We currently have an opportunity for you to join the Occupational Therapy Junior rotation across Acute Medicine (Respiratory and Rehabilitation), Orthopaedics, Neurology Team (Acute, Rehabilitation and Early Supported Discharge) and the Community Health and Social Care Teams. All these teams link into other specialist services including outpatient Occupational Therapy (Rheumatology and Hand Therapy), Hospice and the Supported Discharge services.

Each rotation is for six months.

You will be working with an integrated team of therapists across the Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy profession. The recent developments to the rotations that have taken place are the introduction to rotational posts across Health and Social Care in the Community and the opportunity to work on the new refurbished Stroke Ward providing experience across Acute and Rehabilitation.

This also includes the opportunity to attend the Trust’s biannual OT Professional Forum which involves Occupational Therapists from across acute, community, social care, mental health, learning disability, outpatient and paediatric services, coming together to network, learn and share best practise

The post holder will be expected to work occasionally at the weekends.
