Physiotherapist

2nd July 2019

To be a good physiotherapist you need to have…

  • excellent communication skills and interpersonal skills to establish a rapport with patients and their families
  • problem-solving ability
  • tolerance, patience, sensitivity and tact
  • a firm but encouraging and empathetic attitude
  • a genuine concern for the wellbeing and health of patients
  • a real interest in anatomy and physiology

If you’re thinking of a career as a physiotherapist…

You must be registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). To register with the HCPC, you first need to successfully complete an approved degree level qualification in physiotherapy.

There are also two-year accelerated MSc courses available to people who already have a BSc degree in a relevant subject.

To get onto a degree apprenticeship, you will need to apply for an apprentice position with a health care provider. You can search for vacancies on the NHS Jobs website and Find an Apprenticeship website.
