Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals Trust are actively recruiting for a Band 6 Occupational Therapist to join our Integrated Therapies Team for the Medical Specialties and Oncology wards working cross site between Queen’s Hospital and King George Hospital.
As a Band 6 Occupational Therapist in a large and busy team you will be required to demonstrate strong leadership skills and be confident to work as an autonomous practitioner with a focus on early assessment and discharge planning with rapid and robust decision-making essential for efficient patient flow. You will be familiar with the assessment of patients with diverse presentations and complex physical, cognitive and psychological health conditions within medical specialties in order to develop and deliver treatment and discharge plans.
Working in a fast paced environment, you will have the opportunity to expand your clinical skills and knowledge across the Medical Speciality wards including Renal, Endocrine, Gastroenterology and Oncology. A flexible approach is essential as you will also support other areas when required within the wider Medical Team to meet service demands. You will be supported by a Band 7 Occupational Therapist and a Band 8a Clinical Lead.
Essential criteria:
    • Degree or Diploma in Occupational Therapy with valid HCPC registration
    • Recent and comprehensive clinical experience of working within an acute hospital in medicine and elderly
    • Broad range of Band 5 rotations completed
    • The ability to demonstrate skills in assessment and treatment of patients in line with current practise and research
    • The ability to work both independently and collaboratively.
In line with the Government agenda for the NHS and in order to achieve the highest quality of care for our patients we have moved to a seven day service with varying shift patterns for the Medical and Elderly Receiving Units and Elderly Short Stay Unit. We are looking for a person who will enjoy the benefits of this working pattern.
If you have the skills outlined above and want a rewarding opportunity where you will be encouraged to influence and develop services whilst being valued and supported then apply today.
Enquiries to discuss the position are welcomed. Please contact Suzette Ferreira, Clinical Lead Therapist, via email: suzette.ferreira@bhrhospitals.nhs.uk or on 01708 435000 ext. 6379
