‘Care for others. Make a difference’


As a Hospital Liaison Practitioner, you will undertake assessments and establish reablement goals for people who are due to be discharged from hospital. Working as part of a multi-disciplinary team, you will identify and facilitate discharge via the most appropriate route.


The role is currently working remotely with an office base of Reed House, Norwich. Due to a large-scale transformation happening within the service and the Health and Social Care system, the role may move to a community setting and staff may be expected to carry out assessments for service users in their own homes.


Norfolk First Support delivers services to adults in Norfolk in their own homes for up to 6 weeks, assisting them to regain skills they may have lost following an illness or hospital admission. The aim is to enable them to regain their independence as much as possible while also reviewing their ongoing care needs.


Norfolk First Support is part of the wider Norfolk First Response Service which consists of Swift Response, which supports people with unplanned care needs, Supported Care and Accommodation-Based Reablement units.


Benefits of working for Norfolk First Response: Competitive annual leave per year, competitive pension scheme, guaranteed salaried hours, regular working pattern, paid induction and Norfolk Rewards Scheme.
