NEW BUSINESS – NEW SERVICES – NEW JOBS IN LINCOLNSHIRE!!

Lincolnshire is leading the way with mental health transformation projects

Do you want to be part of changing mental health for the future? Improving things for the next generation and influencing the future. We have a number of exciting new opportunities for clinical and non-clinical staff.

Excellent, well trained and motivated staff are what make the Trust as successful as we are.

We employ over 2200 staff in a variety of roles and are proud that in the past two years we have been rated by our own staff as one of the best mental health trusts in England; achieving the second best mental health trust nationally in 2018 staff survey. We firmly believe that the key to high quality patient care is a contented workforce and this is reflected in the Care Quality Commission rating us as ‘outstanding’ for well led and ‘good’ overall.

As a Trust we believe that having a diverse workforce and allowing people to be themselves is essential to good employment, we are openly supportive and encourage difference. We have three active staff network groups for Black Asian Minority Ethnics (BAME), Lesbian Gay Bi-Sexual Transgender (LGBT+) and staff with Mental and Physical Lived Experience (MAPLE). This has resulted in annual staff conferences and some great national accolades, such as, the Trust being included in the Top 100 organisations in the country within the Stonewall Index.


For this post we are offering all registered nurses an attractive employment package, including a welcome payment of £2,500 (paid in two instalments during year one) and £4,000 payment in lieu of relocation (to assist with commuting) or full relocation package** In addition there is a whole host of unique staff benefits and educational support as part of a nurse’s CPD.

To be successful in this role, we want to hear from Leaders who really want to ‘make a difference’, with the Trust values at the core of patient care and who have previous experience of working within acutes, or are seeking to develop a career within acute inpatient care.

The post holder should be able to demonstrate excellent leadership skills with the ability to be able to assess and prioritise clinical situations. The management of effective communication between medical and nursing staff both verbal and written is a key element of this role.

The successful candidate will be responsible for supporting the day to day management of the ward, monitoring and auditing ensuring the nursing team delivers high quality care to patients who access our service. In addition to this the candidate will be able to develop and create a culture that aspires to delivering best practice for individuals using our services and demonstrates effective communication and promotes a culture of transparency and equity.

Conolly Ward is the only male acute ward within the Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust which is AIMS accredited by the Royal College of Psychiatrists. The ward is for working age (18-65) men who are experiencing acute mental health difficulties.

Applications are invited from highly motivated and dynamic candidates with a “can do” attitude to deliver the Trusts Vision and Values and help to improve our patient experience within acute care services. This is an exciting and challenging role which will afford the successful candidate to work as part of a supportive team that is focused on delivering high standards of care through evidence based practice.

You will be joining a forward thinking Trust, where, within the last 12 months our CAMHS team was rated as ‘outstanding’ in a recent CQC Comprehensive Inspection, whilst the Trust was rated, as ‘good’ overall.
