We are looking for Band 6 Occupational Therapist to join our dynamic team within Central Manchester which is a national successful service.

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.
