The Urgent Care Pathway is an initiative by Buckinghamshire Mental Health Services, as part of Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, to meet the demands of the Ten-Year Plan to provide Crisis Response
and Home Treatment Services by 2021.

Clinicians employed into the pathway will be a part of a developing service aimed at supporting our most vulnerable patients and their families in the least restrictive setting possible, by providing a variety of highly intensive psycho-social interventions that enable the person to regain or maintain independence.

The post holder will provide assessment, signposting and short-term treatment where required, to all new service users entering the services, together with any crisis support required for new and existing
service users. The team will operate 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year. This post will evolve to meet the requirements of the NHS 10-year plan with the post holder’s full involvement.

The post holder will work within the Recovery Model and will play a key role in developing the interventions required for CORE Crisis Fidelity. They will work as part of our team managing the care for a caseload of patients, liaising with other professionals, and reviewing the patients care under Care Programme Approach. Additionally, they will provide support to service users in crisis when required. This will become the core business of the team. The practitioner will also work with the team in delivering our responsibilities under the Care Act 2014 with regards the assessment and care planning of Social Care needs.

CRHTT Occupational Therapists hold a varied caseload, including complex and at times highly complex cases, offering time limited, evidence based, focused Occupational Therapy interventions. These interventions may be standalone interventions or offered as part of an occupational therapy process that spans CRHTT and inpatient care. CRHTT Occupational Therapists will work in conjunction with inpatient and AMHT Occupational
Therapists to deliver seamless transition of interventions between teams where residual/continued assessment or intervention is required.

We would welcome clinicians who are keen to develop or further enhance their skills in a variety of areas and to help shape this exciting and developing service. We will fully support you to develop and enhance your skills and confidence to reach your full potential.
