We are looking to recruit a Nurse Practitioner Operational and Practice Lead for Physical Health Monitoring in Patients with Eating Disorders. The Community Eating Disorder Service (CEDS) is a developing and evolving service and is made up of a multi-professional team comprising of a Physician, Psychiatrist, Nurses, Psychologists, Dietitians, Assistant Practitioners, Peer support workers and Administrators. Each patient has a named clinician who supports them with their psychological health and wellbeing. Integrating physical and psychiatric care for patients with eating disorders is essential in managing the complexity of their needs, however this has been challenging and has not been achieved successfully nationally.
- Are you someone looking for a career in one of the UK’s most respected mental health and learning disability trusts?
- Would you like to do a job that makes a difference every day?
This is an exciting opportunity to join an innovative multi-disciplinary team, to lead both clinically and operationally a new physical health monitoring service for people in Devon (Excluding Plymouth), who have a moderate to severe eating disorder and ensure that this provision links with other aspects of their treatment to enable a holistic approach to both their physical and mental health.
We are seeking an experienced, passionate and motivated individual to join the team at this exciting time. You will have a key role in leading, developing and providing a novel approach to resolving these challenges in Devon. You will have a unique opportunity to have training and supervision from both psychiatric and physical health consultants to help you and the team develop the skills needed to manage the physical monitoring of this patient population.
