Job Details

An exciting opportunity has arisen within the Urgent Community Response Directorate to recruit two Community Case Managers within the Virtual Ward Team.

We are seeking to appoint a dynamic, driven, motivated and caring individual who will bring their experience and personability to the role to ensure that as a team we align to the Trusts People, Patient, Population Strategy.

Our current Virtual Ward Team consists of a range of multidisciplinary colleagues including:

Consultants

ACPs

Occupational Therapists

Physiotherapists

Community Matrons

Assistant Practitioners

Rehab Support Workers

Operational Managers

We currently have 6 Virtual Wards within the organisation including our award-winning Hospital at Home Service (EpiCentre) lead in collaboration with our Acute Medicine colleagues. Working with the team, you will support across 4 of the Virtual Wards as detailed below:

Respiratory

Frailty

EpiCentre

Cardiology

Our new Midland Metropolitan University Hospital opens October 2024, and will not only provide excellent patient care from a modern acute setting but will look to support the wider communities by supporting with education access with the development of the Learning Academy which is set to be opened at MMUH.

Please be aware that our base location may change following the opening of MMUH, but this will be discussed further at Interview.

Main duties of the job

Reporting to a senior Community Matron for the service, the post holder will be an autonomous practitioner and clinical specialist responsible for developing and implementing service provision within the team across the borough of Sandwell.

The post holder will have continuing responsibility for proactively monitoring and managing patients on a caseload within a designated pathway, recognising the early symptoms of disease exacerbation, acute illness, and injuries, as well as social and familial factors based on the understanding of long-term conditions, the effects on the individual, their family and environment as well as current evidence and practice standards.

The service will be delivered to a defined population of patients needing complex case management for long term conditions and complex social risk factors within the community setting, preventing inappropriate hospital admission.

The post holder will also be ultimately responsible for the management/decision making about care and service provision, for individual patient pathways across the primary and secondary care interface.
