An exciting opportunity has arisen for a dynamic and enthusiastic Band 6 Community Psychiatric Nurse to join our Primary Care Team delivering health care to the Homeless community in Birmingham. We are based in a GP practice near the city centre dedicated to the Homeless and have well established links to all other agencies involved in the care of the homeless including Birmingham City Council, the Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health Trust Homeless Community Mental Health Team and the Mental Health outreach team for rough sleepers and other 3rd sector homeless agencies.

Main duties of the job

This is an established post within the team to work alongside our current community psychiatric nurse and psychological therapist to deliver an enhanced primary care mental health service to our service users. A significant interest and experience in delivering psychological interventions such as CBT and DBT for common mental health problems would be an advantage.
