Early Intervention in Psychosis Service - PATH (Psychosis: Prevention, Assessment and Treatment in Hertfordshire)
Working in the West/North-West of Hertfordshire.
Are you a creative, reflective and flexible Mental Health Nurse, Social Worker or Occupational Therapist with a passion for working with people experiencing psychosis for the first time, committed to delivering personalised and meaningful care?
As a Band 6 Care Co-ordinator, you will be an active member of a skilled multi-disciplinary team. You will be working together with your colleagues to provide our PATH service in our Watford Team. Each Care Co-ordinator covers a designated locality – not the whole county. This means you’ll travel less and work out in the community, both in people’s homes and our local hub buildings. You’ll be passionate in the delivery of recovery based and collaborative approaches to care planning, working flexibly and creatively with people in order to achieve their individual goals.
Our ‘Caseload Mini Team’ workforce model is unique and highly supportive of collaborative working. You will work as the Leader of the Mini Team, working closely with a Band 4 & 5 colleague to manage the caseload together. This role is a real opportunity to build and develop your leadership and delegation skills, as well as maximising the opportunities and support provided by working closely with colleagues, as part of a mini team.
