Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (CWP) supports thousands of vulnerable people across Cheshire and Merseyside.

We provide physical and mental health services, as well as learning disabilities, to a total population of around one million people.

Situated near two thriving cities in Liverpool and Manchester, CWP operates from 66 sites across Cheshire and Merseyside, including Wirral, Chester, Winsford, Crewe, Macclesfield, Sefton and Trafford.

We have been recognised by the Health Service Journal as one of the top places to work in the health service for the last two years running and committed to delivering person centred care.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has rated CWP as ‘Good’ overall, ‘better’ for treatments and ‘Outstanding’ for care.

We offer a variety of roles at all levels, so whether you are just starting out in your career or you are looking to use your skills and experience in a new role, CWP is the right employer for you. 

Apply now to join our skilled and friendly teams and help us to deliver our vision to improve health and wellbeing by providing high quality care.

Visit our ‘Working for us’ pages at www.cwp.nhs.uk to find out more about why you should choose CWP.

We are seeking an enthusiastic, motivated and reliable Band 6 Occupational Therapist who is keen to support and deliver a range of high quality therapeutic interventions to our patients across Chester.

Working within our integrated teams, you will undertake therapeutic interventions using a person centered approach. This will involve providing quality care to patients in their own home or in long term care settings, avoiding unnecessary admission to hospital. As the role involves visiting patients in their own environment, access to transport for work purposes is essential.

An enthusiasm to support our teams to deliver high quality services is a must for this role, and you will also need to demonstrate excellent communication and interpersonal skills with the ability to be adaptable, reliable and approachable.

We are looking for an individual who has previous community experience and can think on their feet and use their own initiative to problem solve and work with their patients to ensure that the patient's goals are met.

We are friendly, compassionate and highly motivated and work hard to deliver the best outcomes possible for our patients and are seeking someone with similar values to come and join us.
