Jean Bishop Frailty Community Services (JB-CFS) have been operational since May 2018, and in that time provided innovative, anticipatory patient tailored care to frail residents of Hull and the surrounding areas, including those residing in care homes. More recently we have operationalised a urgent community response and Virtual Ward service, supporting acutely unwell frail patients remaining in their preferred place of care ensuring right care, right time.

The Centre has already been recognized for national awards and continues to receive outstanding patient feedback. The JB-CFS also featured on NHS England's website dedicated to the NHS Long Term Plan as the leading case study in the Ageing Well section. More recently, the team featured on a Panorama programme which assessed the innovative and new ways of working delivered by our team, evidence to support not only our frail population but also the demands placed on the NHS.

The team working at the JB-CFS feel privilege to be a part of delivering transformed care for older people in Hull.

In this role you will be working in providing urgent medical care to frail patients acutely unwell in their usual residence, including care homes.
