Mental Health has received significant investment as part of the Community Mental Health framework which has enabled the development of the mental health care offer within primary care.
This role is fundamental in the transformation of mental health services closer to peoples home. It will oversee the development and line management of the primary care mental health offer which is a multi-agency, multi-disciplinary approach, ensuring that patients will receive the care they need when they need by the organisation most able to provide that care. It requires skill and competence in the community mental health framework and the ability to navigate multiple agendas and processes to ensure smooth pathways of care.
Our Trust vision is to deliver world-class treatment and care, together with our service uses, their families and our partners in health and care. We have established an ambitious programme of transformation to support the improvements we need to make and create a need based, holistic approach to physical and mental wellbeing, treatment and recovery for our patients and resilience support for carers and families.
We believe our staff are our most valuable asset; and excellent, well-trained and motivated staff will help us deliver this transformation, creating a culture of compassion, collaboration and continuous improvement. We have our own unique, internal Academy of Excellence supporting registered staff to gain support throughout their careers to realise their aspirations as well as links to local universities to support further education and development. We support staff in clinical practice in many ways, and this includes having a team of Practice Educators to support and guide staff as they work alongside them. We are also increasingly looking to enable staff to move seamlessly into roles that best meet their needs at that time, both within the service and across the division as well as within the local healthcare system. We are one of only a few NHS Trusts in the country to offer fully funded leadership and management qualifications to staff.
You will need excellent assessment and communication skills. As a senior clinician, you will need to work alongside other agencies to promote holistic recovery focused care as well as producing reports, completing audits, supervising staff and running clinics as necessary.
You will need to be able to work autonomously with multiple providers managing complex relationships and be able to use your own initiative. The successful candidates will have sound clinical skills, be able to coordinate complex care packages, hold sensitive converstaions, have good administration and IT skills, as well as a good working knowledge of Care Planning processes, report writing, organisational skills, safeguarding knowledge and the ability to identify issues and demonstrate ownership of change processes.
