Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) is one of the largest acute Trusts in the UK, employing over 25,000 staff.

We are responsible for running a family of ten hospitals across seven separate sites, providing a wide range of services from comprehensive local general hospital care through to highly specialised regional and national services.

We are the main provider of hospital care to approximately 750,000 people in Manchester and Trafford and the single biggest provider of specialised services in the North West of England. We are also the lead provider for a significant number of specialised services including Breast Care, Vascular, Cardiac, Respiratory, Urology Cancer, Paediatrics, Women’s Services, Ophthalmology and Genomic Medicine.

MCR is made up of several teams - Crisis Response, Discharge 2 Assess and intermediate care bed base and community.

As a Band 6 Occupational Therapist it is an exciting time to be part of our continuing and progressive working environment that deals with ‘crisis’ on a daily basis, and where your clinical skillset will contribute to local residents remaining in their own homes and preventing unnecessary A&E attendances.

Our Crisis Response Service operates as an Advanced Practitioner clinically led multi-disciplinary team comprising of Advanced Practitioners, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, nurses, support workers, pharmacists and social care staff. The Service provides a 7 day, extended hours, urgent and timely response to referrals from the ambulance service, acute or primary care and other health or social care professionals. From this a rapid assessment and community intervention for up to 72 hours will support adults ‘in crisis’ with health or social care needs, at home.

MLCO has an ambitious vision for integrated health & social care services across Manchester, including the Crisis Response Service. Applications are welcomed from qualified and experienced staff.

As well as bringing your clinical skills to the team, you will be a champion of integrated community care. You will be a team lead, strong team player, an excellent communicator, adaptable, committed, well organized and work well under pressure. You must be able to travel around various community locations delivering care. You must be motivated, enthusiastic and have proven experience of working in a multi-disciplinary team.
