How come that site doesnt cover all counties

Does you know of any other sites which advertise NHS jobs (i.e physio assistants) ??
what counties are missing? Sometimes they get bunged together

I cant think of any others

what you could do is type

"Physiotherapy assistant job vacancies 2006" into google and you'll get stuff up like that as some trusts don't use tht website and instead use their own

Right all you physio students - heres a neuro question for ya! Our lecturer gave us a little quiz to do and on the questions is
1. Where is the motor strip?

Am I right in thinking that this is the same as the pre-central gyrus as this is the motor cortex........?

Hope you get the job you're after, I'm sure you will and yeah JackieS defo gave you some good advice there about not saying you'll be leaving so soon

I would recommend hinting to any organisation in health care you could be working for, that you INTEND to be loyal and work there for a long time :cool:

Hey guys

In abid to avoid revision I have spent part of the day updating the course requirements section of this list for 2007 entry. No major chances except that Cardiff have upped their course requirements from ABB to AAB - and some uni's now have GCSE requirements.

Hopefully this will help those applying in 2007

POst any questions here

thanks 4 updating the thread Jackie

woah...the requirements for Cardiff is certainly going to separate out the best from the good in terms of academics. and you get some people doing medicine or other courses saying how less competitive it is compared to their courses...what a joke!!

its a shame the uni's operating the 'lottery' style selection procedures are not going to change any time soon. lol

And intake at Ulster for the pre-reg 2 year is still suspended according to the webste. So make sure you contact the uni before applying if you're interested

there are a couple that post on here but the nature of the course means they don't have much spare time and thus post very irregularly. I applied for MSc entry so might be able to answer any questions you have

Isn't it also worth pointing out that there's a MASSIVE job crisis regarding Physiotherapy within the NHS? I've spoken to so many graduates that have taken employment at Tesco after finding themselves facing interviews, where there has been around 500 applicants for a single post. People should be wary about committing themselves to a three year course and potentially facing debt, as there's not the same 'guarantee of employment' there used to be.
...anyway, just a thought.

Surely one benefit of doing a course like physiotherapy is the potential to work in the private sector as well as the nhs? There is also the potential to work overseas even straight after graduation. It is unreasonable , in the current nhs climate, to expect to walk into an nhs job straight after training.

Having said that I do believe that all physio graduates should automatically progress onto a two-year nhs contract where they would have rotations in the specialities and gain experience for more senior jobs. It is a complete waste of nhs money to train people whether for physio or any other nhs role and then dump them when they qualify.

...Oh right, I was actually told that graduates require experience within the NHS before being elligible to work abroad or privately.
...I really should learn to be quiet and get my facts straight.

It would depend on the job being advertised and the country in question. Some areas of foreign countries have a shortage of applicants and in that case even a newly qualified physio would be accepted if it was for an entry level post. Obviously if the native population don't want to work in that area there may be reasons why a UK graduate might be reluctant to work there as well!

I know that New Zealand may take a newly qualified graduate but it won't be in the main centres of population and there would have to be a shortage of home grown applicants before you would be considered. But it would be a possibility.

I have checked the CSP website and can see nothing that says you are not allowed to practice privately straight after graduation and so far as working abroad is concerned it only 'advises' that you should do two years rotations in the nhs before going abroad. My own view is that if there are no places in this country to do rotations and another country has vacancies to do them, it would be stupid to sit on your thumb just dreaming and waiting for a suitable vacancy to turn up.

I know that if I can't get a job in this country following graduation, I will just go to wherever will have me regardless of where in the world it is. The alternative of working full time in a shop or office isn't going to happen. If the nhs is daft enough to pay a fortune to train me and then not give me a job then the only option left is to say, well thanks for the training, I'm off!

you're right, there is a jobs crisis. But the skills you will learn as a physio can still be put into place a few years after your degree.........................w hat about those doctors that are struggling for posts? Thats a 5 year commitment. At the end of the day if physio is what you really want to doI think its totally worth it/. If you can't get a job when you graduate then you can still do courses and voluntary work which will help you keep your skills up and therefore will still keep you competent for jobs as and when they arise

As Jingle[pupskye says you don't have to work in the NHS after you qualify. There is absolutely nothing stopping you nfrom going and woring in the pricate sector the minute you graduate. I know someone who graudated and automatically starting work a championshipfootball club - shehadn't done a sigle NHS rotation. Wether it is such a wise idea to go straight into the private sector is another question altogether but if its all you can get and the NHS don't have anything then people would be stupid not to.

Also as Jinglepupskye says it dpeneds totallyt on the job. Some places will accept graudates generally because they're cheaper than a physio with lots of experience but it totally varies from post to psot.
