We are seeking a dynamic and driven leader who can work collaboratively with key partners across health and social care to develop and improve discharge to assess pathways and prevent unnecessary delays in hospital. We want you to lead the improvement of outcomes for patients, ensure system flow and capacity and reduce cost pressures across the system.
This is a new and high profile role taking the Social Care lead across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough within 3 acute hospitals. You will lead improvements to the discharge planning system and encourage the development of proactive planning for discharge for both Council's; including supporting further development of the Single Point of Access (SPA) in each of the acute hospitals.
You will be joining the Adults and Safeguarding Senior Management Team at the start of an exciting period of transformation. You will be fully involved in the development of a number of workstreams to enable us to manage the future challenges of demand, capacity and capability.
As the Head of Transfers of Care you will identify themes, pathway gaps and resource needs to support investment in an extended range of services to prevent delays occurring, including a number of Discharge to Assess Pathways. You will lead the implementation and embedding of the Discharge to Assess Pathways (as outlined in the Sustainability and Transformation Plan);

You will support a whole system approach to discharge through improved multi-agency coordination, better use of intelligence and more effective early intervention.
To be considered for this position you will have experience of managing discharge planning effectively over a significant period of time, demonstrating effective partnership working to deliver outcomes for multiple organisations.
