The Service supports an integrated approach to managing the care of people who require support upon discharge from hospital, so the role will involve working alongside occupational therapists, community care officers, health colleagues and care providers.

You will also need to undertake safeguarding activity if required.
You will need to be HCPC registered and have knowledge and experience of relevant legislation. You will have the ability to undertake innovative assessments and care planning with individuals, carers and their personal support networks.
We promote personalisation focusing on the wellbeing of the individual. Through care planning we strive for increased independence, choice and control by enable people to direct their own support. You will gain extensive experience in the field of adult social care, safeguarding practice and multi-disciplinary working.
You should be able to demonstrate a commitment to supporting people with the right care and information at the right time to help prevent future need, enable independence and promote positive wellbeing that will empower people to live the lives they want to.
The post will require you to visit service users in the community to undertake reviews, so a driving licence is essential as is the ability to respond to situations quickly and flexibly.
