What is it like around here?

We asked some AHP colleagues who work in our children's services what it is like being part of the team here at Whittington Health: 


 Working as an AHP in integrated care organisation

Whittington Health NHS Trust is an integrated care organisation, which means that we join up patient care across our acute hospital and community based services. You will work as part of an integrated therapy team, which offers a brilliant opportunity to learn from a wide range of professionals. When patients are referred to us, the multi-disciplinary therapy team comes together to assess what is needed. Physiotherapists, pharmacists, mental health workers, community matrons, occupational therapists and technicians look creatively at what will support a client to do what they want to do and prevent them going to hospital, to support them if they do need to go into hospital and to ensure that we can get them home safely as soon as they are ready. 
Our patients and clients will all have different goals and ambitions, they may wish to regain independence, return to work, be part of their community, go to the pub, church, mosque or be able to wash and dress themselves. We each assess what contribution we can make and not only act with speed and sensitivity but also communicate well with our colleagues. Our patients are at the heart of everything we do.
