If so, Psychiatric Liaison could be the speciality for you.......

What can you expect?

We are a forward thinking team with the focus on meeting the mental health needs of those presenting to the emergency department or who are admitted to in-patient beds in RCHT.

Our PLAN accredited service seeks to provide parity of esteem for those who present with mental illness and mental health crisis while in hospital.

We are looking for a highly dedicated nurse who is motivated, compassionate and highly clinically skilled who can work autonomously in a fast-paced environment. As well as working with our general acute colleagues, mental health colleagues, we also work alongside other teams in the crisis response including - Alcohol liaison nurses, drug and alcohol services, safeguarding, Domestic violence team, homelessness services and Dementia and Older Persons mental health Liaison team.

Main duties of the job

The Adult Liaison Psychiatry Service based at Royal Cornwall Hospital has provided a highly regarded service since 1999 and in May 2018 commenced a CORE 24 service that extended the clinical service for patients and the hospital to 24/7. The success of this service has led to increased funding for further Psychiatric Liaison Nurses.

As an experienced clinician you will join our Adult Psychiatric Liaison multi-disciplinary team providing a service to the acute hospital with a team of nurses, a team manager, consultant psychiatrists, CT2 Dr and F1 Dr, medical and team secretaries.

About us

We're an NHS community and mental health provider Trust based in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. We deliver community and hospital-based care to improve people's physical and mental health. We also provide specialist support to people with dementia or a learning disability.

We are a people organisation and people matter to us. As part of the team, you'll help support the health and wellbeing of the people who live and visit this beautiful part of the UK.

Over 4,000 people make up the Trust. This includes doctors, nurses, therapists, plus admin and support staff.

We work in people's homes, in community clinics and bases. Some staff work from one of our 13 community hospitals. Our aspiration is to have great people, provide great care, be a great place to work and a great partner.

Just over 532,000 people live here. A third of people who live in Cornwall are supported by acute hospital services in Devon. As a result, we also work closely with our partners in Devon. In the summer, and during other holidays lots of people choose to visit the area. This increases the numbers of people who use our services.
