The team embraces a recovery based philosophy which places the service user at the heart of the service, and promotes a way of care which is focused on the whole person in the context in which they live. You will be joining a friendly and supportive team where regular supervision and professional development is encouraged.

The organisation has a supportive and robust preceptorship scheme aimed at supporting newly-qualified nurses.
