3 x BAND 6 Community Mental Health Nurse Posts
In the Telford Crisis Resolution Home Treatment (CRHT) Team and Shropshire CRHT Team.
Exciting opportunities have arisen to apply for 3 x Band 6 Mental Health Nurses, registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
The Telford team is based at Hall Court and the Shropshire Team is based at The Redwoods. They provide mental health assessments, treatment and support to people in the borough of Telford & Wrekin and Shropshire.
We work with people who are experiencing a mental health crisis, require extra support alongside their regular support network or who can have the same treatment provided at home that they would receive in a Mental Health Hospital. As an integral team in the Urgent Care Pathway we work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
We are a team that consists of Band 5 and 6 Nurses, Band 3 Support Workers, Social Workers, Non-Medical Prescribers, Medical Staff, Occupational Therapists, Administrators and Business Support Staff. As we work with people with all types of mental health presentations, we need to have a range of skills and interests that create a strong and responsive team.
The role of a Band 6 Practitioner is primarily to assess people who have been referred to us in a mental health crisis. Further aspects of the role are as follows; assist in the development and growth of the team by providing clinical guidance and supervision, perform the role of shift coordinator and oversee the practical running of a day shift, support the provision of Home Treatment by providing clinical support to the team. Liaison with partner services both internal to the Trust and within the local community is an important part of the role and there is an expectation that the successful candidate would have the interpersonal skills to communicate, as necessary, with these other teams in a variety of ways. We have also recently developed this role to include working with local police which currently has been developed as integral to the role of the B6 practitioner.
Effective communication skills are an integral part of the role. Written and verbal skills will be vital in ensuring that information is documented, shared and recorded in an accurate, objective and prompt manner.
It is essential that you possess the skills to work as part of a team and have the confidence to work autonomously. You should possess the skills and enthusiasm to take on the challenge of a changing, modern day community mental health service.
Having proficient IT skills and being a car driver are essential.
The successful candidate will be supported via clinical, peer and management supervision. They will also be encouraged to expand their knowledge, skills and experience by spending time with other teams and professionals and take advantage of in-house, in Trust and external training opportunities.
If prior to the interview you would like to come and meet the team or simply want to call and talk about the position and role, you are welcome to speak with Steven Davies Operational Lead on 01952 741880.
We look forward to receiving your application.
