The National Inpatient Centre for Psychological Medicine Needs YOU!

Do you want to deliver individually tailored, biopsychosocial care to clients with complex rehabilitation needs from across the UK?

Do you want to have your observations and assessments valued by your colleagues in weekly MDT meetings?

Do you want to contribute to the lasting improvements made by patients who have struggled for years with their illnesses?

The National Inpatient Centre for Psychological Medicine (NICPM) is looking for qualified Mental Health Nurses to build up our team of experienced Liaison Psychiatry practitioners.

Administering medication alongside other treatments - Medications are just one part of the treatment we provide for patients here at NICPM. We would like you to be responsible for delivering a range of therapeutic interventions to our patients as directed by the MDT.

Working with families and carers - Help build and maintain relationships with the wider care network for our patients. Helping families to understand the journey a person has gone through in order to support their ongoing rehabilitation goals post discharge.
