An exciting opportunity has arisen for a full time senior Registered Mental Health Nurse to join an established team that is based at Petersfield’s Community Hospital. We are looking at recruiting nurses due to the expansion of the CMHT.

Your main responsibilities will include care coordination of service users, response worker function, and physical health monitoring and supervision and mentorship of junior staff and students.

Consideration will be given for the right candidate to be supported in development to Band 6 competencies level from Band 5.

The Bordon and Petersfield Community Mental Health Team operates between the two sites, the main team base being Petersfield Hospital with a smaller base at Chase Hospital in Bordon and some working in the Havant Area. The team is well known for being approachable and open. We support each other and have developed a culture of honesty and integrity where problems are resolved quickly.

The post holder will be based at Petersfield Community Hospital and will need to work flexibly. You will also need to establish good working relationships with the local GPs, Italk service and other community and voluntary organisations. We’re investing in our mental health services in South East Hampshire, transforming the way we work to provide outstanding care and building truly rewarding careers.

Our teams are working to make sure there is ‘No Wrong Door’ for our patients and service users. Our people say that being part of this work is hugely rewarding and energising, that they can work alongside partners to ensure people get the right care in the right place.

We’re working collaboratively with patients and families, primary care, social care and the voluntary sector to improve responsiveness and experience, and deliver place-based mental health systems that meet local need.

The Community Mental Health Team is focussed on delivering a recovery service for clients with severe and enduring mental health issues. We support our staff in developing their clinical skills in attending post graduate training such as physical health and nurse prescribing.

Due to the rural nature of Petersfield and Bordon a car driver is essential with access to own car.

We are interested to hear from you and what new ideas you can bring to the team.
