Social Worker-Adults-Discharge Team

Location Knowsley
Salary £29.15 - £31.20 per hour
We are recruiting social workers with experience in a hospital setting to support completion of social care needs assessments to facilitate discharge out of acute ward setting's.
The Hospital Discharge Service Requirements recognised that discharge would require teamwork across many people and organisations and that funding and eligibility decisions could not delay discharge during this period. To that end the Government agreed that the NHS would fully fund the cost of new or extended out-of-hospital health and social care support packages, for a limited period, to enable quick and safe discharge and more generally reduce pressure on acute services.
In Knowsley, the Adult Social Care Hospital Discharge Team and the Adult Social Care Rapid Response Service has worked alongside colleagues from Knowsley Clinical Commissioning Group including Trusted Assessors deployed from the Continuing Health Care (CHC) Team, North West Boroughs Health Care Foundation Trust, in particular District Nursing and Community Therapy Services, and Acute Trusts to deliver a successful Discharge to Assess Service since March 2020.
