Occupational Therapist

Posted 18 September by NHS Business Services Authority

We have an exciting opening for an enthusiastic and motivated Band 5 Occupational Therapists to join an integrated rehabilitation pathway across community services. This is a fantastic opportunity to join a dynamic and forward thinking service with high morale and a commitment to supporting people at home. You will be well supported and encouraged to continuously develop to meet the needs of yourself and the service. We offer flexibility in working patterns, term time or seasonal contracts, free parking and the chance to practice with true autonomy.

The Seaton, Axminster and Sidmouth Cluster has an attractive mix of rural villages and coastal towns whilst being only 30mins drive from Exeter. The Cluster is set in a landscape of outstanding natural beauty, and part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. The largest landslip in the UK provides the landscape for coastal walks, fishing harbours and beautiful beaches. Inland, the market town of Axminster provides excellent rail links to London and Exeter.

You will be part of a multi-disciplinary, integrated team and will have the chance of working with patients in the community hospital or their own homes who present with a wide variety of long term conditions including complex neurological and falls. The emphasis is maximising their independence and quality of life through assessment, rehabilitation, preventing hospital admissions and supporting the discharge process from hospital.
