Ama Osei

Team Lead Occupational Therapist

Joined KHFT in July 2016


What does your average day look like at KHFT?

  • Checking on staffing levels in my team and across the department.
  • Going through patient list to see who requires occupational therapy input.
  • Discussing complex patient needs and supporting junior staff with these.
  • Making sure that colleagues who have a heavy caseload are provided with support from other colleagues if needed.
  • Check if there are any DTOC’s (Delayed Transfers of Care) and follow them up.

What makes you proud in your job?

When I have assessed a patient and provided appropriate support and information to them. When I make a difference in a patient’s life no matter how little it may be, it gives me job satisfaction.

What is your highlight of 2018?

Becoming a Team Leader and being able to share my wealth of experience with my colleagues and other staff members. Be it nurses, doctors or HCAs.

Favourite thing about the Festive Season?

It is a season of love.
