There may be a requirement to support other clinical areas according to service need.

The successful candidates should be adaptable and accepting of change to support the future development of these posts. 

Both these posts will provide support to qualified Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists both in direct patient treatment and non-clinical duties associated with the running of the service.
