We hope that you will join us as our Lead Community Learning Disability Nurse, supporting the development of the new Intensive Therapeutic Short Break Service across the Pennine Care footprint.

This is a senior leadership role for a community learning disability nurse. The postholder will form part of this new multiagency team consisting of clinical psychology, learning disability nursing, speech therapy, occupational therapy and support workers. The Intensive Therapeutic Short Break Service sits alongside the Community Learning Disability and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services across the footprint, consisting of community learning disability nursing, clinical psychology and psychiatry.

This is a role that will truly enable you to make a system wide difference to children with severe learning disabilities and complex needs. Work with us and put your passion into practice.

Main duties of the job

The team will be working with a small number of children and young people who have severe learning disabilities and who have been identified as having complex needs including autism and/or behaviour that challenges, that require intensive support. Working alongside the local respite and short breaks services, the Intensive Therapeutic Short Break Service will work together to create, instigate and support person centred positive behaviour support plans with the aim of improving the quality of life for this group of children and young people and reduce any restrictions or restraints (in accordance with NICE guidance).

This is a chance to be involved in helping to deliver a service based on the principles of the Ealing Model, including positive behavioural support and trauma informed interventions, whilst drawing on your knowledge and expertise of the needs of this population. It is an exciting and transformational project. You will support the consultant lead with the mobilisation of this model across our five localities, linking to the dynamic risk register and working alongside families.
