Urgent Care Service

Guaranteed Hours – day work

We are looking for a special person who wants to make a difference to the lives of unpaid Carers and the people they care for. The aim of our Urgent Care service is to support families in crisis situations, avoid unnecessary hospital admissions, increase quicker discharges from hospital, reduce unnecessary prolonged stays for people and allowing them to recover in the comfort of their own home, as well as freeing up hospital beds. The service will also provide support for people returning home from hospital towards the end of their lives.

As part of our experienced Urgent Care Team you must be confident and capable of working alone and able to deal with challenges.

An NVQ Level 3 or equivalent is preferred but not essential to start with as training will be provided.
