The Emergency Department and Acute Medical OT Team at the Princess Royal University Hospital is looking for a motivated and enthusiastic band 6 OT to apply for a static post in Emergency department and the Acute Medical Unit (AMU).

Working on the ED and AMU offers excellent opportunities for developing clinical, managerial and educational skills within a supportive and fast paced learning environment. This is an exciting opportunity to join a developing service and further promote the role of OT within the multi-disciplinary team.

There is an established system for the delivery of clinical governance objectives, CPD and Evidence Based Practice across the service. CPD is encouraged through the Trust appraisal system, as well as through Team CPD Cycles. We encourage journal clubs, formal teaching, skills training and service development, with opportunities to lead and participate in these sessions. Band 6 OTs have regular cross department meetings as part of peer support and networking.
