Are you looking for a new challenge and want to be a part of a team striving to make a difference in our community?
Warrington are on an exciting journey shaping the future of intermediate care services.
We are currently looking for a dynamic and enthusiastic Advanced Physiotherapist to join our Intermediate Tier Services. This is a fantastic opportunity to be a part of shaping integrated care working with partners to improve outcomes and experiences for the people of Warrington. We are looking for a values led, dynamic, outcomes driven and compassionate individual to join the service at a time of significant opportunity. We are well on our journey to delivering collaboration across Health and Social Care to improve outcomes for those living with frailty in Warrington.
Our intermediate care services are made up of a range of services including:
Rapid Response Services in addition to our well established Care Call services we are also one of seven nationally acclaimed accelerator sites for NHS England’s Aging Well programme, delivering a new urgent community response service to people experiencing a health or social care crisis. Our highly skilled team is made up of health and social care professionals and carers working together to support people at home or in the community and in doing so contributing the avoidance of a hospital admission or an admission to respite care.
Intermediate Care at Home Services where we provide a wide range of care, social work, rehabilitation, therapy, equipment and assistive technology services supporting people to live well and independently either at home or in the community. We take pride in our GOOD CQC registration for our care services and our re-ablement outcomes are strong with over 80% of people receiving our service remaining independent at home for three months after leaving our service.
Hospital Discharge Team and Intermediate Care Bed Bases where we support the safe and timely transfer from hospital into settings that best meet individual needs, providing care and rehabilitation to regain independence and undertake assessments for their long term needs.
More than ever the risks associated with a long stay in hospital particularly for our frail population are significant. The aim of Discharge to Assess (D2A) is to provide an effective, flexible, and responsive approach to discharge from hospital for individuals who’s clinical care is complete and require further assessment of their long term needs. The approach facilitates earlier return home from hospital where assessment for longer term needs takes a place and in doing so supports hospitals to care for patients with a right to reside. D2A ensures there is appropriate opportunity for ongoing assessment where required, care planning and long-term service provision allocation. The model provides a holistic multidisciplinary approach to:
Ensure a primary focus on ‘Home First’, with every part of the approach operating to get people safely back to their home and to keep people safely at home.
Leverage enhanced capacity of professionals working across hospital and community health, therapy, and social care, so that they are best placed to make coordinated decisions on meeting immediate needs and planning for on-going assessment and support.
Interface with pathways for patients who are not appropriate for ‘Home First’ and who instead may be transferred for transitional care in a care home.
Working as a member of a forward thinking, supportive and ‘can do’ team, as an individual you will have multi-disciplinary work experience, excellent interpersonal skills, able to work in genuine collaboration with others, a strong person centred value base and be able to deliver responsive care and rehabilitation that result in high quality outcomes for service users.
