The post holder will be responsible for jointly leading the Acute Therapies Team to provide a high level, 7-day service to all patients within A&E, Clinical Decisions Unit (CDU) and Acute Medical Unit (AMU). They will work closely with the Band 7 Occupational Therapists, and alongside another Band 7 Physiotherapist.

Good knowledge of discharge planning and community services will be essential for this role. Previous experience within community therapy teams would be beneficial.

At UCLH we are committed to delivering top-quality patient care, excellent education and world class research.
