Warwickshire County Council is embarking on an exciting programme of work with health, social care and care provider partners. The aim is to improve patient flow through hospital and assist with reducing Delayed Transfers of Care.

In order to support this, we are recruiting a Trusted Assessors across Warwickshire. Following a period of inpatient care and following completion of a social care practitioner’s statutory assessment, the Trusted Assessors will work in close collaboration with multidisciplinary discharge teams and care home providers to complete an assessment of need on hospital patients.

- Liaise with homes, hospital social workers and hospital discharge teams;

The Trusted Assessors will be based (or will visit patients) at
- Warwick Hospital (South Warwickshire Foundation Trust)

The successful candidate will be familiar with developing new services and will be able to enhance the scheme over time, including demonstrating the benefits and encouraging other providers of residential and nursing care to utilise it.
