Wellbeing Support Officer / Assistants
£22,113 to £24,450 per annum
(depending on experience) + company pension scheme
Based in Hillingdon
H4All CIO are looking to recruit Wellbeing Support Officers and Wellbeing Support Assistants, who will deliver a range of health, wellbeing and social prescription services to adults in Hillingdon that need support to better manage long term health conditions, frailty, social isolation and to bring people into greater contact with their local community.
Wellbeing Support Assistants (WSA) – are an integral part of the new expanded Neighbourhood Care Connection Teams supporting 2% of the adult population most at risk of non-elective episodes/ admissions.
WSAs seek to appropriately reduce the number of emergency admissions to hospital, A&E visits, ambulance calls and unscheduled care interactions.
These roles are based in GP surgeries and referrals to this service can only be made through GP surgeries.
Wellbeing Support Officers (WSO) – aim to help the wider population that need support and offer client’s emotional support and the time they need to speak comfortably about any issues that are important to them and work with clients on practical solutions, linking them to appropriate support services to help improve their quality of life. These roles are field based and referrals are taken through our Single Point of Access.
The successful candidates for both roles will manage a caseload of clients through assessment, support planning, and onward-referral. They will aim to empower people to ‘Self Manage’ and find their own solutions to non-medical problems, support patients to remain at home and support the early identification of issues not previously recognised.
