Chance for occupational therapy career at our new PICU

Work is now nearing completion on Oxford Health’s new Meadow Unit PICU (psychiatric intensive care unit) and staff are being recruited to a number of roles.

Amongst the most exciting, according to the Trust’s Head of Allied Health Professions, is the occupational therapist (OT) job.

The role is being offered at two levels – either as a developmental opportunity or at clinical lead level. This means that working at the PICU as an OT will be attractive to those at different stages in their career.

Emma Croft, Oxford Health’s Head of Allied Health Professions for mental health and learning disabilities, explained: “This is a very rare chance to join a new team and service right at the start. It’s not just a new job, but a job you will really make your own.

“People become occupational therapists to support and help people and, at the PICU, the OTs will be working with young people at the most acutely disturbed phase of a their illness serious mental disorder.

“This is where occupational therapists can make a real difference to the young person and their family by helping them on their recovery journey and work with them to build the skills to live their lives.

“Another big reason to apply for these roles is the opportunity to join Oxford Health and be part of the bigger AHP team. It’s a really supportive place to work and develop your career.”
