A post has become available on the Bellevue ward unit for Women with Complex needs. This is an exciting opportunity to become part of a multi-disciplinary team committed to promoting rehabilitation and recovery for individuals with complex needs.We aim to offer the highest quality specialist service to our female only patient group in a safe and supportive environment. We aim to enable, encourage and support each woman to recover at a pace that feels safe and comfortable. The service follows the principles of the secure model of nursing care (Clarke-Moore and Barber, 2009), which is based upon the theory of attachment. This means that we strive to create a 'secure base' for both patients and staff. A secure base is created through the development of relationships where everyone feels safe, respected, valued and supported. Applicants would need to demonstrate a commitment to enable client's independence, rights, choices and dignity. Experience working with this client group would be desirable but not essential. Successful applicants should have excellent assessment and communication skills and be committed to professional development.

Main duties of the job

We care for our patients 7 days a week, 24 hours a day so you will need to have a flexible approach to take part in a full shift system including nights and weekends.

We are committed to exploring innovative ways of working to enhance patient experience. We know that our success depends on the commitment and dedication of our staff and we aim to recruit and retain the best staff possible.

We want Aneurin Bevan University Health Board to be an enjoyable and fulfilling place to work. We know that feeling valued at work has a positive impact on both staff and patients and our Values and Behaviours Framework highlights our commitment to this.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; Welsh and/or English speakers are equally welcome to apply.
