Are you an experienced Trauma and Orthopaedic ward Occupational Therapist?
We would love you to work with us in the Therapy department at Stoke Mandeville Hospital for 30 hours a week.
There are wards specialising in Acute Trauma and Acute Trauma rehabilitation and Surgical wards and we have an Early Supported Orthopaedic team too!
You will work alongside the Band 7 OT Team lead, Band 6, Band 5 and IntegratedTherapy Band 3s with the Physiotherapists to provide dynamic and timely Occupational Therapy intervention to these wards, liaising with our integrated community services. You may also be responsible for supervising junior staff and students on placement.
Experience in orthopaedics, trauma, surgery and dynamic discharge planning is required and neurology experience is useful. Excellent communication skills, clear clinical decision making skills and an ability to demonstrate you are a team player is essential.
You will assist the Band 7 & Head Occupational Therapist to develop the service with a multi-disciplinary focus and links with community services.
Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust offers excellent leadership support and clinical supervision and is committed to continuing professional development.
For further information please contact Yvonne Short – Band 7 Advanced Occupational Therapist on bleep 795 or or Charlotte Slinger - Head Occupational Therapist who will be pleased to advise you and arrange an informal visit.
