Are you looking for an opportunity to use your skills to enable people to achieve their potential?
If so, we have an opportunity within the Rapid Response and Intermediate Care (RRIC) team in Amersham for a Community Healthcare Assistant Practitioner
Our team is a busy place to work and you will be using your skills to support a caseload of patients with both acute and chronic conditions enabling them to maximise their independence.
The role has been developed to support the clinical case managers and you will be working alongside Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and Nurses as well as rehabilitation focused healthcare assistants.
You will carry your own caseload as well as supporting and reviewing people receiving services from the team.
The team provides specialist assessment and rehabilitation in order to facilitate timely discharges from hospital and prevent unnecessary hospital admissions.
We work with patients to empower and enable their recovery from illness or injury, maximise their independence and provide support to those at the end of life.
We pride ourselves on the high quality, compassionate care our team provides across the county.
The community teams work shift patterns 7 days a week across a 24 hour period (with a dedicated night team) ensuring the delivery of services which can respond to the patients’ needs as and when required.
The successful candidates will be expected to work shift patterns to cover the RRIC service hours which are between 8 am 9 pm with regular rostered weekend working.
This is a part time position working 24 hours per week.
Applicants must hold a valid driving licence and have access to a vehicle for work.
