We have an exciting opportunity for you to join a new team as we open an intermediate care facility in Morecambe.
Working in partnership with colleagues from Lancashire County Council and University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay we plan to open a 20-22 bedded unit to support patients on their rehabilitation pathway. 8 of those beds will be clinically enhanced and require 24/7 Registered Nurse Support. Staff are required to cover three shift patterns, including night duty
The unit will accept patients who step up from the community and step down from the hospital. The staff will be a multidisciplinary team and work to support patient flow across the health economy.
