Oxfordshire is developing its mental health crisis response provision following new investment. We are forming a new service, consistent with the nationally defined Crisis Resolution Home Treatment Team clinical model (CRHTT) .
This is an exciting opportunity to join the service at its inception and to be fully involved in developing and creating the highest quality service provision for service users and their families/supporters. Crisis Clinicians will be instrumental in establishing the service and then delivering intensive home treatments, alongside senior support workers, to service users in their own place of residence.
Accessibility, responsiveness and excellence in customer service with the highest regard for service experience will be at the heart of the service and Crisis Clinicians will use their skills and personal qualities to make this a reality. Connectedness to lived experience will be key, and the service will employ Peer Workers with lived experience to support team culture and service delivery that promotes recovery and independence.
Crisis Clinicians must be qualified professionals (RMN) with substantial experience and a proven track record in demonstrating Trust values in delivering services. The successful candidate will have excellent clinical assessment and risk management skills and be able to work flexibly and dynamically in challenging and changing circumstances.
Crisis Clinicians will deliver recovery focused psycho-social crisis intervention to service users and their families and will coordinate plans of care with other Oxford Health teams and other agencies ensuring transitions between services are safe and seamless. Oxford Health works in partnership with 5 third sector providers as part of the Oxford Mental Health Partnership (OMHP),and the new crisis service will be working closely with partners, in particular Oxfordshire Mind and the Safe Haven services in order to ensure diversity and choice of service for people experiencing a mental health crisis. Crisis Clinicians must have the skills and aptitude to work creatively and proactively with our third sector partners.
In return, we will offer opportunities for professional development and opportunities to influence and contribute to service development. You will be provided with regular supervision, appraisal and support. The work involves shifts across 24 hours (including nights) and a variety of shift patterns and working arrangements are available including long days and long nights – we welcome flexible working requests.
