The role:

As an occupational therapist, you'll empower people to carry out everyday tasks or occupations with more confidence and independence in order to improve their health, quality of life and wellbeing. You'll create individual treatment programmes and suggest changes to the person's environment, whether that be at home, work or school, and may introduce the use of equipment which will help with some activities. You'll review the treatments periodically, evaluate progress and make changes as needed.

  • Assess, plan, implement and evaluate treatment plans in hospital and community settings.
  • Establish realistic goals with the patient with meaningful outcomes.
  • Liaise with other professionals, such as doctors, physiotherapists, social workers, equipment suppliers and architects, as well as patients' families, teachers, carers and employers.
  • Keep up-to-date written and electronic records.
  • Write reports and care plans and attend multidisciplinary case meetings to plan and review ongoing treatment.
  • Manage a caseload, prioritising patient needs and completing administrative tasks such as patient and budgetary records.

Applicant Requirements:
  • Qualifications: Degree approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
  • Experience: 2+ years working as an occupational therapist.
  • Compliance: Up to date HCPC registration and DBS.
