During this broadcast we will be discussing career opportunities, support and training within the West View Integrated Care Centre in Kent.
West View Integrated Care Centre provides both adult social care and health care on the same site. There is a residential care service comprising 15 beds with a dementia unit on the ground floor for people living with dementia and 15 beds for people that are physically frail. Both units are staffed by Kent County Council. On the first floor there are 30 beds providing rehabilitation for patients who need help to enable them to return to their own home after illness or injury. The service on the first floor is staffed by the NHS – Kent Community Health Foundation Trust.
