Help us to transform women’s Secure Services.

Whitlingham Ward is a purpose built 16 bed ward offering a Women’s Secure Service in Norwich. In 2017, we became the first service in the country to offer treatment opportunities to women at both Low and Medium levels of security in one ward, and we have done this whilst completely rethinking our approach to restriction and restrictive interventions.

If you would like to be part of a team who are transforming how women in secure settings experience mental health services, then why not come and discuss what we have already achieved and what our plans are fir the future..

We will offer extensive training opportunities in addition to our existing mandatory and statutory learning package, including Mentalisation Based Therapy training, Learning Disability and Autistic Spectrum Disorder training and specific training on supporting women with a diagnosis of emotionally unstable personality disorder.

 

As part of this transformation, we would like to recruit 2 Registered Nurses to join the team, so if you have the skills, enthusiasm and creativity and want to be part of our journey, we would love to hear from you.
