The successful candidate will be required to work within the busy Hospital Discharge Team South. Experience of working in a hospital setting is not essential, but you will need to have transferrable skills to enable you to facilitate safe, sustainable, complex transfers of care. You will need to work flexibly across any of the Acute and Community Hospitals in the South of the County to maintain system flow and may also be required to work in a multi-disciplinary team within an office based at Royal Derby Hospital for part or all of the working week, although this is negotiable. You will need to be able to manage change and have the ability to maintain positive relationships with health partners and other agencies. You will be committed to working in a person centred way with clients and their families to maintain and maximise their independence, whilst observing the tight timescales in the Care Act and newly imposed DTOC targets.
