Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust

350 Euston Road, London
£36,481 - £44,044 pa inc

CNWL (Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust) has almost 7,000 staff providing integrated healthcare to a third of London's population, Milton Keynes and areas beyond. We involve service users, carers, the public, staff and partner organisations in the way that we are run.

Our catchment area spans diverse communities, with over 100 first languages spoken. It contains areas of great affluence as well as areas of much deprivation. We are committed to providing services that meet the needs of the people who use them, and we actively encourage involvement from local people who can help make a difference. We’re proud of our diversity and we continue to undertake new initiatives to advance equality for LGBT+, BME and people with disabilities to promote good relations and understanding between our staff.

We are recognised locally, nationally and internationally for providing high quality, innovative healthcare. We aim to employ only the best people, and our experts are frequently called upon to contribute to national health strategy and policy, and many models of our care have been adapted for use in other countries.

We offer a generous relocation package (subject to eligibility assessment) and flexible working options, including bank assignments for most roles. See attached Staff Reward and Wellbeing Handbook detailing our benefits, discounts and wellbeing intiatives for staff.

Become part of our team. We care for you as much as you care for others.

Do you have an interest in safety and would you like to improve the experience of people who use our services?

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a dynamic Mental Health or Learning Disability Nurse to join the CNWL Safety Team as a Safe Practice Clinical Tutor for the Therapeutic Management and Prevention of Violence and Aggression.

We are one of only a few Trusts’ in the country that employ full time tutors who are experts by way of experience. We are incredibly proud of this and are looking for someone who will embrace this model and work collaboratively to improve the experience of people who use our services.

Working as part of a recovery focused team that delivers both training and expert advice to clinicians, you will play a central role in our ambition to end violence across our services. Violence reduction is quality priority for CNWL and we have set ourselves an ambitious target to reduce incidents of violence over the next three years. Violence not only affects the well- being of our staff, it also has a significant impact on the experience of people who use our services.

As part of your role, you will not only deliver training but also help shape the content and way in which this is done. You will need to have excellent communication skills and be able to inspire people to do things differently. You will be a key player in the work we do to implement our Violence Reduction strategy and will use your clinical experience to influence and support change.

Ideally you will have experience of delivering TMVA training but this is not essential as full tutor training will be available via the General Services Association if required. The Trust has a track record of developing its staff and with access to our Quality Improvement training program there will be further opportunities for ongoing professional development.

We are looking for a person who will not only talk about our values of compassion, respect, empowerment and partnerships but will live these in all that they do.

If you’ve read this advert and think that this is the job for you, we’d love to hear from you. Candidates are encouraged to contact us to have a chat about the role or to arrange a visit.
