Optimum Care Launches New Services

Optimum Care has launched new rapid hospital discharge services on behalf of the Belfast and Northern Health and Social Care Trusts.

Hospital discharge delay is an unfortunate problem being experienced in Northern Ireland’s hospitals so to aid rapid discharge and reduce the need for delays in a patient returning home, Belfast and Northern Trusts have commissioned Optimum Care to assist with improving this service.

Optimum Care Health Care Assistants who are delivering this re-ablement focussed service have been selected and trained specifically for the role. At Optimum Care, staff have the opportunity to progress their careers and improve their potential. As this service requires additional skills we were delighted to create 20 new more highly paid roles for Community Carers who are taking on increased responsibility.

As part of Optimum Care’s commitment to delivering high quality care, for the Northern Trust, as the geographical spread is the highly rural Causeway and Glens Council Area, purchased and taken delivery of two new four wheel drive cars pictured here.
