The Combined Placement and Sourcing Team (CPST) is a growing and developing service with exciting plans for the future. We would love you to be part of this.
The CPST was a brand new team established in April 2020 as a vital part of our COVID-19 response to support local communities and residents. They work across health and social care to ensure that people in hospital are effectively and supportively discharged. This gets people back to their lives and the place that they call home in the timely way that they need.
We also ensure that people with longer-term needs are looked after and receive the services they need to live good, independent lives.
The CPST works closely with social work teams, hospital discharge teams, partner organisations and service providers to ensure that people receive the most effective support. They play a pivotal role in sourcing services and work with providers to enable people to access the right support that:
- builds on their strengths
- keeps them safe and well
- maximises their levels of independence.
This is a highly valued team and we are proud to have facilitated over 11,000 hospital discharges since April 2020. We have also supported over 4,600 people to meet their assessed social care needs.
