We have an exciting opportunity to join the Complex Hospital Team at Ipswich Hospital to support people with safe and effective discharge planning. We are looking for an enthusiastic person with a positive attitude.

We offer a supportive team and a chance to work as part of a busy integrated team with other health professionals.

You will:

  • play a key part in promoting personalisation, independence, wellbeing and choice by providing a social care service for people
  • exercise a high level of professional judgement and risk evaluation, taking responsibility for the safety and well-being of people accessing adult and community services within a health environment
  • complete asset-based assessments / reviews, short term reablement plans, care and support plans and safeguarding plans in line with Supporting Lives, Connecting Communities and using a Signs of Safety and Solution Focused approach.

This post will include a rota of once a month Saturday working.

This organisation positively encourages the use of technology to communicate and engage, but in this role you will need to operate across a wide and rural area, so you must either hold a full and current driving licence and have access to personal transport or meet the mobility requirements of the role through other reasonable and suitable means.

For an informal discussion only, please contact Anna Mclean on (01473) 703540 or email: anna.mclean@suffolk.gov.uk
