West Essex Wheelchair Service provides a high quality posture management and mobility service to the people of West Essex from our base in Bishop's Stortford. We are looking for an experienced occupational therapist or physiotherapist with previous wheelchair service experience to join our small dedicated team.

This is an innovative new post with the option of some home working if desired. The job will mainly involve screening of the more complex referrals, liaising with clients, carers and HCPs by phone to gather further information, evaluating the information to decide on the appropriate pathway for the client. Some clinical cover and attendance at monthly team meetings will be required.

The successful applicant will be a forward thinking, enthusiastic therapist with excellent communication skills. You must be able to work autonomously whilst being an active member of the team. The service is largely paper free so good IT skills are essential. Previous experience using SystmOne would be beneficial but training will be given.
