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 within the Mid Bedfordshire Directorate, Community Mental Health Team for a Band 6 Occupational Therapist to cover maternity leave.
We are looking to recruit an OT with past experience of working with adults with mental health difficulties and /or dementia to join our busy community multi-disciplinary team which also delivers a Memory Assessment Service. To succeed in this role, you will have good work load management skills, demonstrate sound clinical assessment skills and offer specialist OT interventions utilising assessment and evaluation tools drawn from the Model of Human Occupation and/or AMPS.
