Karl - Senior Musculo-skeletal Physiotherapist, York Hospital
Karl made the move from the North East to York and now works at York Hospital.
“I studied at York St John University and managed to obtain a rotational post shortly after graduating. I found this rotational experience within the hospital valuable and this facilitated progressing onto a band 6 post.
“The support offered as a newly qualified therapist was excellent through structured in-service training programmes and peer mentorship. Since becoming a Band 6 therapist, further opportunities have been offered including regularly working alongside the Extended Scope Practitioners and the Hand Consultant. I have found the trust to be very supportive in continuous development – since joining the Trust I have received support on multiple courses including acupuncture and an upcoming injection therapy module.
“York is a great city to work and live in from a commuting, social and active perspective. I currently work across multiple different sites which take a maximum of thirty minutes to travel to. I have now lived in York for the past 8 years and haven’t regretted my decision in moving here!”
