Are you an OT who wants to do something different within an acute trust?

We are looking for the right OT with the energy to be part of our team of Band 6 Occupational Therapists in Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (HHFT). These are nine-monthly rotational posts, with opportunities to work across our Winchester (RHCH), Basingstoke (BNHH) and Andover (AWMH) sites in clinical areas including:
  • Inpatient rehabilitation - Kingfisher ward, AWMH
  • Medicine - RHCH & BNHH
  • Coronary Care, Oncology & Gynaecology - BNHH
  • Surgery - RHCH & BNHH
  • Long Term Conditions and Elderly Care - RHCH & BNHH
  • Front door (Emergency Department & Acute Assessment Unit) - RHCH & BNHH


Main duties of the job

In addition to the above we are excited to be trialling a Therapy Supported Discharge Scheme and see our Occupational Therapists as vital to this service, ensuring patients can be discharged in a timely manner but still receive the assessments and treatment plans they need.

The job involves supporting the Band 7 in caseload management, leadership, and meetings, and having direct line management responsibility for junior staff with vast opportunities for own professional learning and supporting others to learn.

This is a great chance to work in a forward thinking, patient focussed service and to be part of the exciting opportunities that this offers.

For more information, or if you have any questions, please get in touch. We would love to hear from you.
