Are you an RMN?

Do you have experience working with Eating Disorders?

Are you looking to work in a supportive and dynamic team?

Are you motivated to make a difference to people’s lives and experiences?

Can you provide effective Care Coordination – working in partnership with individuals to provide the best possible care and outcomes?

If “yes” then we would be excited to hear from you.

We are an age inclusive recovery focused Eating Disorder Team with the principal objective of providing Eating Disorder specific Mental Health Assessments and Therapeutic Interventions?

The West Suffolk Eating Disorder Team has developed in line with N.I.C.E. Guidance and the Royal College of Psychiatry MARSIPAN Working Group Guidance. We offer a range of therapeutic interventions from a systemic perspective - if you have experience of working in this way or would like to develop your practice in this area this might be the role for you.

We work in a specialist team holding case responsibility, as well as working in a shared care approach with other teams and partner agencies as appropriate. Part of the role will be to develop an early intervention approach within the Thetford area, but you will be working in all areas of West Suffolk covered by the team.  Our main office is based in Newmarket, Suffolk.

We are a multi-disciplinary team consisting of nursing, psychology, family therapy, CAT therapy, dietetics, physiotherapy and assistant practitioners who work closely to promote positive mental health, well-being and recovery through the delivery of excellent services.

We actively seek to develop our skills and knowledge through supervision, support mechanisms and training.

We have two vacancies within the team as we have secured new funding: a Band 6 Nurse 0.9 wte and a Band 5 Nurse 0.6 wte.

 If this is an attractive opportunity for you we would welcome an application from you to work in our Eating Disorder Team in West Suffolk.
