Main duties of the job

As a Mental Health Trust, Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust are driven by excellent standards in physical healthcare, recognising that dual care is the best care. We are committed to dignified and effective management of and response to deteriorating patients, with resuscitation outcomes forming a crucial part of that. In order to make good on that commitment, we are excited to offer a unique opportunity for a suitably qualified healthcare professional to join our Resuscitation Service, which forms part of the Physical Healthcare Team.

About us

This post provides excellent opportunities to connect and engage with clinical teams from all over the Trust. Through the provision of dynamic, interactive training sessions in Immediate Life Support, Basic Life Support and First Aid, you will have a direct and fundamental impact on the competencies of all clinical staff, ensuring that they have the training and confidence needed to recognise deteriorating patients and apply resuscitation when required. This is a challenging and rewarding role, one that is crucial to the protection of patients in our care and the frontline teams that support them.

Job description Job responsibilities

In addition to the delivery of mandatory resuscitation training, you will also have the unique opportunity to get involved in our brand-new Simulation training. This innovative programme offers all day, interactive training sessions that cover a variety of real-life mental and physical healthcare scenarios, enabling staff to practice and hone their responses in a safe and supportive environment. This initiative reflects the creative and dynamic nature of the Resuscitation team, which strives to provide a supportive working environment with flexibility and attention to well-being.

Alongside the core training requirements, there will be exposure to clinical responsibilities relating to cardiac arrest and resuscitation equipment audits; full training will be provided.
