MQI wishes to appoint a Health Outreach and Inclusion Link Worker

The role of the Health Outreach and Inclusion Service Link Worker is a new MQI initiative developed in partnership with the Inclusion Health team from St James Hospital. Many socially excluded people have low health aspirations and poor expectations of services and get little opportunity to shape their care.

The focus of this role is to create strong relationships based on trust and to maintain communication with individuals experiencing homelessness; to engage and facilitate their access from A&E and Primary care to specialist treatment; and offer support and follow-up appointments as appropriate.

We believe that improving engagement and communication with both, clients and healthcare providers will promote an integrated care approach, improve health outcomes and minimize costs.

This is a 2 year contract initially with a view to extend. Please find attached Job Description for further details.
