Being born from NHS Bromley’s community provider unit we have been providing community services to the people of Bromley for many years and we have a wealth of experience.

Bromley Healthcare is a great place to work. The unique way we deliver services and offer everyone who works here a voice, means that your career with us will be rewarding. Social Enterprises are a fairly new and exciting way to deliver healthcare, offering many of the traditional advantages of the NHS (such as terms and conditions, excellent training and development) with the freedom for innovation by being able to reinvest any surpluses we make into the community.

Children's Occupational Therapy Assistant - Band 4

£22,549 - £24,882 + HCAS £3,898 per annum

Due to new funding into our service, we are now able to advertise new positions in our team! If you would like to help drive forward a service with your enthusiasm, creativity and energy - then come and join and us!

Your role will be to support us in delivering blocks of therapy, making adjustments to specialist equipment, and supporting the team with clinical administration. We are a friendly team, co-located with other health professionals, and you will work either in clinic, schools or homes.

The role is specifically for an assistant to work in the Children's Occupational Therapy department, although there may be opportunities to work within physiotherapy if this interests you - and so our job description covers both. However, if you are interested in working in just children's occupational therapy - this role could be for you.

If you are curious about the role and would like an informal discussion, please do not hesitate to contact the service lead for children’s occupational therapy, Annita Wahab, on mobile number: 07784 362 261 or email: awahab@nhs.net
