Early Response Worker
Fixed term contract until March 2022, with possibility of extension
We are looking for a creative, talented and hardworking individual to join our Link Back Service which supports discharge at University Hospitals Sussex (UHS) by helping older and disabled patients access the support they need to facilitate a safe discharge home and their ongoing independence, health and wellbeing.
Working within our existing Early Response team you will support eligible patients to access Brighton and Hove City Council’s Hospital Discharge Grant (HDG). The HDG provides financial assistance to carry out housing interventions and provision that will avoid delayed transfers of care and help avoid unnecessary readmission to hospital.

Salary: £25,481.00 per annum

Interviews: 25 and 26 May 2021 (via Zoom)
Volunteer Opportunities also exist in various areas in the organisation. It would be great to hear from you.
