Mental Health Nurse Band 6 – Memory Service

Mental Health Services for Older People (MHSOP)

12 Months Fixed Term Contract

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a Band 6 RMN to join the Memory service on a 12-month fixed term contract. The successful candidate can be based at either the Evington/Neville Centres at Leicester General Hospital or the Bennion Centre at Glenfield Hospital.

This is an exciting opportunity for enthusiastic, skilled, and competent mental health nurses who have an interest in the care of older adults. The post holder will be responsible for carrying out specialist mental health assessments for individuals with memory impairment, imparting diagnosis and commencing treatment where appropriate.

The service operates within out-patient clinic settings, care homes and clients’ own homes across Leicester, Leicestershire, and Rutland. The successful candidates will join an established team of Band 6 Memory Service Nurses, specialist Memory Service Psychiatrists and dedicated admin staff. You will demonstrate flexibility and commitment to high standards of patient care. In addition, also demonstrate good assessment and communications skills and the ability to work sensitively both autonomously and as part of a team.

We are looking for highly motivated and skilled RMNs registered with the NMC. Possession of a Non-Medical Prescribing (NMP) qualification is desirable but not essential. The team has close partnerships with the wider MHSOP community, Social Services, and the voluntary sector to ensure the patient experience is maximised.

We have a strong commitment to supervisory training and professional development and the post holders will receive full support and supervision to enable the assessment, delivery of diagnosis and treatment options.

A full UK driving licence and vehicle for business use is required for this post.
