An opportunity is available for an experienced and enthusiastic Mental Health Practitioner to provide specialist mental health care within the Integrated Placed Based Team in the Sleaford area.
Lincolnshire is one of only 12 areas in England to be chosen to lead on transforming mental health services. These privileged roles provide great opportunity for enthusiastic, motivated, and committed team members to lead the changes locally, working with partners across health, care, and community. We are forging ahead in our community transformation plans to offer a dynamic, localised approach that is responsive, evaluated & tailored to local need, targeting health inequalities. We are focused on helping people towards prevention and recovery, enabling them to live well in their community as much as possible. We work closely with the local community to design and improve services, ensuring we use the existing assets and work to continually improve and develop these.

Within this role, you would work as a valued member across primary and secondary care and with the neighbourhood teams to locally support the mental health transformation and improve the lives of people who access healthcare services.

The successful candidate will be an experienced clinician with proven skills in working with people who have a range of highly complex mental health needs, demonstrating practice that is evidence-based and innovative. They will demonstrate adaptability, excellent communication skills and self-motivation. In addition to undertaking mental health assessments, you will take on a caseload of highly complex service users to provide therapeutic interventions and coordinate their care.

A comprehensive trust induction will be offered and opportunities for CPD. Management and Clinical supervision are provided regularly. The candidate will be encouraged to contribute to service development and expected to supervise junior colleagues.

If you would like any further information or meet to discuss this opportunity please contact Emma Barrass, Service Manager at emma.barrass@nhs.net.
