The Intensive Community Assessment & Treatment Team (ICATT) is a service for adults with an Intellectual Disability and complex mental health difficulties and / or challenging behaviours.

ICATT provides a rapid, short term assessment and treatment service for people with an intellectual disability who may challenge services and have additional mental health needs. The ICAT Team seek to prevent a hospital admission where it is appropriate to do so, enabling service users to receive treatment and care within their own homes, remain involved in their care as part of their own community and therefore minimising the disruption of their lives and the lives of those caring for them

We offer specialist support tailored to the individual drawing flexibly on a broad range of models and interventions working with a highly skilled Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT).

You will be delivering a high-quality specialist health service provision to adults with an Intellectual Disability.

You will be responsible for managing your own complex caseload, often providing care co-ordination.

This involves collaboration, both across the MDT and networking with professionals and agencies external to Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust.

Main duties of the job

Patients accessing the service have complex and diverse needs; you will provide knowledge of multi-disciplinary/multi professional working, risk management and associated mental health care needs, to the team.

As part of the ICAT team you will deliver best practice within relevant legal/national frameworks and pathways. Managerial supervision is offered on a monthly basis and you will seek clinical supervision from a professional outside of the team. You will be expected to provide oversight and guidance to junior staff within the team.

You will have proven team working skills; a high level of self-motivation and a flexible approach to your work, coupled with a positive attitude and be naturally caring and compassionate and have good communication skills. You will be committed to providing high quality care and undertake evidence-based practice consistent with the Trust's values.

You must be able to demonstrate awareness of current issues and legislation affecting people with an Intellectual Disability.

You will be required to maintain up to date records and documentation in line with Trust Policies and NMC Regulations providing support to carers and families of individuals who access our services.
