Learning Disability CHC Assessor/ Case Manager

Job Reference: 899-CCG-5491AS

NHS Southampton CCG
899 CHC Team - 6
£30,401 to £37,267 pro rata pa

Are you looking for a new role working in a dynamic, friendly, specialist team with the opportunity to make a real difference to the quality of care that the people we support receive?

In Southampton our Learning Disability Health and Social Care teams are integrating. You will work within the Integrated Learning Disability service, working in a team and across systems with a focus on maximising holistic outcomes for people with learning disabilities.

You will have a strong link and identity with Southampton’s Continuing Healthcare and CCG funded individualised care team. A team that continues to grow to enable us to meet the evolving and varied agenda of Continuing Healthcare, Personal Health Budgets and the closer integration of Health and Social Care. We offer a rich and wide ranging environment to develop your skills in a supportive team focused on the delivery of high quality, cost effective care and with the people we support at the heart of what we do. Alongside complex case management, assessments and reviews, you will have the opportunity to help shape our service as both local and national agenda’s evolve.

You will be a nurse, social worker or allied health professional with at least one year’s post qualification experience. However, If you have recently returned to practice or you are a mental health practitioner with case management experience, we will be very pleased to hear from you. We are looking for someone with excellent assessment skills and the ability to prioritise and manage a wide ranging caseload with minimal supervision (but as much support as you need). Knowledge and experience of both complex case management and Continuing Healthcare, whilst preferable, is not essential as full training and ongoing development will be provided.

For further information or an informal chat please contact either Vicky Thew or Lynda Collins on 02380 725550
