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.


Are you looking for a challenging job?

Due to exciting developments within the trust we are looking for an enthusiastic, hard working person to join our Occupational Therapy team.

The post holder would be a key member of the OT discharge service, responsible for equipment fitting and stock management.

This role will include :-

  • Taking equipment out to patients homes and fitting items (training will be given)
  • Maintenance of stock,
  • Use of computerised ordering and stock control systems,
  • Liaising with outside agencies and patients families,
  • Teaching patients and their families how to use and fit the equipment
  • Cleaning returned equipment,

The post is based at Frimley Park Hospital but applicants need to be able to travel between all three of Frimley Health’s hospitals and go out to patients home.

Our Occupational Therapy team has a friendly, supportive atmosphere and a real team ethic. We know how to look after our staff - making sure they achieve the ideal work-life balance. We are therefore looking for applicants who are highly motivated and share these values, if you do why not come and work with us to provide top class patient care.

 

Successful candidates will be interviewed on 6th Feb 2018
