  • Work collaboratively, efficiently and creatively with multi professional colleagues and partners with a focus on ‘HomeFirst’ helping patients to avoid hospital admissions and where they do need a hospital stay facilitating timely and well supported discharge back home.

In return we would love to offer you –

  • Regular, meaningful clinical and managerial supervision tailored to your specific needs.

  • Training and quality improvement opportunities.
