An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Hospital Team Manager within Oxfordshire County Council.

You will have excellent communication skills and demonstrate the ability to manage a busy dynamic team effectively prioritising daily challenges across a large geographical area. You will need to be confident in leading the team to make decisions that promote safe and timely discharges for patients from a variety of acute and community settings.  As the team currently receives referrals from the acute older adult psychiatric inpatient service, mental health experience would be an advantage.
