You will have the opportunity to support QI projects and other initiatives, provide clinical supervision and reflective practice to staff. You will input into the governance processes of acute services to provide assurances that the service is providing high-quality, clinically effective, and safe care. Working within our team as a therapist will give you the opportunity to help shape and develop our specialist service, to ensure our service users receive outstanding care.
