Are you looking for a new and exciting change in your career, or perhaps you are looking to build upon your existing neuro rehab experience.  If so, we would love to offer you the opportunity to come and work as a B7 Occupational Therapist in our highly respected, specialist, Neuro-rehabilitation Enhanced Transition Team (NETT). 

NETT is proud of our good reputation and the feedback that we receive from our patients and their families.  NETT have been runners up for the LAMMY awards for ‘Team of the year’ and our innovative service has also been nominated for a HSJ award.   

NETT is a community neuro rehab team for adults with a neurological condition that live in Lambeth and Southwark.  Our multi-disciplinary team consists of a Rehabilitation Consultant, a Clinical Manager, a Clinical Psychologist and Psychology Assistant, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, a Speech and Language Therapist, Social Workers and Rehabilitation Assistants.  Our small knit team work closely together to provide a high quality, client-centred, goal focussed, efficient, responsive and intensive service for our patients.

NETT is part of a much wider community neuro rehabilitation service that includes four other teams, the stroke service, the neuro conditions team, the 2B neuro therapy beds service at the Pulross Center and a Neuro Navigator service. 

As part of our NETT Service, you will be expected to contribute to multidisciplinary service development and improvement initiatives and will also be expected to supervise and support junior staff, and train others.

This position would suit individuals keen to enhance their specialism in the rehabilitation of neurological conditions whilst developing strategic planning and managerial skills. As a B7 Occupational Therapist you will have significant postgraduate experience working with adults with neurological conditions, with some experience working in neuro rehabilitation.  

Our staff are well-supported through supervision, the appraisal process and our programme of in-service training in addition to the benefits of belonging to Guys and St Thomas’ Foundation Trust and Kings Health Partners, an Academic Healthcare Centre.

NETT and our neuro rehabilitation service, continually strive to improve service delivery and contributions from all staff are highly valued.
