Care Coordinator

Personalised Care Team

2 year fixed term or secondment opportunity (secondment should be agreed with existing line manager prior to applying)

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join our expanding personalised care team. Personalised Care gives people the same choice and control over their mental and physical health they have come to expect in every other aspect of their life. Personalised Care is a key element of the NHS long term plan. It helps a range of people, from those with long term illness and complex needs through to people managing mental health issues or struggling with social issues which affect their health and wellbeing. It helps them make decisions about managing their health so they can live the life they want to live based on what matters to them, working alongside clinical information from the professionals who support them.

You will be working within the personalised care team for the Valleys Primary Network (PCN). The Valleys PCN covers the semi-rural populations across the Holme and Colne Valley and has six member practices, who work together to improve the healthcare of the local population together with local partners within the NHS, local authority and voluntary sector.

The role of a Care Coordinator is to provide a joined up and coordinated care journey for patients and act as a single point of contact to help patients navigate the health and care system.   

You will work with the Valley’s PCN to identify and support their most vulnerable patients including those who are frail, elderly and/or vulnerable.  You will be required to build trusting relationships and provide personalised support to ensure that people have their care needs met. 

As a Care Coordinator you will be required to work with the wider personalised care team including Social Prescribing Link Workers and Health and Wellbeing Coaches to support people to live well and independently. 

The role will involve:

  • Carrying out home visits
  • Bringing together a person’s identified care and support needs
  • Pro-actively identify and work with a team of people to support people’s personalised care requirements
  • Plan and lead MDT meetings
