South Hardwick PCN is seeking Care Co-ordinators to work alongside and support a multi-disciplinary team, to provide care to our housebound and patients residing in care or residential homes. This is an exciting opportunity to be at the forefront of the delivery of our new Team Up/Ageing Well model of care. The role will operate across the traditional health and social care organisational boundaries, including with our GP practice partners, Community Rapid Response services and Falls services, ambulance and out of hours services to help clinically deliver the service on a day-to-day basis. The aim for the service is to ultimately provide a holistic approach to acute on day/rapid response services, enhanced health in care homes and enhanced proactive care for older people with frailty and patients with multi-faceted health problems.
Main duties of the job
The Care Co-ordinators will be part of the Acute Home Visiting Team (AHVT), who are responsible for managing planned long-term care. The Care Co-ordinators are a pivotal role to the AHVT and will be the interface between service users, families, carers, primary, community and secondary care, social care, mental health, out of hours services and voluntary organisations. You will also contribute to tackling health inequalities in health and social care particularly regarding individuals with long-term conditions and maintain IT based information systems and take responsibility to produce performance data, analyse and report for the service. You will be responsible for co-ordinating, integrating and delivering support to patients, and ensure effective and synchronised care is available to patients, proactively identifying their personalised care needs. You may be required to perform minor clinic observations such as basic monitoring, recording of vital signs or blood pressure monitoring. Appropriate training and support will be provided as required. This is an evolving service, so you will have the opportunity to contribute to the development of Team Up! and the Home Visiting Service if you wish to.
