of autonomy whilst being an integral part of a supportive Physiotherapy team, Complex Clinical Care Network Team and a key participant in community inter-disciplinary teams. 

Ideally you will have experience working as a community physio and have equipment assessment accreditation. You will be well organised, with excellent caseload management skills. 

You will be a team player and keen to contribute to service development and community health initiatives. Your strong communication skills and client focused approach will see you build positive relationships with clients/family/whanau and a variety of agencies while supporting client’s independence and safety.
