Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust has been rated as Good by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

We are a responsive and innovative Foundation Trust that places our values of Caring, Safe and Excellent at the heart of everything we do. We take great pride in our staff and believe that investing in you is key to us achieving our vision of outstanding care delivered by outstanding people.

We work with a wide range of partner organisations to deliver care and support to people in their own homes and from a number of hospitals and community bases. We focus on delivering care as close to home as possible.


Oxford Health’s Community Directorate is at the forefront of current government initiatives to move more healthcare closer to home with innovative services delivering better care and outcomes for patients. With prevention at the core of the NHS 10year plan this is a pivotal role in our Therapy team.

The AHP teams in our Community Hospitals work with subacute patients with long term, neurological, orthopaedic, respiratory and frailty conditions as part of a full MDT.

We are looking for a self-motivated, enthusiastic and pro-active Occupational Therapist to join us and actively drive forward the rehabilitation on our wards.

You will need to have a desire to work with older people and bring a solid foundation of assessment, rehabilitation, falls prevention, management of long-term and frailty conditions and will have the opportunity to develop these specialist Occupational Therapy skills further in a supportive, responsive and dynamic team.

Clinical education for students and colleagues within the wider MDT is part of this role and actively encouraged alongside professional development, with frequent CPD opportunities provided.

There is an inspiring team of AHPs across the Community Hospitals and wider Trust who will support your professional development and provide clinical leadership.

This role is based at Didcot and Wallingford Community Hospitals but there is the expectation that flexibility of site may be required.
