We are looking for a full time neurophysiotherapist who is enthusiastic about Acquired Brain Injury. This is an opportunity for you to join our proactive and holistic client-centred interdisciplinary team in beautiful Suffolk. Your work, while exclusively with adult ABI clients, will be extremely varied and cover a wide range of complexities. You may be giving advice regarding tone and position management or ensuring a young scaffolder is physically fit and ready to return to work. The assessments, treatments and efficient discharges you will deliver will take place in our purpose-built centre located in Stowmarket, the client’s homes and in the wider community.
