We have recently set up a frailty pathway at King’s College Denmark Hill that involves identification of frail patients who present at our emergency department and rapid transfer to a frailty assessment unit for comprehensive multi-disciplinary team assessment.  We are looking for enthusiastic and dynamic practitioners who will support this process specifically within the emergency department. This would suit an experienced nurse or allied health professional who is able to provide comprehensive geriatric assessment and make decisions and plans for ongoing management.  A positive approach and understanding of management of older people living with frailty are essential qualities for these positions.

The post holders will be part of a larger team including consultant geriatricians, nurses, therapists, doctors and social workers and the post holders will work closely with the team in the emergency department as well as the frailty assessment unit. The practitioners will be supported in their role by AHP / nurse consultants within the team.

Part time post available.
