Contract Type
Full Time
A vacancy has arisen due to previous post holder leaving the post.

The area comprises 4 CCG areas Vale of York; Harrogate & Rural District; Hambleton, Richmondshire & Whitby; Scarborough & Ryedale. The 4 CCGs have worked together with TEWV to create this service. The proposal was been awarded money from NHS England PMH Community Transformation Fund in wave 2.

The service operates across two TEWV localities (NY & Y&S) alongside the established Mental Health Services in each of the 4 CCG areas, which are centered on York, Harrogate, Northallerton & Scarborough. However, the service is managed operationally by the York Directorate.

The model is a single service running on a multi-hub model. Some staff (Medical/ Psychology/ Peer Support/ Nursery Nurse) work across the county or into clusters of hubs. Care co-ordinators work into one hub, based locally & sharing office space with local teams. This fosters good local relationships & ensure our practitioners are available & accessible in each area. Outpatient clinics & group work are available in each locality, with frequency being flexible & depending on need. The York hub is located at Huntington House, close to the city centre. The service has hubs in the other 3 areas. Team meetings/ supervision etc rotate through different venues to ensure it is accessible to all staff.
