An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Senior Practitioner Occupational Therapist to be part of a 5 month pilot of the social care component of the Neighbourhoods Programme.
What are Neighbourhoods?
Eight neighbourhood areas have been created in City and Hackney Neighbourhoods formed as far as possible around natural communities based on GP registered lists. These neighbourhood areas serve populations of between 30,000 to 50,000 residents.
At the core of a neighbourhood will be a community-centred, integrated team, working across healthcare, social care, public services, community groups and voluntary agencies and the people it serves. In essence these are multi-disciplinary front-line teams delivering integrated patient-centred pathways. It is intended that by working together, staff across different disciplines can communicate regularly, share knowledge and expertise and co-ordinate care planning and delivery.
Working in this way also allows teams to localise the planning, coordination and delivery of care for the whole local population.
Recent safeguarding adult reviews have shown a common theme relating to the need to improve "interagency working and communication". One of the principle aims for the development of neighbourhoods is to deliver joined up care for people, especially those who are vulnerable or have complex needs by joint working across health, social, community, voluntary and wider public sector organisations. The Neighbourhoods Programme is working with a wide range of partners across the Borough these include;
Adult Social Care
Community Navigation Partners
City of London
