Could you make hospital discharge a better experience for patients and their families?

If the answer is yes then this fixed term post is for you.

Some patients who need to transfer to a nursing home or a residential home following an episode of acute hospital, together with their relatives and friends, experience difficulties in choosing a home. This post will support these patients to choose and transfer to an appropriate nursing or residential care home in a timely way.

As a Care Home Liaison Worker, you will enjoy the challenge of working in a busy, often pressurised, environment and have excellent communication skills to work effectively with people to facilitate timely discharge.

There will also be the opportunity to develop your skills regarding Continuing Health Care as part of this post.

The post holder should have good experience of multi-disciplinary working, comprehensive knowledge of issues relating to timely discharge from hospital and excellent ‘people skills’.

Secondments will be considered if supported by your current line manager.
