Full Vacancy details can be found on the attached Job Descriptions/Person Specification. Please refer to your suitability to the post in your supporting information from the role requirements or person specification .

Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust (CWPT) has taken the decision to no longer continue to provide Adult Physical Community Services, as there are more suitable providers within the wider NHS local system.

Following a review of suitable providers to take forward the contract, the Coventry and Warwickshire Integrated Care Board (ICB) has confirmed its intention to award the contract for the provision of Adult Physical Community Services to University Hospitals Coventry & Warwickshire NHS Trust (UHCW). This change is anticipated to take effect from 1st July 2024.

Your application to work in Adult Physical Community Services will not be adversely impacted by the change in provider. Should you commence employment prior to the transfer, your contract of employment (that is your terms and conditions of service as at the point of transfer) will automatically transfer to the new organisation, under the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (TUPE) as amended by the Collective Redundancies and Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) (Amendment) Regulations 2014.

Should you commence employment after the transfer, your contract of employment will be issued by the new provider of Adult Physical Community Services.
