We're looking for Band 5 Occupational Therapists to join our exciting rapid response services in Swale. This is a great opportunity to put your BSC degree in Physiotherapy to good use, as well as having your HCPC registration!
As a band 5 Occupational Therapist within our rapid response team we are offering the chance to rotate within our therapy services in the Swale locality. We currently provide therapy in the following areas:
Rapid Response: 2-hour response visits to support hospital discharges and prevent hospital admissions via CRISIS management with an MDT approach across 7 days.

Community Hospital Ward: Providing rehab and discharge planning for patients at a community hospital with an 18 day EDD and providing follow up rehab to those whom require reintegrating at home.
You will also be required to work closely with our multidisciplinary teams across all the settings, where you will be delivering high quality, individualised, evidenced based care to all patients. You'll care for patients and their families in the way that you believe is best, delivering our high service standards, sharing best practice, and actively improving the way we work to help us change things for the better.
