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 Director of Therapies heading up the services and representing Therapies across the Trust.

The static stroke post offers excellent opportunities for developing specialised clinical skills within Hyper Acute and Rehabilitation environment. You will automatically access excellent clinical supervision from experienced Occupational Therapists.

There is an established system for the delivery of clinical governance objectives, CPD and Evidence Based Practice across the service.

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. There is also opportunity to develop your skills in clinical audit and supervision. Students are regularly on placement from local universities, and as a band 6 OT, this is a fantastic learning opportunity. If you are not yet a Practice Placement Educator, you can be supported in attending appropriate training.
