We are delighted to be advertising this unique opportunity for motivated and enthusiastic mental health nurses to join our community mental health team, covering the Newcastle-under-Lyme area of Staffordshire.

These are existing posts within our team, and the roles will involve working as a mental health nurse, within our multi-disciplinary team, alongside doctors, social workers, psychologists, support time recovery (STR) and health care support workers and our admin team. This is an exciting time for our team, and this new development is part of us working towards developing more effective therapy based pathways, with a focus on recovery for our service users. The successful applicant will be working alongside our current mental health nurses to develop these group and individual recovery focussed pathways. You will receive help and support from an extremely supportive and experienced team.  

The Newcastle Adult Community Mental Health Team operates from its main base on the Bradwell Hospital Site which serves an identified catchment area within Newcastle and surrounding areas. Our centre is staffed from 9am until 5pm Monday to Friday.

The community mental health teams exist to support clients with identified Mental Health conditions using the CPA process of care delivery.

Your role will involve you taking responsibility for a specific client group with nursing and mental health needs, using the CPA process to support this. This will involve you taking the role of care coordinator for selected individuals, where appropriate. You will assist clients through the Mental Health pathway on their journey to their recovery, visiting them in their own homes or other accommodation; so the ability to travel is essential. The role will require the delivery of a range of treatment interventions, care planning and risk managing, with the support of the multi-disciplinary team.

The community teams are embarking on a challenging journey of change & the appointed individual will need to be innovative, compassionate and motivated, have a passion to deliver individualised, person centred care and can make a positive contribution to service development. This is an opportunity to join our Community Mental Health Teams as we enter a time of modernisation and development of our services to meet the needs of local people. Support and interventions are delivered that are recovery focused and promote independence and resilience, and deliver high quality outcomes for service users and carers.

We welcome a visit or phone call if you would like to find out more or have any questions. Please contact team manager, Kerrie Parton for further details on 03007900237.
