We are looking for a Senior Occupational Therapist to join the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead (RBWM) Integrated Care Team. The Integrated Care Team is an innovative new team which combines NHS and social care services, and is part of the NHS England move towards Integrated Care Services. This includes Mental Health, Physical Health, and Social Work members and now we very excited to be adding Occupational Therapy into this.
This multi-professional, multi-agency approach wraps care around the individual. Your role will draw on your clinical expertise in order to react quickly and implement a holistic OT intervention plan to enable the service user to remain safe within their home environment’
We are co-located which means we have easy fluid communication with good access to all information systems. We provide innovative and planned solutions for anyone with joint health and social care needs. We have a daily huddle to work together on all cases, and a monthly Cluster where we are joined by GPs, Paramedics, Social Prescribers and voluntary organisations to plan care for individuals with more complex needs.
As the Integrated Care Team is multi Agency you will input as part of the Optalis Short Term Support and Rehabilitation (STS&R) Team, and also be professionally supported by the Lead OT from the Long-Term Care Team.
We are a highly supportive team, learning from each other and supporting each other with clinical decision making and delivering care.
Our job satisfaction is high in these rewarding roles. Our personal development is supported by our organisations but also by the wider Integrated Care System and as this is a new system there is lots of opportunity to be involved in service development projects, and to input and shape the future of Integrated Care.
