Our Culture…Our People

At Priory Medical Group, we are a forward thinking, innovative and driven organization and we recognise the quality of our work is through the quality of our people.

The York Integrated Care Team was established to bring together primary and secondary care, social care and the voluntary sector to form a genuinely multidisciplinary team of different professions. The team reviews all hospital admissions and discharges daily, contacting people who need support and accessing support from a range of agencies. These services can ensure people stay in their own homes or return home as soon as it’s appropriate

What are the main duties of the role?

This role will make a real difference in enhancing the quality of case management, maximise person satisfaction and reduce avoidable admissions whilst facilitating discharge from hospital.

The successful candidate will be a key member of the MDT, reviewing recent hospital admissions and discharges that have been identified as at risk of further unplanned hospital admissions. The role includes defining, monitoring and evaluating actions taken to meet the person’s health and psychosocial needs.

A key role of the MDT is to identify the people who would benefit from the YICT service which offers the following:

  • Co-ordinate and provide care that is safe, timely, effective, efficient, equitable and client-centred
  • Manage and review caseload
  • Facilitate support as needed (case coordination, information sharing etc.)
  • Help make informed decisions by acting as their advocate regarding their clinical status and treatment options
  • Develop effective working relations and cooperate with health teams and liaise with social services, health and voluntary agencies
  • Promote quality and cost-effective interventions and outcomes
  • Maintain accurate and appropriate patient records on clinical systems

What we look for in your application

  • Registered with GMC and on the GP register
  • Ability to build positive rapport with a diverse range of internal colleagues and clients
  • Ability to work autonomously whilst also having an awareness of the scope of your role when identifying the need to access the wider clinical team appropriately and safely
  • Ability to function well and work flexibly within a wider clinical team

So are you in or are you out?

Working Hours: 2 hours per day Wednesday and/or Friday – timing of MDT can be flexible

Selection for Interview

The Practice recognises that discrimination of any kind is both unlawful and would act as a barrier to finding the most talented individuals for our organisation. As such, our recruitment and selection procedures exist to ensure no job applicant, employee or worker is discriminated against either directly or indirectly on the grounds of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy or maternity, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.

A great deal of careful consideration has been invested in preparing the advert for this post based on the specification for this role and the person we are looking for. Our selection for the interview process is designed to ensure individuals are selected for interview on the merit of their application only.

If you are applying through NHS Jobs, you will notice you are asked if you would like a guaranteed interview as part of the ‘Two Tick’ disability scheme. Whilst this is an admirable government initiative, please be aware we are not signed up to this scheme. This is a question on the NHS jobs application form which is outside of our own control. Our own process ensures we consider candidates on the merit of their application only and we do not ask any questions regarding disability as part of our selection process. We only give candidates the opportunity to share information regarding any disability after candidates are invited to interview and only if the candidate feels they require adjustments in the interview process.
