Job Details

Southgate Ward is based at Wedgwood House on the main West Suffolk Hospital site in Bury St Edmunds.

We are looking for an individual who is committed and able to integrate within an established large multi-disciplinary team which is supportive and friendly. We pride ourselves as a team on delivering care that is second to none and we are consistently rated as good for caring by CQC. Do you have experience with physical and mental health issues within later life? Do you have an appreciation of the wider aspects of dementia and are interested in working to support those who do?

Do you have a strong team work ethic and sense of accountability? Good assessment and communication skills and the right attributes to enhance the team are crucial, as is the ability to communicate with the wider MDT.

As a team we are keen to develop and share our knowledge. We hold case discussion and reflection sessions, and alongside individual managerial supervision you will also receive clinical supervision. You will have a personal development plan to look at your strengths and how we can work with you to build on them.

We offer a stimulating experience in a specialist service and are proud of the quality of our achievements. We are enthusiastic about working with older adults - if you are too and find people fascinating and inspiring and want to join a management team to deliver great outcomes, we have the opportunity for you.

Main duties of the job

The post holder will be a qualified Mental Health Nurse and/or Registered Nurse (Adult) with experience of working to support older people and their families within a MDT. You will demonstrate a sound understanding of your role as a Lead Professional or Primary Nurse and join our friendly multidisciplinary team working closely with our statutory and non statutory partners to provide appropriate interventions and promote recovery for those individuals admitted to the ward.

Diane Hull - NSNHSFT

Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust is the main provider of specialist mental health services for the counties of Norfolk and Suffolk, serving a population of 1.6 million people. We are a large organisation covering a wide geographical area divided into ‘Care Groups'. There are also Care Groups supporting children, family and young people’s services, and specialist services, including Forensic mental health services.

Each Care Group has its own Leadership team, with the aim of supporting clinically led decision making locally, to support the needs of people accessing services. 

We have inpatient facilities across both counties with smaller bases in rural locations. Many of the Trust’s services are offered in the community, enabling people accessing services to receive the support they need in an environment familiar to them.

At NSFT we believe in recovery and wellbeing, and understand the importance of good physical health, maintaining relationships and achieving a balance between treatments and continuing an active life.

The people in our care, families and carers are at the centre of all aspects of all we do and are vital in helping shape and support our service strategy. Our strategy supports and enables people with mental health problems to live a fulfilling life and make their personal recovery journey. 

Norfolk and Suffolk, in the East of England are some of the safest places to live in the UK, with low crime rates making it a community to be proud of. Housing prices are frequently cited as a reason to move here, as you get an incredible amount for your money compared with other major UK cities.

About our location

Norwich in Norfolk has something for everyone. It has retained a strong local identity and, with that, a sense of community. Locals say hello to each other, baristas remember our coffee orders and you’ll be among the first to know about interesting local projects.  This strong sense of community, along with excellent shopping, eating out, affordable house prices and excellent schooling is why Norwich has been ranked by the Guardian as the UK’s best city to work in.

Ipswich in Suffolk is steeped in history, yet full of life. According to The London Economic, affordable house prices and hourly commutes to London have earned Suffolk’s county town a slot in their top ten property destinations. “In Ipswich we have got a fantastic cultural offer far better than what towns and cities bigger than us are offering.  We have got very good transport links, especially to London, and house prices are a lot cheaper in the area.

One of Norfolk’s most famous stretches of beaches, Great Yarmouth attracts around six million tourists each year! Situated at the mouth of the River Yare, this old port town is home to beautiful golden sandy beaches and neighbouring towns and villages with scenic views and homely charm.

Full to the brim of history and with a vibrant town centre, King’s Lynn is the ideal destination to enjoy the superb mix of history, shopping and entertainment on offer!  A small, historic market town, King's Lynn is the perfect place to live and work, with fantastic train links and short drives to fantastic beaches.

Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk is a unique and dazzling historic gem. An important market town with a richly fascinating heritage, the striking combination of medieval architecture, elegant Georgian squares and glorious cathedral and abbey gardens provide a distinctive visual charm. With prestigious shopping, an award-winning market, plus variety of attractions and places to stay, Bury St Edmunds is under two hours from London and convenient for Cambridge.

For family members who love (or need) to travel, you’re ideally located.
