Senior Occupational Therapist, £31.92ph, Berkshire
Pertemps are recruiting for an experienced and qualified Safe Discharge Therapist (either Senior Occupational Therapist or Physiotherapist) to support people being discharged from hospital with either restarts of existing Care Packages in their own homes, or readmission into a Care Home.

Following a lengthy stay in an Acute Hospital, people have usually deconditioned over their stay and lost confidence. Care homes and Home Care providers are often cautious of taking on complex moving and handling, which can result in more people being cared for in bed unnecessarily. This can lead to further health issues, worsening of mobility, falls and potential contractures.
Through the work of the Safe Discharge Therapist these risks will be greatly reduced, and care staff will be empowered to positive risk take, enabling the individual to reach their maximum potential and well-being. This therapist will support these people and ensure the Care Home or Home Care providers follow any manual handling plans sent home with them

The safe discharge therapist will:

  • Complete face to face visits to ensure a safe transition home and prevent readmission.
  • Oversee any adjustment to existing packages of care and ensure any onward referrals are completed
  • Link with other services such as community physiotherapy team or Early Intervention and Prevention Team if ongoing support has been identified.

This is an agency post and Pertemps can offer you:

  • A Dedicated consultant who has access to all roles across the UK and is available for you to speak to
  • An easy registration process (all done online)
  • Referral schemes and incentives
  • Ongoing compliance managed for you
  • Prompt and reliable payroll and lots more
