The Alliance Board – a joint initiative with the Health and Care Trust to co-direct planned care services – is moving on from the recruitment process, now underway, for the new £5 per head posts. We are now establishing how the board will work to co-ordinate, monitor and manage the wider planned care teams across the patch. For instance, the board is currently redesigning the community nursing teams’ structure in Droitwich and Ombersley with all the local practices.
Considering the general difficulty in recruiting these types of staff we have attracted some great candidates and the level of appointment is high. Repeat recruitment is already commencing where posts could not be filled. the new teams have attracted a lot of interest and encouraged experienced professionals into the patch.
