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


Do you want to work for a Trust which

  • values inclusivity?
  • invests in you with ongoing in-service training, development and supervision from expertly trained clinical specialists?
  • is at the start of a transformational journey where collaboration between sector partners is core business?
  • values and invests in YOU?

If this sounds like you why not come and see what UHMBT, the country’s 7th most inclusive employer, has to offer. We are a multi-disciplinary team who would welcome you to join us.

We are looking for an Occupational Therapist to join our Community Therapy Team based in Millom Hospital on the Furness peninsula. You will support the delivery of high quality care to patients in a community Hospital. Therefore you must have the ability to work and travel to various sites across the Trust independent of public transport

The service works closely with the ward MDT, the Integrated Care Communities, local GP's and Adult Social Care for example. The service supports people with a wide variety of conditions including elderly care, frailty and falls, orthopaedics and long term condition management. 

Working together to deliver care to patients you will need to:

  • have completed a range of core rotations within the NHS as an Occupational Therapist with a desire to develop your clinical skills further
  • demonstrate and evidence your own professional development
  • demonstrate your ability to work independently when necessary
  • Have a friendly and flexible attitude, which is patient focused and dedicated to quality care
  • use your expertise to supervise and teach physiotherapy students and other staff within the service

What will we offer you?

  • A supportive team environment which values the input of the team
  • A structured two-way appraisal process to support your ongoing development
  • In-house recognition schemes
  • A focus on employee involvement where your contribution is valued
  • Encouragement for your professional development
  • A relocation package for prospective applicants living more than 60 miles away
  • Opportunity to be part of our transformational programme of combining acute and community services
  • Excellent location of our sites near the Lake District to support a healthy worklife balance

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.
