The Ipswich Integrated Delivery Team (Ipswich IDT) is currently looking for a full-time Senior Community Mental Health Nurse to deliver high quality mental health treatment in collaboration with our service users and carers. You will be responsible for co-producing care plans that promote recovery; social inclusion; occupational support and independence. You will be based at Mariner House in central Ipswich where you will need the ability to travel independently to visit service users around the Ipswich area.
We use a recovery-focused approach to working with people who use our services. Recovery in mental health is about building a meaningful and satisfying life whether or not there are symptoms or mental health difficulties. A recovery approach focuses on an individual’s strength, skills and personal goals. This is different from traditional “treat and cure” mental health services in which recovery usually means being symptom free. Although there are many people who will be able be able to recover fully from a mental health problem , there are others who will have on-going symptoms and periods of relapse. Recovery oriented services recognise that every individual is different and recovery means different things to different people.
As a Senior Mental Health Nurse you would be the responsible for managing a caseload of community service users using the Care Plan Approach, with clinical support and input from the wider multi-disciplinary team. In addition you will also be required to take on the management supervision and appraisal of staff you supervise. You will in turn receive regular supervision and appraisal where your on-going training and development needs will be identified and reviewed.
Tell us about what you’ll be able to bring to our service to enhance the lives of our service users on the application form and help us to make a difference.

DISCLOSURE AND BARRING SERVICE CHECK (formerly CRB) FOR POSTS WITH DIRECT SERVICE USER CONTACT - Please be advised that due to recent changes in the DBS Service, organisations no longer receive copies of DBS Disclosures – these are sent directly to candidates only. Therefore, it will be your responsibility, if successful, to ensure that this is taken to the appointing officer as soon as you receive it. Alternatively, if you have subscribed to the update service, we will be able to check your status once we have your authority to do so.
The Trust has now introduced a DBS Update Service which is a contractual requirement. You need to subscribe when you have applied for your DBS clearance and there is a time limit to subscribe of 19 days after receipt of your DBS disclosure. Please ensure that this is completed within the set time scale.
This update service is an annual subscription at a cost of £13 to you. This will enable the Trust to have instant online access to your DBS record, with your consent, and so will remove the need for you to have to apply for this repeat check again.
This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
