King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has a large Therapy department with 250+ therapists from Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy and Speech and Language Therapy. Each service is organised under a Head of Profession with a Chief of Therapies heading up the services and representing Therapies across the Trust.

We have an exciting position available for a Team Lead Occupational Therapist (band 7), based within the Acute Health & Ageing Unit (aHAU), working as part of the Elderly Care multidisciplinary team.

Working with support of the Clinical Lead OT, this role offers a rewarding and challenging clinical environment.

This ward specialises in assessing, treating and rehabilitating frail older people who require a short stay in hospital.

Multi-disciplinary working is well established in the team and we are looking for an enthusiastic occupational therapist to influence and further develop occupational therapy within this field.
