Physiotherapy career progressionWatch
How long does it take to go from band 5 to band 6 as a physiotherapist?
As an average about 2 - 3 years. Best case I have known people who have done it in 8 - 12 months, and worst case, people who have taken years due to maternity leave, going travelling etc. Depends what area, how hard you work, whether you happen to be in the right place at the right time etc etc.
Do you know if the bands work in one area? For example if you moved to band 6 at one hospital, can you then apply for band 6 at another hospital?
