Safeguarding is at the very heart of our innovative practice and professional accountability. You will deliver high quality risk and needs assessments. Your intervention skills and support will enable our vulnerable residents, their carers and families to maximise their choices, control and independence. If you share this vision of excellent integrated discharge practice, we want to hear from you.
