We currently have an exciting opportunity in the Bournemouth and Christchurch for someone who is passionate about health and social care to be at the forefront of developments in Community Services.

The role of Health and Social Care Co-ordinator is pivotal in bringing services together in order to provide seamless care for frail and vulnerable individuals.

You will need to have excellent organisation skills and be a skilled communicator, as the role is integral to the development of integrated and co-ordinated services. A good level of IT experience/computer skills is required as managing data on a daily basis will be required.

You would need to have previous experience in a health or social care environment (or similar) and have excellent administration skills to communicate between primary care, community services and hospitals (physical and mental health), local authority, acute trusts and voluntary services.

You will work alongside clinicians, patients, carers, statutory and voluntary agencies connected to the care of the individual patient to proactively support an effective assessment and the development of an integrated personal plan of care, to assist in avoidance of unplanned admissions and facilitate timely hospital discharge.

The hours of work will be 37.5 over 5 days which may include weekends and bank holidays. Full driving licence and access to a car for work is essential as you will need to travel to meetings.
