West London NHS Trust, Adult Community Rehabilitation Team

With West London NHS Trust's planned expansion and development of its community rehabilitation service in the three boroughs it serves, Hounslow, Ealing and Hammersmith and Fulham. An exciting opportunity is available for an experienced, enthusiastic and forward-thinking Social Worker to join the West London NHS Trust's community rehabilitation team. This is a newly developed team which supports people with complex psychosis in the community. The team will work at a high intensity with a low caseload number and a whole-team commitment to developing close community partnerships.

The role will focus on occupational therapy specific skills rather than generic care-coordination roles, including specialist occupational therapy assessment, individual interventions and delivering the innovative group programme.

To quickly recruit to and embed these new teams, this post attracts a generous "golden hello", which is an extra 10% of your Basic annual salary in the first year.

This post's golden hello attracts an additional £3,136 - £3,789 (Based on increment level) at the end of your 4-month probation period. This only applies to external candidates.

West London NHS Trust has a commitment to enabling staff to access tailored personal development plans. Unlike other NHS organisations, we have not reduced our training budgets. As result, you will have access to several professional development opportunities including:
  • PGDip in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Psychosis
  • Bachelors or Masters degrees
  • Apprenticeships
  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy
  • Assessment of Motor and Process Skills
  • Sensory Integration
  • Open Dialogue
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Non-Medical Prescribing
  • Quality Service, Improvement and Redesign
  • Clinical Supervision
  • Leadership and Management
  • And other personal requests which are in line with the role

The post holder will provide leadership to embed a number of guiding principles including: recovery ways of working, formulation driven care, proactive and positive care, trauma-informed care and least restrictive practice. These opportunities provide a fantastic way of progressing to more senior positions in the service where there are existing vacancies.

The community rehabilitation teams will provide support for people with complex care needs related to psychosis and (where relevant) co-existing substance use and physical health problems. With a multidisciplinary and whole-team approach, these services will have an emphasis on delivering individualised and recovery-focussed care for people.

Importantly, our care will be provided close to peoples' their communities, social networks and homes, enabling people to transition away from restrictive settings. Therefore, the teams will be key partners in supporting the flow of patients from inpatient to supported and independent accommodations.

With the team expansion, this will be a perfect opportunity for the successful applicant to contribute, make a difference and shape community occupational therapy in the rehabilitation service, to make it more flexible, responsive and accessible. This role will offer you a chance not only develop your specialist clinical skills but also give you opportunity to contribute to service development.
