Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust works across nine London boroughs and Hertfordshire. We are rated Good by the Care Quality Commission and are ranked among top NHS employers. Community healthcare is our focus and our passion. We champion the role of community health professionals to make sure our patients get great care closer to home.
An exciting opportunity has opened for a Case Finder with the PACE Team Service (Post Acute Care Enablement) based at the Royal Free Hospital/Barnet General Hospital. You will be working along side the medical teams in the acute wards to identify PACE patients medically fit and able to be sent out for the remaining 1-5 days of their hospital care at home while remaining under the care of the acute medical teams.
Case finders role is to assess these patient completing the assessments and referring the patients to the community PACE team who deliver post acute care in patients' homes. This is a cross-organisational service model that offers medically stable hospital patients the opportunity to be cared for at home. PACE ensures patients get the medical support, clinical monitoring and interventions within their home environment that they require for 1-5 days post discharge. PACE case-finder teams are based in the acute hospital to identify patients pro-actively who can be safely treated in their own homes. Community based teams then deliver complex packages of medical and therapeutic care that would normally keep patients in hospital such as intravenous antibiotic therapy and post-operative wound care. We are currently recruiting to our PACE case-finder teams and seek to appoint an appropriately experience nurse or therapist.
Candidates should be experienced nurses or therapists with sound knowledge and proven experience in acute and community clinical environments. You should have the ability to adapt to a fast moving service and the clinical skills and aptitude to work as a lone worker in a larger team. The candidate should have excellent communication skills and comprehensive clinical assessment skills, and the ability to deal with challenges confidently.
The service cover 7 days a week and staff will be expected to work weekends. We do not cover bank holidays. Normal hours of work are 8am - 6pm week days, covered flexibly with colleagues, and weekends 9am - 5pm.
You must have appropriate UK professional registration.
