Are you looking for a new challenge? Are you dynamic, enthusiastic and wanting to make a difference? Do you want to save the NHS money? Can you unblock hospital beds? Can you make a difference to someone's quality of life? Can you help patients be where they want to be?

Currently, acute hospitals with Cambridgeshire and Peterborough are being prevented from performing their vital functions because their beds are filled by almost well people who are not able to return to their own homes – however with CPFT Discharge To Assess Intermediate Care they can.

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough has a vision for the future of health & social care in the County. Our joint plan to keep Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Fit for the Future has been developed by health and social care partners and sets out how we will redesign services to deliver the NHS England 5 Year Forward View.

We are excited to announce an expansion of our existing Discharge To Assess Intermediate Care Team. We are recruiting for assistant care- co-ordinators to support care provision in our teams across Cambridge and Peterborough, being based in either the north or the south of the county; working from home is also an option. 

The various bases are; Sackville House in Cambourne / Princess of Wales in Ely or Commerce Road in Peterborough / Hinchingbrooke Hospital in Huntingdon.

The vision of the service is to provide outstanding, patient focused, community based health care and therapy, optimising peoples potential to achieve their goals by supporting earlier discharge from hospital; early assessment for care needs and avoidance of hospital admission.

We will provide the necessary support to ensure your development within your role. We are keen to support and develop our staff through a clear career pathway and encourage promotional opportunities within the Trust.
