Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust (AWP) is a significant provider of high quality mental health services across a core catchment area covering Bath and North East Somerset (B&NES), Bristol, North Somerset, South Gloucestershire, Swindon and Wiltshire. The Trust also provides specialist services for a wider catchment extending throughout the south west.
Our aim is to enable and empower people to reach their potential and to live fulfilling lives through providing recovery and reablement focused services that yield positive outcomes for our service users and their carers.
Specifically, The Trust provides services for people with mental health needs, with needs relating to drug or alcohol dependency and mental health services for people with learning disabilities. We also provide secure mental health services and work with the criminal justice system.
Increasingly AWP provides treatment and care in people's own homes and other community settings, reflecting the preferences of our service users. Our community services are supported by high quality inpatient services that provide short term assessment, treatment and care.
The North Somerset memory service was established to ensure that service users receive assessment, diagnosis, and support as early as possible, to enable people with dementia, their families and carers to live well with dementia and make decisions about their future.
The service offers people the opportunity to be assessed in clinic based appointments with the availability to support home assessments if required, and has close links with voluntary sector organisations to provide additional services post diagnosis.
We are looking for someone who is enthusiastic, knowledgeable and highly motivated with excellent organisational skills, to work with this specialist team.
If you are an experienced nurse with excellent clinical and communication skills with a background or good knowledge of dementia and a passion for working in the liaison and later life memory service please apply for this post.
You will receive regular supervision, access to professional development and work closely with the other community services and GP’s.
This is a permanent position open to Internal and External applicants.
