We are looking for experienced, highly motivated, innovative and friendly Band 6 Occupational Therapists to join our Stroke, Rehabilitation and Early Supported Discharge Team at The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospitals NHS Trust.
We have several posts available so full time and part time applications are welcomed.
Our acute stroke service is based at The Princess Royal Hospital, Telford. Services include hyper acute and acute stroke care wards and Stroke Early Supported Discharge. The post holder would rotate between the inpatient and ESD setting. Occasionally the post holder will be required to support their medical therapy colleagues with the care of patients with stroke or other neurological conditions on the acute wards.
We are looking for someone who has Stroke/ Neurology experience, is flexible, has good time management skills, works well in a team as well as independently and is able to support and appraise Band 5's and Therapy Support Worker staff. This post holder would be expected to mentor students by being a practice educator linked with the Universities.
We are a friendly, forward thinking team working in a fast paced rewarding environment. High quality patient care is at the core of our decision making and we are enthusiastic about welcoming new ideas and staff development.
We are delighted to be able to offer patients who have had a stroke the opportunity of assessment and treatment over the weekend and Bank Holidays and this post holder would be expected to participate in the 7-day working rota for this.
The team have a robust supervision structure and a strong drive for personal and professional development across all bands and roles facilitating events within the team, department, Trust and externally to enable the best possible care is delivered to patients.
Within Therapies we have a strong culture of professional leadership and support. Each profession has a head of profession leading on delivering local, regional and national professional strategy. This includes AHP’s into action, job planning, electronic rostering, electronic data capture, quality improvement strategy, and representation at internal and external meetings raising the profile of Therapies at all times.
For the last 5 years Shrewsbury and Telford Hospitals have been advantaged by being linked with the Virginia Mason Institute in Seattle, USA. This affiliation has seen the implementation of improvement tools focusing on the patient at the centre of the organisation. We are proud to have a culture of patient focused care utilising our resources to the best of our abilities.
We look forward to meeting you at interview and exploring all the opportunities you will gain by joining us in this exciting and essential role.
