CATALYST FOR CARE (CLINICAL LEAD – COMMUNITY SERVICES)… Extending the Reach & Expanding the Envelope!

Nr. Bath     -     c£53K

“Specialist Palliative Care & End of Life Support” Support”

Time, place, momentum, resource, integrity, appetite…all harnessing pedigree, reputation and legacy.  After 40 years of delivering exceptional Care, Dorothy House is still very much evolving. Awarded “outstanding” by CQC as well as being cited in their State of Hospice Services as an exemplar in hospice care, they have developed their new long term strategy. 

It’s about modern, inclusive, integrated solutions provision…proactively investing in patient and family services, harnessing and leveraging relationships with strategic partners and stakeholders, extending reach/expanding the envelope, to meaningfully access more people, with more care – more often.

At the heart of this is a new Clinical/Lead role for Community Services, to drive an integrated, multi-disciplinary provision to form a joined-up envelope across Bath and the surrounding area’s complex landscape of client/user-need and diverse partners and stakeholders.  The Role is to be a catalyst for both operational fulfilment and community outreach, optimising the spread and utilisation of resources, service types (nurse visits & clinics) whilst balancing the physical and psychological needs of both patient and families within the budgeting constraints of fund holders.  

This requires a mix of both strong clinical and social awareness plus a driving dynamic to deliver, through a team of committed professionals and volunteers, an evolving, “moving feast”, of a portfolio across the different constituencies…to time, cost and quality.    Descriptors like empower, self-starter, inclusive/collaborative, incisive/decisive, resourcefulness and engaging are accurate metaphors. Literally extending the reach and expanding the envelope, a catalyst for care.  A tough call, but a great job!
