Occupational Therapy Team Lead - Band 7 (Permanent)

Health Care of the Older Person (HCOP)

We are looking to recruit an experienced, dynamic, innovative and forward-thinking Occupational Therapist with excellent communication and organisational skills to lead the Health Care of Older People (HCOP) Occupational Therapy team at Nottingham University Hospitals (NUH).

HCOP is a busy in-patient team covering 10 wards located across both the QMC and City hospital campuses. This is an ideal opportunity for those with passion and expert knowledge in the management of people with frailty in an acute setting and in treating older people with complex physical and cognitive issues.

You will have excellent leadership skills and will be expected to work collaboratively alongside the HCOP Physiotherapy lead and the HCOP OT Advanced Practitioners, to lead the acute HCOP therapy team in delivering the highest quality and evidence-based care.

You will lead and support service improvement both within Occupational Therapy and the wider HCOP service, proactively engaging with colleagues across the Greater Nottinghamshire discharge pathways to facilitate consistency of service delivery and innovation. Excellent time management, resilience, organisation and prioritisation skills are essential for delivery of an efficient and effective service.

Your time will be split between clinical work and non-clinical time. You will be responsible for the operational management of a large team of occupational therapists and activity co-ordinators. You will be responsible for the supervision and appraisals of the senior team and work closely with team members to develop their skills to enable them to make difficult decisions and work with complex patients independently. You will need to assess and manage risk and proactively challenge others about risk.

Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust has a very close working relationship with the University of Nottingham and other institutions of higher education. The team lead is expected to support student placements within the team and provide formal and informal training at a multitude of levels.

NUH supports seven day working to benefit patients and you will be required to work flexibly across seven days within this post. You will be responsible for planning and working on the HCOP weekend working rota across campus.
