If you are someone thinking about the next step in your career or a new professional challenge, this would be a great opportunity for you within a supportive learning environment, not just locally at Parklands, but also supported across the Acute Care Pathway in Southern Health.

Main duties of the job

In January, 2024, Southern Health created an Acute Care Pathway. The reason for this is to bring the four acute sites and Crisis Teams working alongside each other, even though they are geographically spread out across Hampshire. The vision is to build a cohesive leadership team across the Acute Care Pathway which overarches high patient safety and quality of care, with the Fundamentals of Care at the heart of everything we do at all levels.

This job will involve building relationships across ours and other Organisations, working in partnership with the Local Authority and Stakeholders.

About us

Southern Health is one of the largest NHS Foundation Trusts in the UK, specialising in mental health and learning disabilities, as well as offering physical health community-based services.

With a workforce of more than 7000 and a footprint that spans more than 200 sites across Hampshire, we're wholeheartedly committed to providing the best possible healthcare, reaching a range of diverse communities, whilst placing patients and staff at the forefront of all our endeavours.

We are currently working closely with other NHS Trusts to integrate all our collective community, mental health, and learning disability services. Our new organisation, to be known as Hampshire and Isle of Wight NHS Foundation Trust, is set to launch in July 2024.

The transformation will happen in staggered stages Hampshire CAMHS, part of Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust joined Southern Health in February 2024, with Isle of Wight NHS Trust mental health and community services transitioning in early May 2024. The final combination of Southern Health and Solent Trusts is anticipated to occur in July 2024, when the new organisation will be formed.

Our new Trust will continue to cater to the unique needs of different communities, making healthcare across the county more accessible, as well as offering staff more opportunities for career development, training and partnership working.

Join us as we embark on this exciting journey to shape the future of healthcare in Hampshire.
