Meet one of our band 5 OTs who is part of our band 5 development scheme
Hello my name is Fern Mawson and I am a band 5 occupational therapist.
I joined the band 5 development scheme at Airedale in July 2017. This is an innovative rotation scheme for graduate occupational therapists. It is a partnership between Airedale NHS Foundation Trust and Bradford District Care Foundation Trust Occupational Therapy Services. The main aims of the scheme are:
To enable staff to develop a wide range of clinical and organisational knowledge and skills for the benefit of service users in the Bradford and Airedale districts
To recruit and retain newly qualified staff who are actively encouraged to be part of shaping local occupational therapy services for the future,
