Intermediate Care bed based units for KMBC are situated in St Barts and Appleby Nursing Home. A senior practitioner is required to oversee social workers within the Intermediate care team and provide support around care management, supervisions, attendance at MDT etc.

The Social workers role within Intermediate care is to facilitate discharges from the Intermediate Care setting following a Social Care Needs Assessment.
