Current Locum position? Band 7 Community Rehab OT
What do you enjoy about being a locum? I love the versatility of my work as a locum, I get to experience different clinical areas helping to continually build upon my skills as a practitioner. I enjoy networking with other therapists and meeting new teams, seeing new ways of working. Locuming provides you with flexibility and choice helping to keep that work life balance.
Most memorable moment within your career? Taking a service development post at a newly opened elderly rehab ward. I was able to educate staff on the importance of rehabilitation, dementia care and the role of an OT. I gained so much pleasure from setting up activity groups such as quizzes, reminiscence groups, gym exercises and lunch club. It was a great opportunity to use my skills and make a positive change to the service provided to this patient group.
