We are Airedale NHS Foundation Trust Community Services delivering community-based services aimed at supporting people to manage their own health at home and reducing the need for people to go into hospital. What matters to you is important to us.
We care for people across Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven every day in partnership with other health, social care and voluntary community services (VCS) to deliver joined up care in community settings. The intention is to provide good out of hospital care and reduce avoidable admissions int acute hospitals or when admission is necessary, we help people return home from hospital as soon as possible.
By providing community based services aimed at preventing health problems from getting worse, we help to reduce the need for people to go into hospital. The Trust works closely with other health and social care services and VCS to support a shift from care in acute hospitals, into more joined up care in community, close to home.
The Community Team have completed their photo project – a pilot run by Our Creative Connection, a social enterprise that uses photography for social change. Working with a small group of volunteers from the community teams the project was aimed at helping staff learn new skills, to be able to share what it’s like working for the NHS and in community, through their own photos.
The goal was to create photos that could be used for recruitment by highlighting the real stories of people within the Trust and their everyday lives.
There are plans for an online exhibition of all the amazing photos and they will also feature on the Trust jobs website and in upcoming recruitment campaigns.
