In Adult Social Care, we want every person in Central Bedfordshire to have responsive, customer-focused care and support – making this a great place to live and work. As a Hospital Social Worker, you’ll be at the heart of our Better Care Fund developments whilst supporting our residents to leave hospital safely. Join us and find your greatness in supporting vulnerable people to be safe, well and as independent as possible.

Integrated Services operates 11 locality based teams that provide Assessment and Case Management across all client groups. We are committed in supporting our customers to leave acute hospital settings with timely and safe integrated discharge planning. Central Bedfordshire has created a number of positions based across the locality to work with our customers when admitted to the multiple hospitals that serve our Council area.

The service works in close partnership with other health and care systems and is currently reviewing the customer pathway to enhance experience and deliver good outcomes. Working for us, you can expect to be valued for your positive and dynamic practice, be assisted to continue to develop as a practitioner within a supportive learning environment and operate within a ‘can do’ culture. Your contribution in helping us to succeed could enable you to discover your greatness.

You will have significant Health and/or Social Care experience, including multi disciplinary and inter agency working. Your ability to transfer your skills will help us achieve our goal in the delivery of excellent person centred approaches. You will value the impact of sound evidence based practice and understand that best practice results in best value. You will know the
importance of enabling people to be supported to be as independent as possible for as long as possible and that having a strong connection with their local communities can make a real difference to people’s lives and overall wellbeing. 

If you have a social care qualification and are passionate about working in and alongside acute hospital trusts and want to be part of a team delivering a responsive, flexible and resilient service underpinned by a caring, compassionate and confident operating culture, then we want to hear from you.
