''A great place to be cared for; a great place to work''

University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay has been nationally recognised as the UK’s most inclusive NHS organisation. As such we have a firm commitment to strengthening the diversity of our workforce, and therefore welcome and encourage applications from likeminded people who can support our ambition to become effortlessly inclusive. We are particularly keen to hear from protected groups – including BAME, LGBT+ and people with a disability.

We are looking for a highly motivated Band 6 OT  to join the care of the elderly team at FGH. The chosen practitioners will be able to work independently and as part of the multidisciplinary team to provide holistic care to frail elderly patients using tools such as early ED reviews, comprehensive assessments, early discharge planning and community links to ensure appropriate care for each individual.


Whilst some knowledge of frailty and frailty syndromes is important for this role it is expected that the appointees will have opportunities to further their knowledge and skills in this area and also be involved in developing the service to allow for the expanding elderly population.


Anyone newly appointed to the trust will be subject to the completion of a satisfactory 6 month probationary period (this includes bank staff). This will give the new staff member an opportunity to become familiar with the role and working environment.
