Frimley Health is a Trust where great care and great careers go hand in hand. We’re three hospitals working closely with each other and with the communities we serve in Surrey, Berkshire, Hampshire and Buckinghamshire  - our organisation has brought Heatherwood and Wexham hospitals into the fold of Frimley Park Hospital and its wider community services.

You’ll find the highest standards of clinical excellence across our locations and a friendly, supportive, open culture that brings everyone together. For our team it means a great day-to-day working experience – in a Trust with strong leadership, a clear sense of direction and an exciting vision for the future. The investment and changes ahead make this an exciting place to be. You can play your part in delivering exceptional patient care, while continuing to grow, develop and progress through first class learning and training.

This is an exciting opportunity to join an innovative and expanding team that has a focus on improving patient outcomes and joins up acute and community care. As part of the PACS Vanguard there has been significant commitment in the development of this service.

We are now recruiting an Occupational Therapy Team Lead within Enhanced Recovery & Support at Home. Working as part of the multi-disciplinary team you will undertake management of the service with a roughly 60% focus of your time on your own clinical caseload. The team supports patients in need of both admission avoidance and timely discharge from hospital with the priority being to keep people happy and healthy at home.

It is a varied and exciting role with ongoing development and closer professional links with the wider Occupational Therapy Teams within the Trust. You will draw on your clinical rehab skills and experience to develop patient-centred rehab goals, using professional assessment frameworks, key working and reviewing patients.

The teams consist of Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Nurses and Rehab Support Workers supported by Administrators.

This is a full time position and you must be able to independently travel to and from patient’s homes and the workplace.
