Senior Occupational Therapist -  Band 6

Neurology rotation

Permanent - 37.5 hours per week

King’s Occupational Therapy department is set within a multi-therapy suite working alongside Physiotherapy and Speech and Language Therapy. With over 60 members in the OT department, we have a sound professional structure with a Lead Occupational Therapist and a range of clinical specialists, many of who are leaders in their field. This ensures a good system for the delivery of clinical governance objectives, CPD and EBP.

King’s College Hospital Rotation schemes offer excellent opportunities for developing clinical skills. You will automatically access excellent clinical supervision from experienced Occupational Therapists across a range of neuro-specialities.

Each rotation is seven to nine months in duration and is currently across Neuro rehabilitation (Orpington site), Neurosurgery, Neuromedicine, Major Trauma and Paediatrics (Denmark Hill). Each rotation will require the completion of a project as part of the learning objectives and active participation in team teaching. Band 6 posts have the opportunity to access funds for external training; however, the internal resources of the department also provide opportunity for increasing clinical skills and knowledge. Rotational Band 6 has regular cross department meetings as part of peer review and networking.

You must have a degree or MSc in Occupational Therapy and be HCPC registered. A minimum of 6 months acute experience and 6 months in treating patients with neurological and complex needs are also essential to this post.
