Focused Care Practitioner

Job Reference: J273-A-19-0229

Hope Citadel Healthcare
Oldham, Stockport, Manchester
£25-35k pro rata

Focused Care is a model which has been bourne out of a response that in primary care many people come with problems and issues that cannot be solved in 10 minutes with a GP.

Often problems manifest themselves in medical ways and solving the problems behind the problems brings significant change. In primary care the most vulnerable are often the most invisible to the system, Focused Care aims to turn this round and reverse the inverse care law so that the most vulnerable become the most visible. Over the past 9 years the model has grown in size and reputation to 7 Boroughs across Greater Manchester and this next intake is primarily due to successful recommissioning in Oldham. 

You will need to have a background in a relevant health or social field, be it a nurse, health visitor, social worker, probation worker, youth worker background. The qualification is less important than demonstrating experience in face-to-face working, desire and ability to work autonomously, safely, and with a huge passion to bring change and social justice.

Focused Care CIC is currently looking to expand it's footprint with several new positions for Focused Care Practitioners in Oldham (30 or 15 hours), and to fill one vacancy for a Focused Care Practioner in Stockport (30 hours) and one in Gorton, Manchester (15 hours). Own car essential, mileage paid, and subject to 2 clear references and DBS check. 35 days annual leave (including bank holidays), 2 weeks CSP. 

Please respond by filling in the application form and attach a CV stating preferred location of work by 12pm Friday 27th September 2019. Interviews to be carried out Thursday 3rd /Friday 4th October, Induction week / start date Monday 4th November 2019.
