Join us and be part of Warrington Recovery Team's Community Mental Health (CMH) transformation. We are looking for an experienced mental health nurse practitioner, to help us implement the community mental health transformation road map.
In our new Recovery Team, we are providing high quality, low and high intensity care. We are moving to a needs led, rather than diagnostically informed model of care, that enables us to offer timely, responsive care to a wider number of people.
You will be involved with triage of assessments and needs led formulations alongside provision of timed (upto 12 weeks) stabilisation, extended assessment for service users who have complex needs where recovery focussed care is difficult to initially establish.
The practitioner may then support the safe transition back to primary care or into one of our high intensity programmes/care approaches.
Main duties of the job
The post holder will work with local services to provide mental health assessment, appropriate triage and deliver short term evidence based practice interventions.
You will work closely with the Team Management, Clinical Lead for transformation and colleagues in the Recovery Team, to support effective patient flow, ensuring timely interventions and positive outcomes for our service users are delivered.
Mersey Care is one of the largest Trusts, providing physical health and mental health services in the North West, serving more than 11 million people.
We offer specialist inpatient and community services that support physical and mental health and specialist inpatient mental health, learning disability, addiction and brain injury services. Mersey Care is one of only three trusts in the UK that offer high security mental health facilities.
At the heart of all we do is our commitment to perfect care - care that is safe, effective, positively experienced, timely, equitable and efficient. We support our staff to do the best job they can and work alongside service users, families and carers, to design and develop future services together. We're currently delivering a programme of organisational and service transformation to significantly improve the quality of services we provide and safely reduce cost as we do so.
