North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (formerly known as 5 Boroughs Partnership NHS Foundation Trust until 1st April 2017), provides physical health, mental health and learning disability services across the North West region. The Trust employs around 4000 staff across our sites and also has a Temporary Bank which offers the flexibility of working shifts around other commitments.

We are committed to providing safe, compassionate care and look to appoint people who are as passionate about patient care as we are.


Are you a Physiotherapist with a passion for delivering outstanding care that brings the 6 Cs (care, compassion, commitment, courage, communication and competence) to life? If so, we want to hear from you.

St Helens & Knowsley Community Learning Disability Team is currently looking to recruit a caring and committed Band 5 Physiotherapist, based at Willis House in Whiston. This post requires a skilled clinician to work in a well-established multi-disciplinary team. The team works collaboratively with a number of agencies and providers working with adults with learning disabilities in their own homes and/or a variety of community based settings.

We require a skilled clinician who ideally has relevant experience in working with adults with learning disabilities. The role may include working with adults with complex physical health needs, complex behaviours and/or mental health needs alongside their learning disability.  Our aim is to reduce the risk of hospital admission, reducing health inequalities and improving health outcomes.

As an employee of North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Trust, you will receive the following benefits:

  • Free 24 hour access to our Health and Well-being Centre and Gym at the Hollins Park site, including tai chi and pilates classes
  • 27 days annual leave plus bank holidays (29 days after 5 years’ and 33 days after 10 years’ service)
  • Access to the NHS pension scheme
  • The opportunity to access a range of NHS discounts such as the Salary Sacrifice Car and Bikes for Staff Schemes
  • Regular supervision and access to a range of training courses at our Education Centre
  • Access to our Library at Hollins Park House, providing resources to support you in your development and/or research
