You will work as part of a multi-disciplinary team which includes Social Care and Warwickshire County Council, in conjunction with George Eliot Hospital Discharge Team to ensure patients have a seamless journey back into the community setting.

The post involves working across both the acute and community settings.

Applications are invited from those with a minimum of 2 years’ experience at band 5. Knowledge of discharge pathways would be an advantage.
