An exciting opportunity has arisen for the post of Head of Acute Occupational Therapy (OT) and Physiotherapy (PT).

The post will be expected to deputise for and support the Head of Acute Therapies in ensuring the operational and professional day to day running of both teams, including the direct line management of the Clinical Leads within each of these acute departments.

The post-holder can have a background as a Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist and will work collaboratively with our other Heads of Departments within the Therapies Cluster. The post holder will ensure that staffing levels within the teams are appropriately managed, keeping the rotas in each of these areas covered and ensuring adequate capacity is in place to be able to ensure smooth running of the services. The post holder will also have budgetary responsibility for both the OT and PT budgets.

The post holder will represent the departments at Trustwide meetings and support the professional leadership and development of the services. They will be actively involved in Governance, HR, Finance and Performance of the services.

The role will ensure continuity of service in the absence of the Head of Acute Therapies to enable all work streams to continue.
