VACANCY FOR TWO BAND 6 COMMUNITY PSYCHIATRIC NURSE, FULL TIME – 37.5 HOURS
WITHIN THE DUDLEY CHILD & ADOLESCENT MENTAL HEALTH SERVICE (CAMHS) BASED AT THE ELMS HEALTH CENTRE, SLADE ROAD, HALESOWEN, B63 2UR
We have an exciting opportunity within our Dudley CAMHS Service for two permanent Band 6 Community Psychiatric Nurses. We are looking for enthusiastic and committed individuals to join our team. We are an energetic and hardworking team working with children and young people from the age of 0-16. We are a fully integrated multi-disciplinary team comprising Clinical Psychologists, Psychotherapists, Family Therapists, Nurses, Occupational Therapists, Social Worker, Psychiatrists and Youth Offending Team. The team also takes a range of students on practice placements.
CAMHS professionals deal with a wide range of mental health problems. Many children and young people are troubled by emotional, behavioural and psychiatric problems. These can cause worry and distress both to themselves and to those who care for them. A large part of the CAMHS professionals’ work is to identify the problem, understand the causes and advise about what may help.
Our team has recently achieved Outstanding in the Caring domain from CQC, as a team we are very proud of this. We are seeking an individual who shares our commitment to caring.
The role of the Community Psychiatric Nurse will be to provide assessment and intervention to children and young people. You will need strong clinical decision making skills and be committed to improving the lives of those struggling with mental health.
As a Community Psychiatric Nurse in CAMHS you will be responsible for the care of a caseload of young people with various emotional and mental health needs. You will also undertake regular assessments of young people who are new to the service, and be responsible for making recommendations about their future care. You will have a ‘can do’ attitude and work collaboratively with colleagues in the team and partner agencies. You will be able to work creatively to meet the needs of young people and their families. You will have a sound understanding of the principles of risk assessment and management. In return, we will provide you with robust supervision, opportunities to attend peer group meetings, personal development and training opportunities.
You must have appropriate UK professional registration.
