Physiotherapy is a rewarding and flexible career where you will work with adults and children, their families and carers in varied settings, from intensive care to community care. Physiotherapists will play an essential role in meeting the vision of the future health and social care workforce, where they will help to restore movement and function in those affected by injury, illness or disability. Physiotherapy also plays an important role in injury prevention and uses a “whole person” approach to health and wellbeing, which includes advising patients about their lifestyle.
