Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust provides specialist inpatient and community mental health, learning disabilities, addiction and acquired brain injury services for the people of Liverpool, Sefton and Kirkby, Merseyside. We also provide community physical health services in Liverpool, Sefton, secure mental health services for the North West of England, the West Midlands and Wales and specialist learning disability services across Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Cheshire and Merseyside.

We work closely with service users, carers and partner organisations; we have been able to make real improvements to our diverse range of services, from health and social care, right through to high secure provision. This passion to improve has been recognised by the CQC who have recently rated us “Good”.

Mersey Care’s vision and values of Continuous Improvement, Accountability, Respect, Enthusiasm and Support (CARES) drive our organisation and the way we work together to deliver services. Applicants will be expected to demonstrate, during recruitment and any subsequent employment with the Trust, that their behaviour supports our values.

The CQC stated “It was clear that most staff across the organisation understood, and were committed to, the vision and values of the organisation. These were well communicated and the work to win both hearts and minds was apparent”.

We take positive action to support disadvantaged groups and also particularly encourage applications from BAME, disabled and LGBT people that are under-represented in our workforce. Furthermore we welcome applications from reservists and ex-armed forces as we recognise the benefits of the values, skills, training and experience that they bring to their work with us. We encourage all applicants to share their equality information with us.

Flexible working requests will be considered for all roles.

If you are an enthusiastic Registered Nurse, Social Worker or Allied Health Professional who is committed to the integration of seamless physical and mental health services then this may be the exciting opportunity you are looking for. We are recruiting an Integrated Care Coordinator to work within Central Liverpool neighbourhood on a one year fixed term secondment to cover maternity leave

You will be integral to the operational function and care delivery to patients/service users who will access services within the Trust and wider system. You will work as part of a dynamic multi-agency integrated team assessing referrals regarding integrated care requirements for patients and you will have the ability to operate within complex health and social care system, across Health and Social Care and third sector.

This is a truly innovative role that will see you working across the health and social care economy to build networks and enhance pathways to deliver measurable and sustainable improvements to the coordination and delivery of care within our neighbourhoods.

Partnership working and the ability to develop and maintain highly effective professional relationships is vital to the role. Engagement with all stakeholders, and the coordination with health professionals outside of core/specialist services, is fundamental to ensure that patient centred MDT working is developed and consistently achieved.

**Please ensure that you have the support of your manager to apply for this secondment
