The Discharge Liaison Team, based at Hull Royal Infirmary is looking to recruit a full time Band 6 Discharge Liaison Nurse. The Discharge Liaison Team consists of a small group of registered nurses who work closely with HEY colleagues and system partners to ensure discharge processes for complex patients are completed in a safe and timely manner. Although the team is based at HRI it also supports the wards in Castle Hill Hospital and therefore travel between sites is expected at times.

 If you are committed in ensuring patients are cared for in the right place, at the right time and have the experience and leadership skills necessary to lead and direct other team members    then the Discharge Liaison Team may be the team for you.

We are looking for a committed registered nurse who understands the discharge process, has a minimum of 2 years’ post qualification experience.  It would be an advantage to be familiar with  discharge processes as well as working with patients with complex needs. We need you to have exceptional communication skills and to be able to react quickly and positively to rapidly changing circumstances.

The Discharge Hub is open 7 days per week, including bank holidays and the successful applicant will be expected to be part of that rota.
