Gloucestershire CAMHS provides high quality specialist mental health service to children and young people up to their 18th birthday and has locality bases in Stroud, Cheltenham and Gloucester.

This is an excellent opportunity to work in the children's Learning Disability Service. We are seeking a highly motivated and committed individual to join our team. The post holder will be based in Cheltenham but allocated a locality patch within Gloucestershire, therefore your own transport is essential.

We work with Children and young people who attend a special school, we see them at home, in clinic or in school to deliver evidence based interventions.

The role involves holding a clinical caseload of children and young people with moderate-severe Learning Disabilities. To offer assessment and interventions to children experiencing, mental health difficulties and or challenging behaviour, including sleep difficulties. We adopt a PBS (positive behaviour support) approach throughout our work.

We deliver a range of courses to families around parenting and behaviour management. We undertake clinical risk assessment as part of routine care coordinator responsibilities, clinical formulations and robust risk management plans.

This role involves extensive multi agency working.

Main duties of the job

Gloucestershire Health & Care Services deliver community health & social care services for adults & older people via a model of locality-based cluster teams. Each of the clusters consist of Nursing, Therapy and Reablement Teams working closely alongside social work professionals to provide support to people within their own homes and within bed based reablement units. We work closely with GPs, local communities, acute and community hospital(s) and other partners to enable people to live as independently and for as long as possible within their own home.

We are a clinically led organisation where individuals are valued for their unique professional contribution to ensuring best patient care. Continuing Professional Development is a key priority and we actively promote and develop the broadening roles that Physiotherapists and Allied Health Professionals are able to contribute. We have an extensive range of Advanced Practitioners, Clinical Specialists, Professional Leads and Non-Medical Prescribers across a wide range of specialisms that actively support clinical colleagues within our organisation. Our well established, structured Clinical Supervision and In-Service Training programmes contribute to the learning culture which develops and challenges thinking and practice.

About us

The Trust aims to recruit and retain the best possible staff who, through the application of their skills, qualification and experience, will make a positive contribution to our business of providing quality health care services.

This post requires the post holder to be able to undertake all statutory and mandatory training and post holders must be able to undertake physical interventions. Fitness for physical intervention will be assessed by Occupational Health.

A valid UK driving licence plus the use of own transport for business purposes is essential. For qualifying staff the Trust has a Lease Car Scheme in place and also offers a popular Salary Sacrifice Car Scheme with our partner Tusker.
