Job Description

Our client is an independent, local charity supporting older people to remain connected within the community. They offer a range of different services designed with the views and preferences of their service users in mind; from befriending, to practical help and homecare, to intergenerational IT coaching. They are now recruiting for a number of Primary Care Coordinators as part of a multi-agency initiative, delivering specialist, person-centered support to older people in GP surgeries across Kensington and Chelsea.

As a Primary Care Coordinator, you will support the health and social care needs of older people, collaborating with a variety of professionals from health, social care and the voluntary sector to deliver tailored, holistic support. You will work closely alongside the patient's family members and carers, as directed by the patient and clinical professionals, and will share up to date accurate information about their care and outcomes, signposting and directing patients appropriately. You will undertake regular training and professional development in order to deliver clinical duties and perform specific social care functions, and will participate in relevant clinical and community-based working groups to provide information and advice to strategic leads.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a multi-agency initiative, changing the way that primary care is delivered in West London. To apply, you must have previous experience of working in partnership with patients and their families along with clinical and community support agencies, and of delivering tailored, person-centered support. You must have excellent communication skills, with the ability to communicate with a wide variety of stakeholders including clinicians. Overall, you will be proactive and positive, truly passionate about delivering person-centered care to vulnerable people.
