The team has invested in considerable staff training and development over the years to develop staff skills with working with our patient group.

You'll be communicating with a wide variety of clients; professionals; partners and agencies.
As part of working in our team you will be working with some individuals who can present as chaotic & emotionally dysregulated. This can be a challenging patient group, however, we have a positive attitude & non-judgemental approach toward our patient group, understanding what has brought them to their current presentation, recognising individual strengths and establishing clear, focussed, professional relationships that identify clear boundaries and expectations for both the patient and clinician. This empowers both patient and clinician to see what can be achieved through clear collaborative care planning.

Time is spent investing in your development and there are lots of opportunities to shadow colleagues on duty, during assessments and on visits when you first join us.

This will allow you to confidently undertake the role of delivering treatment and interventions to your patient's. You will also be part of a duty team and undertake trusted assessments. The nature of the team means that you bring your knowledge, experience, enthusiasm and empathy and are exposed to the knowledge and skills of other colleagues within the team which promotes growth and development within your own practice at an accelerated rate. We are a team that recognises the work we do can be difficult at times and we have a strong supportive approach- both in professional matters and passing on good practice, learning and sharing risk but also when it impacts on us personally.
