This ward supports and cares for some of the most vulnerable service users from our community and is a highly challenging environment within a fast paced and diverse work setting. This is an exciting service to be part of, which works within specialist multi-disciplinary team, delivering high quality, intensive care to patients experiencing acute illness. We want to recruit nurses and support them to learn and develop their skills, including working with female patients with severe psychiatric illness, complex needs, risk assessment and risk management.

We are looking for highly motivated, enthusiastic, and passionate, band 5, Mental Health and Learning Disability Nurses to join our experienced and cohesive team. We pride ourselves on delivering high quality, evidence-based individualised care. The emphasis is on providing a therapeutic environment, allowing individuals to recover in a safe and supportive environment.
