This week’s duty manager

This week’s duty manager is Penny Jenkins. Her phone number is 07721 127758 both for calls or texts if you have any queries, concerns or issues.

Please text her first thing in the morning if you are undertaking a home visit on your own and let her know:

  • Time of visit and time you expect to finish.
  • Carer name and reference number (Database and/or Mosaic if applicable)

Please also text her if it is after 5pm and:

  • You have finished your evening group
  • You have finished your evening hospital shift, once you are out of the building and in your car.

If she hasn’t heard from you within 15 minutes of your expected finish time she will call you to check that you are ok, so do let her know if you are running late.

Do not email as these are unlikely to be picked up immediately.

If you are working on the late Wednesday Response Line or Saturday Morning shift, please make sure you are aware of who your colleagues are. If you are on together in a building, please try to go in to start your shift and to leave the shift together.
