The role of the RAS team is to support clinicians and other professionals working within Oxfordshire Adult Mental Health Service to understand and meet the needs of people with a learning disability and autistic people on their caseload, guiding them on person centred reasonable adjustments to enable access to Mental Health Community and / or Inpatient Pathways.

By working in this way, we aim to avoid inappropriate or avoidable admissions and safely reduce length of stay and delayed discharges for people.

However, some admissions are unavoidable and this role is to support with finding appropriate and high quality assessment and treatment beds for this vulnerable client group. This is part of our mission to ensure that no Oxfordshire patient should be placed in a substandard provision. This role will also be pivotal in ensuring that providers are held to account in relation to meeting treatment aims and that no Oxfordshire patient with a learning disability and / or autism will be subject to hospital treatment for any longer than absolutely required.

Within this role you will be working closely with the clinical team to prepare for admissions and discharges and also as appropriate the clients family and support network.

This is a brilliant opportunity for any clinician wishing to develop skills within commissioning and whilst this is 12 month fixed term contract we are also accepting requests for secondment if already employed by Oxford Health NHS FT.
