We are seeking an Occupational Therapist to work within our hospital wards at Woodbourne Priory Hospital.  Suitable candidates will have a degree in Occupational Therapy (MSc pre-registration or BSc) and registration with HCPC.  The role involves applying OT interventions 1-to-1 with patients and also leading group work, and experience of both is highly desired.

As an Occupational Therapist, you will support our patients to engage in self-care, productive and recreational groups.
