Facilitated Discharge (P1) and Urgent Care Response (UCR)

We are a team of Nurses, Paramedics, Advanced Clinical Practitioners (ACPs), Therapists, Support Workers and Community Navigators who work together to facilitate early discharge from hospital into the community and help prevent avoidable acute hospital admissions.

Working in this way means supporting service users who are acutely unwell and may need creative solutions to keep them safely in their own homes or ensure a successful discharge from acute hospital trusts. This offers a varied and fulfilling role - and many find this very rewarding.

Our Community Navigators support the Senior Therapists and ACPs (specialising in Urgent Care) to manage a rapidly changing caseload. Colleagues who work in this area do not need clinical qualifications but some experience working in healthcare would be an advantage.

Our team of Nurses and Therapists also support The Rapid Emergency Assessment Care Team (REACT) which is based in the Emergency Department at the Bristol Royal Infirmary.

If you are highly organised and can adapt quickly to changing circumstances under pressure, we'd love to hear more about you! Join us and we’ll be there to help you to achieve your full potential and develop the skills you need to grow your career!

What is it like to live and work here?

We love South Bristol, in the South West of England, because is one of the most diverse areas of Bristol and it has great contrasts.

Whether it’s the bright and vibrant landscapes or the wonderful sense of community, the South of the city boasts the best of both worlds between urban and suburbia.

From Totterdown’s colourful skyline, to Bedminster’s abundance of lively street art, there are plenty of things to see and do – even on the rainy days! Why not take a trip to the local markets or visit the community orchards – or, pack a picnic and enjoy the summer in Victoria Park? Looking for something fun for all the family? Take a bike ride along the Malago Greenway and stop along the way to feed the goats at Windmill Hill City Farm.

Close to Temple Meads Station and within a 15-minute walk from Bristol’s City Centre, lies Southville – a location which is fast becoming a popular choice to live. And, it is just one of the up and coming areas which is well known for its local independent shops, cosy cafes and quirky bars but this isn’t all that’s on offer. As a key creative hub in Bristol, South Bristol is a popular choice for artists to showcase their art and design work and is often home to community art trails – a great day out for locals and tourists alike!

What our staff say about working for us

I love seeing the [positive] change in our service users when they’re comfortable in their own home and they reach their targets and goals.

MayowaBand 6 Physiotherapist

The best thing about my job is that you have control of your own diary so you can arrange your day and the people I work with are brilliant! I love working with our service users – they are all so different and it really makes the day varied.

The most rewarding thing is caring for people who need palliative care – I will go above and beyond so that their families can spend valuable time with them and don’t experience added pressure or stress.

MarcBand 6 Senior Community Nurse

I love going to work. I’ve been doing my job for ten years and I absolutely love it – it’s so varied! It’s rewarding knowing I can make a difference in people’s lives. Whether that’s my service users or my colleagues.

ColleenBand 4 Associate Practitioner (just started a Nursing Apprenticeship)

I like the variety – every day is different!

RebeccaBand 5 Community Nurse

I enjoy seeing people in their own homes as you can get a better sense of how people really are in their own environments - the care we deliver is person-centred and it is satisfying to be a part of helping someone to achieve their goals. As a student Occupational Therapist, I feel supported working in a Multi-disciplinary team with good communication links. I never feel alone because there’s always other clinicians and Advanced Clinical Practitioners on hand to help me learn.
