Dementia Rapid Response Recruitment Event

Thursday 30 November 2017

The Whitworth Centre, Dale Rd N, Darley Dale, Matlock DE4 2EQ

 **For info - this event is only open to individuals currently affected by the BCCTH programme including OPMH Teams**

The Dementia Rapid Response Team will be a Community based service that can deliver a rapid response with expert and intensive at home support for a short period of time and provide a real alternative to hospital admissions as well as supporting faster discharges and reducing length of stay from specialist OPMH beds.

The DRRT will be run by Derbyshire Healthcare FT and provide multi-disciplinary assessment, care and treatment in a person’s home.

The service will require a variety of roles including Health Care Assistants, Registered Nurses, Manager, Clinical Leads, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists and Administrators. Roles identified for phase one of the DRRT programme will go live that day for staff to apply for until they close on Sunday 17 December 2017.

Anyone who is interested in joining the DRRT will be able to find out more from Derbyshire Healthcare FT about the roles and how you can apply. A presentation will be held at 10am and repeated at 2pm along with various stalls set up throughout the day to help with queries on roles, job applications, TRAC system registration and interview support. Please feel free to drop in at any point during the day and take advantage of one of the presentations and general discussions taking place.
