To be successful here you need to welcome change - the service continually develops and employees are encouraged to make suggestions and views are listened to.
Medvivo appealed to me as it's a local, small company and I was keen to work outside of the NHS. I also wanted a chance to use my skills in different ways as well as develop new skills as Discharge Liaison is an 'emerging role' for Occupational Therapy.
I was an Occupational Therapist in a rehab service.
I work at an acute hospital assisting with discharge planning alongside the Integrated Discharge Service, advising on the appropriate discharge pathway for patients in Wiltshire.
I like the variety of hospital and office based work as well as working in a multi-disciplinary team of NPs, Paramedics, Physios, OTs and Assistant Practitioners.
Educating hospitals on the role of Acute Trust Liaison and the benefits it can bring to their service.
Welcoming change - the service continually develops and employees are encouraged to make suggestions and views are listened to.
I have monthly one-to-ones with my Line Manager and regular in-service training. I also get the opportunity to have students on placements.
I am full-time so this doesn't benefit me, however it works well for part-timers.
I'd advise them to spend time prior to applying getting to know what the roles entail - Medvivo welcomes people to visit informally.
