Locum Band 6 Occupational Therapist - Community Rehabilitation required in Barnet, North London

Hours: Full time, 37.5 hrs
Start date: ASAP
Band: 6
Contract: Locum, ongoing contract

Our client, one of the UK's largest mental health care providers, is looking for a band 6 HCPC registered Occupational Therapist to work within their Intermediate Care multidisciplinary team, which is based out of their North London community hospital.

As an OT, you will help promote independence by working with patients, their families and carers to help them manage more effectively and avoid becoming dependant on long-term care. This includes:
- Rehabilitation following hospital stays
- Support for patients at risk of hospital admission due to exacerbation of existing condition or new acute condition
- Short-term rehabilitation for medically stable patients to enable timely co-ordinated discharge from hospital.

The team will provide short term nursing and therapy input to adults over 18 years, in most cases for a period of 1-6 week, in the patient's own home environment.

To be successful, you must have proven experience working in a community setting, along with previous NHS Band 6 experience. A clean driving licence is desirable.
