Occupational therapist Band 6
Rehabilitation Community services, Inpatient and Community Rehabilitation Services.
Are you a dynamic, self-directed clinician who feels passionately about delivering holistic care to ensure that patients reach their full potential and the best outcomes possible?
This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a dynamic, experienced team working closely with acute and community partners to support early discharge from hospital and providing short term therapy input in our community inpatient units . You will need to be prepared to work flexibly in a truly MDT environment, with many opportunities for developing your problem solving and clinical reasoning skills.
Our motto “supporting healthy lives” is where we look to provide a holistic service addressing physical and mental health needs to promote a healthy rehabilitation. We put patients at the heart of what we do; maintaining a constant focus on what their individual goals are, helping them to achieve what matters the most.
We are looking to recruit a Band 6 Occupational therapist for our Rehabilitation Ward, Capetown. This ward has recently transferred from an Acute provider to Enfield Community Health Services. It provides the opportunity to further evolve integrated, partnership working and build on current pathways to provide a truly integrated service to the population of Enfield.
The ward currently provides general rehabilitation and stroke and neurological rehab for those recovering from acute illness. Although this will be the main base for the role there will be an opportunity to work across our rehabilitation wards/services.
You will manage a complex caseload, assessing and developing treatment programmes for patients. We work closely with our community therapy colleagues with a common focus of smoothing the transition for patients from hospital to home. You will be encouraged to forge links and participate in peer review with Band 6 therapists in the community teams with the potential to develop rotational opportunities across services for therapy staff.
In return we will invest in your career and personal development. We have a well established supervision structure and appraisal system in place.
Don’t delay, contact us today.
