About you
We would love to hear from you if you are an enthusiastic and forward thinking clinician who wants to be part of a dynamic multi-disciplinary team who wishes to engage in high quality care and consistently aim to improve safety and practice. The location
Langdon Hospital, Exeter Road, Dawlish, Devon EX7 0NR
We are based at Langdon Hospital in Dawlish, a 111 acre campus-style site which includes the Dewnans Centre, a state-of-the-art ‘medium secure’ unit, as well as 2 ‘low secure’ units and an open ward. About us
We provide forensic mental health services for the south west region and have an excellent reputation. Our Directorate employs over 350 staff within 3 local delivery units (prison mental healthcare; inpatients and community). We have ambitious plans in place to expand and further develop our existing services, including extending mental health care within the prisons, further expansion of our community services and redevelopment of our low secure estate.
We support people with significant mental health needs who have had contact with the criminal justice system and require a wide range of treatments, therapies and care to support their recovery. Recovery is at the heart of everything we do - it is about people building a meaningful life and represents a shift away from focusing on illness and symptoms towards a focus on personal health, strengths and wellness.
Our patient group represents some of the most excluded members of society with their combination of severe mental disorder, substance abuse and serious offending. Our principle purpose is to provide treatment and rehabilitation to help our patients re-join their communities with meaningful relationships and jobs.Our offer to you
