job description

About us

There is an opening to join the Hospital Responsive Services social work team in Brighton and Hove, a lively and interesting city to live and work in.

While we have been at the forefront of developments with the hospital’s Discharge to Assess model, both the acute and community branches of our wider team have seen their duties drastically change in recent years. This has required the team to deal with patients in both acute settings and community settings after they have spent some time in the hospital. This could happen in the patient’s home or in a hospital bed while they are receiving rehabilitation. In addition, we collaborate with our medical colleagues in the Emergency Department to serve as a presence at the hospital’s entrance for individuals who require assistance to avoid being admitted.

We are a welcoming and helpful group of people who work in a busy setting. Despite the pressure, we uphold high professional standards of practice and are dedicated to ongoing professional development. The successful candidate will be based on the community side of our team, but they may be required to work across all settings in accordance with the shifting requirements of the system to facilitate safe and prompt discharge from our service.

Date of interview: April 3, 2023.

Please get in touch with Jane Higgins, operations manager, at mobile: 07548 148047, for a casual talk.
