Are you a talented individual, ready to work within our CHC Hub? 

We will look to you to inform decision making and provide expertise regarding Continuing Health Care. Providing innovative and effective services to improve the lives of the individuals we work with. 

The team currently works across health and social care services based at Poole Civic Centre working across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole, maintaining our strong established partnerships, recognising both the challenges and benefits this can bring.

 The team works jointly with the Clinical Commissioning Group in completing Multi-disciplinary assessments to determine eligibility for CHC. The team also offers support to Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole’s community teams in completing the CHC process. A strong knowledge in Continuing Health Care is essential as you will be required to complete assessments for complex cases and with service users who have complex needs. 

In return, we can offer relevant training and professional development opportunities and a flexible, supportive team environment. 

If you are a, experienced social care practitioner and are passionately committed to providing excellent services in this field, we look forward to receiving your application.

As a result of the creation of BCP Council in 2019, we are working on simplifying our terms and conditions of service and will be creating a single pay structure which all of our employees will move on to. It is important to us that we offer benefits that our colleagues value as part of their total employment package and we are reviewing these to make sure we have it right. We’re hoping to implement these changes in October 2021 and all colleagues joining us will be included in these changes.
