Job description

We are looking for an enthusiastic professional who can help the Community Independence Service (CIS) make Hammersmith & Fulham (H&F) a great place to grow old.

Join us and be part of a committed and caring team as we deliver high quality patient care. You will work alongside our dynamic in-house team of therapists, health care assistants and co-ordinators plus our colleagues in Rapid Response, Reablement and Social Care to deliver Pathway 1 discharges in the home first/discharge to assess pathway. The Community Independence Service is co-located with London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham (LBHF) Adult Social Care on King St, Hammersmith as well as within Charing Cross Hospital. Our service works closely with our acute partners, mainly Charing Cross but also other acute Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust sites and Chelsea & Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. You will be connected with peers across the tri-borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, Westminster and Kensington and Chelsea to support you and to work on service improvement partnerships.

Your role as a Health Care Assistant within the CIS Home First Team will involve providing a rapid response care service for people who need urgent help with primary acute physical health illness in their own homes, often immediately after a hospital admission. Please note that this role is not an inpatient ward based or mental health service, and the vast majority of our patients need support with functional activities.

As a Health Care Assistant you will be expected to provide support to our patients in a wide range of community and patient home environments, working autonomously and collaboratively in supporting the integrated multidisciplinary team in the delivery of excellent patient care. You will be responsible for the holistic, comprehensive care of complex community patients, delivering clinical care delegated by a registered professional and contributing to the evaluation of person centred care plans.

You will have excellent communication skills, IT skills, and the ability to be adaptable, flexible and reliable as changes to your caseload and patient visits may happen on a daily basis. You will therefore require good organisation skills and the ability to prioritise your workload effectively. Experience of care in a community setting would be an advantage but is not essential.

West London NHS Trust is one of the most diverse providers of mental and physical health, community and social care in the UK.

Our 3,982 staff care for people in hospital and in the community, helping them to recover and go on to lead full and productive lives. We aim to be the best organisation of our kind in the country.

We provide care and treatment for more than 800,000 people living in the London boroughs of Ealing, Hammersmith & Fulham and Hounslow, delivering services in the community (at home, in GP surgeries and care homes), hospital, specialist clinics and forensic (secure) units.

We are rated good overall by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Together, we’re committed to promoting hope and wellbeing, working with patients, service users, carers, families and partners across the communities we serve.

We are keen to ensure that our workforce reflects the community it serves, particularly in terms of ethnicity, gender, disability, LGBTQ+ and experience of mental illness.

Covid-19 vaccination is a condition of employment for this role, unless an exemption applies. The successful applicant may have contact with vulnerable service users and we will therefore seek proof of being fully vaccinated during the recruitment process.
