A care company is creating 25 jobs after being been chosen to help support people being discharged from hospital.
Cambridgeshire County Council has chosen Radis Community Care as one of its partners to operate an important service to help people coming out of hospital, with the care they need at home.
The firm says that as concerns over bed blocking in Cambridgeshire continue to grow, they hope to offer the support needed in the community.
Rachel Wheatley, manager of the Huntingdon branch, said: “The bed blocking situation in Cambridgeshire is an ongoing problem that tends to get worse through the winter, when the NHS and social care providers have historically struggled to cope with demand.
“As an established care provider in the county, we are excited to be delivering this essential service that we hope will relieve pressure on the NHS.
“The aim of the service is to help people get back on their feet and to live more independently so that they aren’t dependent upon longer term care at home and potential readmission to hospital.”
Radis will operate the ‘Rapid Hospital Discharge and Transition’ service, supporting people across Cambridge, South Cambridge, East and Fenland and Huntingdonshire.
