We are here to care for people with mental and physical illness, helping them to recover and go on to lead full and productive lives. We aim to be the best organisation of our kind in the country.
We provide care and treatment for children, adults and older people living in the London boroughs of Ealing, Hammersmith & Fulham and Hounslow, delivering services in the community (at home, in GP surgeries, care homes), hospital, specialist clinics and forensic (secure) units.
Our physical healthcare services include intermediate care services in Hammersmith & Fulham as part of the Community Independence Service partnership.
Our national, specialist and forensic services include:
- Medium secure services on the St Bernard's Hospital site in Ealing
- Services for people with complex and severe personality disorder at the Cassel Hospital in Richmond
- High secure services at Broadmoor Hospital in Berkshire
Our 3400 staff are dedicated to improving lives, working with patients, service users, carers, families and partners across the communities we serve.
We are looking for an enthusiastic and skilled Community Mental Health Nurse to join our busy Hounslow Crisis Assessment and Treatment Team.
The Hounslow Crisis Assessment and Treatment Team is a well-established team within West London Mental Health Trust and operates as an multi-disciplinary team working together to provide a high quality service for people with severe and enduring mental health needs. The team actively works in partnership with service users, carers, the Local Authority and with other statutory services and local voluntary groups.
The successful candidates will be clinically confident in assessing mental health service users presenting in crisis, carrying out short term interventions and making independent decisions. You will thrive in a fast paced environment, often working under pressure. You will possess excellent assessment, communication skills and interpersonal skills. You will work well with others and enjoy multidisciplinary work whilst maintaining the highest standard in the quality of care.
As an applicant for this role, you are urged to demonstrate within your supporting statement a combination of evidence that reflects your competence to meet the job specification and provide examples of your good practice.
This post provides an excellent opportunity to enhance your practice and develop your nursing skills. In order to be considered for these posts - you will have already gained experience in mental health nursing within an acute setting (in-patient, crisis team) and have robust and sound clinical assessment and decision-making skills including the ability to priorities your workload whilst maintaining a degree of flexibility to accommodate competing demands of the service when they arise. You will have an up-to-date knowledge of national and local policies. Furthermore the ability to meet local Trust targets in relation to quick response times is essential.
