An opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and organised person to join our locality team as one of our Health and Social Care Co-ordinators.

The role is pivotal to bring services together in order to provide seamless care for frail and vulnerable individuals living in West Dorset. It is an exciting opportunity to be at the forefront of developments in Community Services.

The successful applicant will need to have excellent organisation skills and be a tenacious and skilled communicator as the role is integral to the development of integrated and co-ordinated services. You would need to have previous experience in a health or social care environment and have excellent administration skills to co-ordinate communications and meetings 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 are flexible to meet the needs of the service and to the right candidate but we will be looking for a minimum of 3 days a week.

Employment in this post requires a Standard Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.  The DBS levies a charge of £26 and the Trust will recover this cost in instalments from your first 3 salary payments.  This will only apply to candidates who are new to the Trust and not internal staff.  Applicants who subscribe to the DBS update service and are able to present a valid DBS certificate will not incur a charge.
