We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Band 6 Occupational Therapist to join Snowdrop Ward when it re-opens after a period of refurbishment at the end of 2022 (prior to this the successful candidate will work within the Occupational Therapy and Reablement Team on Kingsley Ward- this is on the same geographical site).

We are located close to Southampton and Winchester City, with great transportation links to London by road (M27/M3) and rail (direct to Waterloo), as well as the beautiful New Forest National Park.

You will work initially within the Occupational Therapy Team and Reablement Team based at Melbury Lodge, based on Kingsley Ward- an inpatient Adult Mental Health Ward.

Our Reablement Team consist of a small group of specialist mental health professionals who work in the community- and provide great recovery facilities and services to our service users.

You will then move to Snowdrop Ward when it re-opens, and you will be the Occupational Therapist on this ward, supported by junior staff.

As a member of both teams, you will:
  • Work with service users, short term, or longer term to help develop skills
  • Carry out Occupational Therapy assessments and interventions
  • Work within a larger MDT
  • Put your service user and their goals at the heart of the work you do
  • Support students on practice placement and more junior members of the team
  • Work within a supportive team

This is an exciting opportunity for the successful applicant to be part of the re-opening of the ward and help develop the therapy service within this.

For more information contact; Colleen Grice (Occupational Therapy and Reablement Team Manager) on 01962 897744.

Any attachments will be accessible after you click to apply.
