North Bristol NHS Trust is a large teaching trust that provides specialist regional services including neurosurgery, renal medicine, burns and plastics, orthopaedics and major trauma. The occupational therapy service is predominantly based within the new Brunel building at Southmead Hospital which has excellent facilities including therapy rooms, a large ADL kitchen and purpose designed splint room. The wards have 75% single rooms, which are equipped with overhead tracking hoists, ensuite toilets and level access showers.

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join our inpatient team, providing a service to elective orthopaedics. You will need to be flexible and willing to work in an acute fast paced environment, where prompt assessment and early decision making are necessary to manage complex cases through the acute pathway to discharge. Good multidisciplinary team working exists with close links to community partners.

We run a preceptorship programme for new graduates and there are various other training opportunities to help you develop your knowledge and skills. Senior support is always on hand and regular supervision is provided.
