Rachel joined the OT team at Blackpool Victoria Hospital (BVH) as part of a rotational post where she spent time on community rehabilitation for older people, surgery, orthopaedics, and general medicine. She went on to be a member of a new team development based on MAU and A&E, called the integrated assessment team, which continued into an extended permanent team at BVH.

Rachel returned to her local area and joined the acute medical team at Royal Blackburn Hospital where she has worked on the elderly wards, oncology, gastro, endocrine, cardiology and A&E. She has been involved in a core group, evaluating the “Frailty Test for Change” work, in partnership with the Royal College of Physicians. This work has informed the frailty pathway, which is due to commence this year in RBH.

The development of the Falls Response Service, in partnership with NWAS, is an exciting opportunity that Rachel is honoured to be a part of. This potential to revolutionise ways of working in ELHT gives her optimism that service modernisation is the start of things to come for East Lancashire’s older community. She has helped the Falls Response Service to be shortlisted for a number of prestigious awards such as Advancing Healthcare Awards, and the Patient Safety Awards.

Doreen Singleton

Professional Lead For Occupational Therapy for Adult Social Care
Cumbria County Council
Doreen Singleton, Professional lead for Occupational Therapy in Adults Social Care in Cumbria, initially worked in health before moving to Social Services providing services for children and adults. Latterly she has worked in Adult Social Care. She has actively promoted collaboration with occupational therapists across organisations. She believes that this is the key to improving people’s experience when their care and support transfers from one service to another. Identifying training requirements across organisations, and delivering these, such as “risk taking for positive outcomes” has enabled a more consistent understanding of personalised outcomes for people. Similarly the groundwork undertaken between the therapists in the different organisations underpins a whole system approach to a reduced carer handling programme, currently being rolled out across the county. This facilitates benefits to the person receiving care, the provider organisations and the funding body.
