Full Time
We are looking for a dedicated and pro-active nurse or registered practitioner to work as part of our well-established Street Triage Team. The team will work closely with the Cleveland Constabulary but will be aligned to the wider crisis services already provided by Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust within the locality.

The team will work in partnership with Cleveland Police to identify people with mental health needs and support them into appropriate services, creating effective partnerships and tackling stigma.

Main duties of the job

The team will offer advice to the police to assist their decision making and ensure people have access to the correct support, ensuring they get the right help at the right time and the right care from the right person.

If it is identified that the person is in a mental health crisis, then the STT practitioner will be contacted by the police, so that the STT can conduct a full triage with the person, to determine the most relevant response, based on need and risk.

If the STT clinician cannot triage via the telephone, they will need to conduct a face to face triage or assessment and then devise a plan following this assessment which will consider the needs and safety of the person in crisis.

About us

We are the Mental Health & Learning Disability NHS Trust for County Durham and Darlington, Teesside, North Yorkshire, York and Selby.

From education and prevention, to crisis and specialist care --our talented and compassionate teams work in partnership with our patients, communities and partners to help the people of our region feel safe, understood, believed in and cared for.

We nurture the recovery journey of anyone in need of our help. In Our Trust, everyone has a say in how they are supported and treated because we listen to every person in our care until they feel understood. Our patients, their families and carers work together with us towards better mental health.

We're committed to new thinking that improves the wellbeing of our region. We connect with our communities and partners to get mental health care right, in areas that really need it.

We won't rest until everyone in our region has the mental health care they need, to lead their best possible life.
