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.

Our Occupational Therapy Department is growing and we are now actively recruiting to new positions. So if you have just qualified and want to quick start your new beginning as an Occupational Therapist or if you are ready to take a next step within your career and want to be part of a growing and forward thinking team than look no further!

You will thrive on building professional relationships and working in collaboration with the multi-disciplinary team (MDT), patient and their carer/relatives and other members of the local health. You will promote smooth, efficient and safe discharges throughout the Trust and facilitate service improvement and integration with community services and other providers.
