Are you ready to become a key member of a dynamic new cross-Trust department, delivering a major initiative in adult community care?

This development is at the leading edge of healthcare delivery, exploiting the full potential of an integrated acute and community Trust and being part of King's Health Partners.

Exceptional clinicians/managers are now required to further develop and deliver this exciting and ground-breaking service - providing ‘hospital care at home’. Building on our first year of operation. The @home Service:

• will increase the capacity for admission avoidance, through the skill and responsiveness of its nurse-led multi-disciplinary team;
• support early discharge from hospital augmenting secondary care;
• works in conjunction with GPs, Community Matrons, District Nurses, Rapid Response therapists , Social Care, Guy's and St Thomas' and King's College Hospitals Acute services;
• responding to clinical needs of people living in the community and help reduce the risk of hospital readmission.

GSTT @home has 2 community bases and ’in-reach’ into our acute hospitals, practice development and a central referral and administrative ‘hub’. We serve communities across Lambeth and Southwark, providing first class acute care at home and collaborate with other admission avoidance and advanced discharge programmes. This service contributes to our Trust programme which is transforming community services for the future, and ensures that highly skilled nursing and strong interdisciplinary working is at the forefront of that development.

Either experienced in leading and developing complex patient services, or ready to make your mark by building on your clinical, organisational and management potential, you will be able to turn our vision of supporting patients where they most want to be – at home - into action.
You will have clinical credibility at a senior level and be determined to put patients first, whilst leading and developing a multi-disciplinary team which can help transform health care in our community.
