Job Description

Occupational Therapist - New Eating Disorders Hospital    

Derby    

£30,000 - £40,000 (may be negotiable DOE)    

           

Remit    

Compass Associates are excited to be working with an internationally renowned provider of specialist eating disorders' services to recruit a full time permanent Occupational Therapist.    

     

You would be based at their brand-new, 17-bedded hospital (in between Derby and Nottingham) for children and young adults with severe and complex eating disorders who have been referred from other Tier 4 CAMHS services for more specialist inpatient treatment. Patients are either detained under the Mental Health Act or admitted voluntarily and may have additional mental health conditions, autism spectrum conditions or Pervasive Arousal Withdrawal Syndrome. Due to the severity of their eating disorders, many will require NG feeding and the focus of treatment is physical and mental stabilisation, followed by weight management and restoration.    

     

The hospital will be divided into two wards; a CAMHS ward for children aged 8-18 and a transition ward for young adults, aged 18-25, who are transitioning between CAMHS and adult mental health services. When completed, the hospital will have an onsite school, extensive outdoor spaces, therapy and consultation rooms, communal lounges/dining rooms, Occupational Therapy kitchen, garden room and activity spaces. Although the only Occupational Therapist on site, you'd work within a wider MDT which will include a Consultant Psychiatrist, Specialty Doctor, Clinical Psychologist, Social Worker, Dietitian, Family Therapist, Ward Managers and specialist Nurses.    

     

This is an exciting opportunity for an Occupational Therapist who has CAMHS and/or eating disorders experience as you'd be able to apply your clinical experience, skills and knowledge as well as be involved in developing a brand-new service.    

     

Essential criteria:

Degree in Occupational Therapy

HCPC registration

CAMHS and/or Eating Disorders experience

 

Commutable from: Derby, Nottingham, Loughborough, Burton-on-Trent, Lichfield, Uttoxeter, Ashbourne, Mansfield, Alfreton, Chesterfield, Melton Mowbray, Coalville, Swadlincote, Bingham and nearby towns.
