If you have the relevant qualification and the motivation and enthusiasm to take on a new challenge such as this then please get in touch.
The team pride themselves on being able to provide high quality, tailored care and support to those in need.

The team provides input for individuals aged 18 and above, and focusses on brief, intensive input to prevent admission to psychiatric inpatient care (or providing timely discharge support if admission was not preventable).
The team are available every day, and work creatively to engage with individuals and their loved ones in order to maintain safety and begin the process of recovery. The team work with individuals with acute and severe psychiatric disorders and are familiar with high risk presentations. It is essential, therefore, that the team work cohesively and to shared goals, and all members of the team are encouraged to contribute to the care planning process and management of associated risks.
The successful candidate will possess not only the clinical attributes to assess, plan and implement care and bring about positive changes to peoples lives; but also the interpersonal and communication skills required to be a key part of the team.
Interviews will be week commencing the 26th of February 2018.
We look forward to hearing from you!

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.

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.
