Our diverse Adult care teams see almost 48,000 patients each year, making more than 450,000 patient contacts. Over a four-year period, they’ve helped to prevent 23,022 adult admissions to hospital.
Our teams aim to deliver a patient-centric and holistic approach to healthcare, are supported by great clinical structures such as patient safety and safeguarding, and get to work as part of multidisciplinary teams making a collective contribution to the community.
It’s a varied and broad area which offers lots of scope for career development and progression, whether lateral or up the ladder.
Community Learning Disabilities Team
The team here work together to provide specialist and direct health services to people with learning disabilities, including day centres, workplaces, clinics and therapy groups. A centre of expertise that works closely with GPs, the team also trains and supports other service providers.
The nursing team providing healthcare and support to housebound patients across our communities is the largest of all our teams. Our almost 300 matrons, nurses and administrative staff actively help patients to understand and manage their health, working in partnership with local healthcare professionals to improve health and independence. This is where you can build rewarding and genuine relationships with your patients.
Our Physiotherapists, Podiatrists, Paramedics, Psychologists, Occupational Therapists and Speech & Language Therapists, among others, work at the heart of and across all services as one team with their clinical and non-clinical colleagues to provide a complete service. We are truly multi-disciplinary and so have everything in place to support your professional development.
Over the last 12 months, our Rapid Response Teams and our Rapid Assessment Emergency Care Team (REACT) together have prevented 3,000 hospital admissions. Taking care to where patients are, they work collaboratively with NHS emergency departments. There are opportunities for Nurses, Advanced Nurse Practitioners, Mental Health Nurses, Occupational Therapists, Pharmacists, Physiotherapists, Rehabilitation Workers, Social Workers, Speech and Language Therapists and Support Workers.
