Job Description
An exciting opportunity has arisen to join an established Social Care team in the Emergency Department at Whiston Hospital. We are an enthusiastic multi-disciplinary team with the primary aim of ensuring a safe and timely discharge of patients across a number of local authorities.

You would be expected to work on a rolling 7 day rota including evenings, weekends and bank holidays.

During the pandemic, team members are not currently based at the A&E Department and are working remotely from an office on site.

This Authority is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of its clients and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
