This post is only available to all permanent and temporary employees and agency workers currently on assignment within East Dunbartonshire Council.
An opportunity has arisen for Social Work Assistants within our Hospital Discharge Team.
The Hospital Discharge Team is a well-established and experienced team which is co-located within an integrated building providing the full range of adult social work and primary health services. However, the postholder will work in a variety of bases to undertake assessments and discharge planning for the Hospital Assessment Team.
The successful postholder will be responsible for providing a responsive service ensuring that patients are discharged timeously and delayed discharge is avoided. This is an exciting opportunity offering a diverse range of experience across varied aspects of hospital discharge social work practice.
An understanding and practical application of the Adult Support and Protection (Scotland) Act 2007 would be desirable.
Applicants will have experience of working within adult social work services.
You will need to hold a driving licence / pool car use.
Enquires relating to this post can be made to Lisa Miller, Team Manager, Hospital Assessment Team 0141 355 2200.
