This discipline of care gives an opportunity to visit patients in their own home or their supported living accommodation.
We use the principles of the care programme approach and provide support for people in crisis and also those that need ongoing care co-ordination. We have incorporated patient centred care into the daily functioning of the team; which enables us to be focused on the recovery of the patient through a multidisciplinary (MDT) approach; with expertise from doctors, social workers, nurses, occupational therapists, support workers and psychological therapies staff. We also have twice weekly MDT meetings, where we discuss clinical matters within our supportive team. We strive to provide person centered evidence based care to patients, where possible working collaboratively with their families and carers.
The successful candidate will be a senior clinician within the team and lead a small team of newly qualified Nurses/Occupational Therapists, Nurse Associates, Peer Support Workers and Support Workers to provide care and interventions to a complex caseload of patients.
