    PERSONAL STATEMENT:

    I am writing to express my profound interest working in Glasgow (Scotland) any setting and supporting individuals to achieve health, well being and life satisfaction through participating in their meaningful  occupation. For the past 2years I have been working   on a band 5 rotational post with Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.   Currently, I am  working on an intermediate care rehabilitation ward. My aim is to serve patients using the skills I have gained during my clinical experience as a rotational occupational therapist.  I feel the knowledge I acquired in a variety of settings, with a variety of patients would make me an asset to the new team.

     

    While on my rotational post, I worked with many elderly patients, planning and executing treatment plans for individuals at risk of falls, amputations, cardiovascular diseases and mental health problems and neurological conditions. Working in Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust made me understand the complexity of care needed by individuals with multiple medical conditions. These individuals present significant safety considerations and require occupational therapists to have broad knowledge and understanding on the impact of different conditions on an individual’s occupational performance. This knowledge ensures the safety of patients and others entering the hospital environment is maintained in line with local and national policies. I worked closely with patients to define their individual goals and following the occupational therapy process. I had the responsibility for organising my own caseload, addressing occupational performance needs and skill deficits and evaluating individual progress using available evidence-based tools. I successfully planned my own case load and ensuring proper documentation was completed in a timely manner. Having my own caseloads required constructive management to any barriers which affect written and verbal communication, effective time management, the ability to prioritise caseloads and delegate responsibilities to occupational therapy assistants. I learnt the importance of affective delegation, teamwork and referring to other health care professionals and senior staff when appropriate. I have also developed teaching and mentoring skills when demonstrating moving and handling techniques of amputee patients to support workers. I am also aware of my limitations as a Band 5 therapist  and when to seek advice and support from senior staff.

     

    I collaborated effectively with members of multidisciplinary team and in clinical meetings to ensure occupational therapy treatment programmes were successful in contributing to a comprehensive treatment approach. When planning patients discharge it involved different team members who would be providing on going community support. This often-required liaising with nurses, social workers, families and community teams and keeping accurate records of the care needed in the home setting. I often contributed to team meetings when planning patient discharge. I feel that working as part of the team in a clinical environment will give me the opportunity to advance my skills and knowledge. I also carried out joint assessments with physiotherapists and speech and language therapists to facilitate client centred holistic intervention for individuals with complex needs. This joint role increased my knowledge and respect for other professionals.  

     

    Through these experiences, I have developed soft skills such as critical observation, conflict resolution, patience, tolerance and clear communication. I believe these experiences would allow me to achieve success working with as a disability assessor with Scotland   diverse population. I am confident that these experiences will allow me to be a productive member of your team, and I am eager to contribute my knowledge of occupational therapy techniques to benefit your organization.  For the past 2years, I have been self-motivated, organised and capable of working under pressure. I have a practical approach to problem solving and a drive to see things through to completion. I enjoy working on my own initiative or in a team. I am reliable, hardworking and eager to learn and have a genuine interest in caring.

     

    I have worked with patients with challenging behaviours, neurological disorders, mental health and other physical health problems. I understand the importance of evidence-based care to meet individual goals.  I believe in therapeutic use of self and continuous learning to keep abreast with evidence-based care.  In my current role I take responsibility to update my training needs including inviting external equipment providers to demonstrate equipment and enhance the team’s continuing professional development needs. Additionally, I am available to support a colleague if faced with a challenging situation and escalate if it is beyond my scope. I actively participate in our weekly peer meeting which we use as a platform to identify effective interventions for complex cases to meet patients’ needs safely.

    My  Core Values emphasis is on the commitment to providing  quality of care to the best of my abilities. This aspires to the highest standards of excellence and professionalism in the provision of high-quality care that is safe, effective treatment following up to date evidence based approach and focused on patient experience as identified by Lord Darzi report. With the aim to earning the trust placed in the organization  by service users and their families, by insisting on quality and striving to get the basics right every time: safety, maintaining confidentiality, professionalism,  accountability, dependable service and maintaining good communication skills . Excellent communication and good interpersonal skills are paramount when caring for patients. It is important not only to establish what the patient wants and needs but also the patients families involvement as emphasized in the Care Act. Dealing with members of the multi-disciplinary team, effective teamwork is imperative, providing patients and families with continuity of care and the clinical excellence they require from all staff. The value of "working together for patients" is central to working with vulnerable adults. I would prioritise patients safety when caring for them within the organisation . Healthcare workers are expected to act and work together in the interests of patients, my priorities are always putting vulnerable adults and their families   interest  first. The experience I have gained from previous jobs in different health care sectors for the past 20years  will ensure that working within the multi-disciplinary team , will provide quality care to patients involving their carers and local communities ensuring that we are providing services tailored to local needs. I value providing compassionate care, which  ties closely with respect and dignity as individuals.. Individual patients, carers and relatives deserve  be treated with sensitivity and kindness. I believe providing  care and  support  includes alleviating pain, distress, and making people feel valued, recognising that their concerns are important. Above all compassionate care is a fundamental aspect of health care, and is an important value that is embedded in occupational therapy professional standards and codes of practice, which I aught to abide to as a duty of care. On the other hand, compassion in Practice outlined 6 ‘Cs’ associated with compassionate care (care, compassion, courage, communication, commitment and competence) which was emphasised in  the Francis Report .By practising compassion requires a facilitating social architecture promoting norms of trust, concern and empathy, in which compassion is treated as a collective responsibility, rooted in well-defined practices across the whole range of staff roles. Hence, although compassionate care calls for specific skills and knowledge, which can be exhibited by individual health care professional , it must also be facilitated through an environment that provides required structural resources like staffing levels, in things like culturally competent in care and transformation leadership. Patients are always anxious and vulnerable, being kind to patients and taking , taking enough time to listen, by providing reasonable choices and treating each individual with respect often make difference to individual patients. If I am successful in my application I will maintain the organizational  values of providing highest level of care. I would be mindful of diversity and be inclusive treating patients .
