This is an exciting opportunity to join the busy Hospital Discharge Teams contributing to improving the flow of Derbyshire residents and admission avoidance. There are 2 posts, one will be working for the North Hospitals Team based within A&E at Chesterfield Royal Hospital and the other will be working for the South Hospitals Team based within A&E at The Royal Derby Hospital. Experience of working in a hospital setting is not essential, but you will need to have transferrable skills and possess initiative to enable you to facilitate discharge home or transfers of care to other settings, thus avoiding full hospital admissions when not necessary. You will need to be able to manage change and have the ability to maintain positive relationships with health partners and other agencies. Experience of working in a Mental Health Team would be desirable though not essential. These posts are initially on a fixed term basis for one year and could be offered on a secondment basis subject to the approval of your current manager.
