Transforming Care Senior Case Manager (learning disability and autism)
Two full time posts
Salary: Band 7
An exciting opportunity has arisen for two Transforming Care Senior Case Managers to join the Nursing and Quality Directorate, within a newly developed team.
Transforming Care is a national programme which aims to improve the lives of children, young people and adults with a learning disability and/or autism who display behaviours that challenge, including those with a mental health condition.
These are all-age posts and will work as part of the integrated Transforming Care Team working across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.
These posts will involve undertaking placement reviews, CPA reviews and MHA Section 117 meetings. You will oversee the effective case management of individual placements for adults and children who require specialist inpatient mental health or learning disability services/placements.
You will be required to establish and maintain effective links and good communication with all specialist mental health and learning disability service providers (NHS and independent sector).
You will need to ensure patients in specialist mental health/learning disability services receive high quality and clinically appropriate treatment and that this is in accordance with identified individual care pathways and in the least restrictive setting.
You will lead on the commissioning of individual packages of care in the community and monitoring of assurance outcomes, working to ensure individuals are safe and packages of care meet their needs.
Your role will also involve supporting risk of admission processes in order to avoid inappropriate hospital admissions and keep people safe in the community, where appropriate.
You will need to work in an agile way to visit individuals in their places of care and system partners, so an ability and willingness to travel is essential.
If you have a proven track record of supporting individual commissioning and are passionate about improving outcomes for people with learning disability and Autism we would like to hear from you.
Interview dates to be confirmed.
You must have appropriate UK professional registration.
