Full Time
We have had new investment in mental health worker posts, peer support workers posts and support time recovery workers to support the integrated team to work as one around the patient, their families and their social networks. Our vision is for this new investment to help start a new era in our mental healthcare provision at NELFT, making us among the most holistic, relational and person-centred services in the country.
