An exciting opportunity has arisen to work within the our Barnet adult mental health community services at a time of innovation and service development. There are a number of clinical posts available within each of the three Core Community Mental Health Teams in Barnet for people keen to make a difference . These roles will be involved, as part of the wider team, in helping to adapt the existing service within the new transformation process. This process is in response to the NHS 5 year plan to develop integrated mental health services around the Primary Care Networks and provides new opportunities for people identifying with mental health issues. By working closely with our GP practices, Community services and Social care partners, we can provide excellent and timely person centred care for people .

As part of the Community Services Transformation we are moving away from the Care Programme Approach model of care and adopting the Dialog + care planning and review tool in order to create a more inclusive, equal service for all service users and ensuring that everyone who requires support and intervention from adult mental health services has a person centred, co-produced care plan using the dialog + tool.
