The AMHP team are part of the Access team and when not working in capacity as the frontline AMHP you will support colleagues in the wider access team in roles such as being the clinician in SPA, completing community visits with home treatment or spending time with Liaison at Diana, Princess of Wales hospital. This role is diverse and challenging at times because it offers an opportunity to support people when they are potentially at their most vulnerable.

When completing Assessments under MHA the AMHPs are representing the local authority as an independent practitioner; Navigo want to support all AMHPs to complete their role to the highest standard and as part of this all AMHPs support Navigo with Mental health law training, supervision and audit processes. The successful applicant will role model excellent standards of practice, knowledge and people skills. You will work closely with the other members of the Access team in offering the highest standards of care to the population we support.

A broad knowledge of mental health presentations and needs is essential. The successful applicant will be part of the substantive team who cover the 7 day week (working long days so not covering a 5 day working week) and also support the On Call rota.
