MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES FOR OLDER PEOPLE (MHSOP)

CENTRAL REFERRAL HUB/UNSCHEDULED CARE SERVICE

Do you enjoy fast-paced, varied work?

Would you like to be part of a dynamic, supportive team?

Due to the retirement of two of our nurses, we have vacancies within our team for Band 6 RMNs who have a passion to provide quality care to our patients. We welcome applicants for full-time or part-time hours.

Based at the Neville Centre at Leicester General Hospital, and currently a Monday to Friday 09:00 to 17:00 service, the team of Band 6 RMNs, supported by a Band 7 Service Lead and our admin staff, covers the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland area. Travel is minimized by the use of remote working where possible. As part of MHSOP community services our nurse-led team accesses medical support from the wider service.

Our team has a dual remit:

  • To triage referrals into MHSOP,

  • And to provide a timely response to address immediate risk. This major aspect of our service involves carrying out a thorough mental health assessment, and liaising with other health and social care professionals as required in order to meet the needs of our patients. The team works with patients with organic and functional illness, and our involvement is short-term. Each day is varied and at times challenging, but above all is extremely rewarding.

You will need to possess sound clinical skills and the ability to formulate collaborative care plans. A high standard of written and verbal communication is essential.

We are currently engaged with our colleagues within the Mental Health Directorate of Leicestershire Partnership Trust in our Step up to Great strategy, as we seek to develop and transform mental health services. You will be involved in these exciting new developments.

If this post is of interest and you would like to be part of our team, please take a look at the attached Job Description and Person Specification. If you require further information or wish to discuss the opportunity further, please contact:
