    Red face What is a band 5 physio?

    Hi all,
    I know this question may seem ridiculous to you, but in Portugal we don´t use the same classification.
    I have been seeing some advertisments for jobs in the UK, but don´t really know what they are asking for...
    Does it have to do with the years of experience or something else?
    Thanks for your help

    Re: What is a band 5 physio?

    More often than not band 5 posts are for newly qualified professionals - its mainly an NHS term that has replaced the posts previously known as basic grade or junior. The band 5 positions can also be for anyone returning to work after a period of time out of the profession - assuming that they can demonstrate an understanding of the fundamental skills required to do the job.

    Thx for your reply wriggly_b. And the other bands (6, 7 how many are there?) are for how many years of experience?

    Re: What is a band 5 physio?

    Band 6 is for experienced physiotherapists - normally with 2+ years experience (specialist), band 7 is specialist physiotherapists/team leaders or physiotherapists with managerial responsibilities and band 8 (which is broken into 3 levels - a,b,c) tends to be department head or higher level management and often have little clinical hours, based on their management role.

    Re: What is a band 5 physio?

    Thanks Wriggly,

    We all have the same profession but the circumstances per country vary so much.
    I never knew how these bands worked either and I have been around for a while .

    Thanks for the explanation.

    Esther
