In line with the Trust’s commitment to timely discharge we are currently recruiting a full-time Enhanced Recovery Lead/ Discharge Co-ordinator to be based on MAU.

Enhanced Recovery in acute medicine is a new approach to caring for patients admitted as a medical emergency. The approach involves patient and their families/carers in decision about their care to ensure our patients leave hospital safely, at the right time and with thorough communication with the wider multi-disciplinary team. The key to enhanced recovery in acute medicine is that patients are partners in their own care.

The key areas of responsibility will be to support the patients’ journey through their hospital stay to ensure a smooth transition from admission to discharge home or to alternative agreed placement. Gaining appropriate information regarding the patients’ needs from patients, families and other Healthcare Professionals at the point of admission.
