Values Based Screener

At Hertfordshire Partnership Foundation Trust we are looking for people to join us who share our values and those of the NHS. Before your application can be considered please take part on our online values questionnaire which you can find in the 'Further Links' section of this advert. When you have finished you will be sent a 'completion code' by email, which will be valid for 6 months and required to submit your application form (If you are experiencing problems please call 01707 253878).

The Role

We are looking for experienced clinicians, RMNs, RN's and Social Workers, who wish to join this forward thinking, dynamic and innovative team, who are committed to providing specialist, short term, support to young people experiencing a mental health crisis and their families.

This post is for a CAMHS Crisis, Assessment and Treatment Team (C-CATT) Clinician within HPFT. C-CATT is a multi-disciplinary community team providing flexible assessments and short-term, intensive support and interventions. We support children and adolescents under the age of 18 suffering with acute, moderate to severe and complex mental health problems living within Hertfordshire who are at risk of harm to themselves or others. Clinicians assess young people in the acute hospitals as well as in the community where appropriate.

Our clinicians provide crisis telephone line support, triage and assessment as well as face to face assessments, follow ups and brief interventions in the community. Most referrals currently come from the two A&E's in Hertfordshire although with our new crisis telephone line we are trying to prevent anyone attending A&E if they do not have a physical need to be there. The C-CATT service operates 24/7 and the shifts are organised on a 6 week rolling rota. This roll will involve day, evening, night and weekend working.

As well as a relevant professional qualification we are looking for people who are:
* Knowledge of Mental Health problems that affect young people
* An ability to work with Children and Young People in challenging situations.

A car driver is an essential element to the role (unless you have a disability as defined by the Equality Act 2010 which prevents you from driving)
