North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (formerly known as 5 Boroughs Partnership NHS Foundation Trust until 1st April 2017), provides physical health, mental health and learning disability services across the North West region.

Rotational Occupational Therapist – Open to Students finishing in the next 3 months.

Our opportunity:

We’re recruiting a band 5 Rotational Occupational Therapist for our diverse and friendly services. We are based within Community & Mental Health settings across Knowsley, St Helens, Warrington and Wigan and provide effective clinical support and opportunities for development; therefore willingness to travel and a flexible approach to working is required for this role.

We provide a number of rotations covering all core areas of Occupational Therapy and this is an excellent opportunity to develop your clinical expertise and your career within a wide range of settings including Intermediate Care, Early Stroke Discharge, Pulmonary Rehabilitation, Paediatrics, and Mental Health services. For a detailed description of the rotations on offer and the clinical settings these are provided in, please see the accompanying rotation booklet.

We have a reciprocal agreement with Warrington and Halton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust by offering one of our rotational posts to a member of their staff in exchange for the opportunity for one of our band 5 rotational Occupational Therapists to complete a rotation in their organisation.

This is a brand new venture and partnership that has been endorsed by the rotational staff across both organisations.

To find out more about this exciting opportunity contact us for a conversation or tour of our services.
