Remedy Recruitment Group are currently seeking an experienced Qualified Social Worker to work within a Hospital Discharge Team for Wandsworth Council.

Job Purpose

Richmond and Wandsworth Adult Social Services Department has strong values and a focus on improving outcomes to vulnerable adults and their carers. We are looking for an experienced registered Social Worker who share our values and commitment and are passionate about improving lives of local residents.

Wandsworth Adult Social Services have implemented a Discharge to Assess model in response to the government direction regarding hospital discharges in light of the COVID19 response. Wandsworth operate a Discharge to Assess service that integrates health (Maximising Independence community therapy) and three social care teams (two hospital discharge Social Work teams and the Enablement team). This team works collaboratively to ensure that hospital discharges are safe and timely and works towards having care confirmed within three hours of receiving the referral. The work also includes assessment of care and support needs, support planning and case management.

One part of the Discharge to Assess pathway is Urgent Care. Urgent Care consists of six step-down beds and four assessment at home care packages. The Assessment at Home scheme provides up to 24 hour care at home for Wandsworth residents for up to seven days. This scheme provides time for assessments to occur within the home setting thereby enabling residents to be settled and assessed in their own familiar environment.
