Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust prides itself in striving to be an employer of choice.


All external appointments to the Trust will be required to attend a full Trust Corporate Induction which will be held at Carew House, Beacon Technology Park, Dunmere Road, Bodmin, PL31 2QN.

The induction programme is for all new staff and the length is dependent on the role you will be undertaking. It is an essential part of new staff training requirements and therefore attendance is mandatory.


Our Trust objectives are:

  • To deliver high quality care, safe and accessible services.
  • To maximise the potential of our workforce to deliver high quality care to patients
  • To achieve best value and ensure the Trust is sustainable and financially sound into the future
  • To diversify and develop services that meet commissioner and service user needs and expectations
  • To improve health and wellbeing by working in partnership to create life opportunities for our clients



An opportunity has arisen to provide maternity cover within a well-respected outpatient physiotherapy team based in Bodmin Community Hospital. We have a mix of staff both administrative and clinical ranging from Band 2 to 7, including Clinical Specialists and Extended Scope Practitioners and GPs with Special Interest.

Our service provides out-patient physiotherapy to the local community accepting referrals from GPs, Consultants and Allied Health Professionals, as well as Patient Self-referrals. We have a strong commitment to professional development, regular supervision and in-service training at a local and countywide level.

We are looking for a capable, motivated colleague to join our team on a full time basis on a 12 month fixed term contract.

Either one full time or two part time posts may be available, depending on applications. If full time there is an expectation to provide part time cover to the MSK Physiotherapy team at Launceston Community Hospital. If two applicants are appointed part time, one will be deployed at Bodmin Hospital the other at Launceston Hospital.
