ELFT (East London NHS Foundation Trust) is making a positive difference to thousands of people’s lives, providing support so that they can fulfil their potential and enjoy healthy lives.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced Occupational Therapist to work in the
Bedfordshire and Luton Early Intervention in Psychosis Service [EIPS]. The service aims to provide early and sustained engagement to people experiencing a first episode of psychosis. We aim to work with these people to maximise their social and personal recovery by delivering a range of evidence-based interventions within a collaborative framework.
This helps to reduce the impact of a first episode of psychosis, foster hope that recovery is possible and maximises the quality of life of service users and their families.

The post holder is responsible for the community care coordination of a defined caseload of service users experiencing a first episode of psychosis and will work closely with them and their families. The post holder will be required to complete specialist and comprehensive assessment of needs and develop and implement an evidence based plan of care. They will work as part of and be supported by a multi-disciplinary team focusing on recovery and social inclusion. The role will include the use of a range of psycho-social interventions and raising awareness initiatives. Occupational Therapists work as an integral part of Community Teams providing specialist bio-psycho-social interventions.
