Band 4 Registered Nursing Associates

A new opportunity has arisen for permanent Band 4 Registered Nursing Associates to join the Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment Team (CRHT) within the Urgent Care and Access Pathway. We are in the process of making exciting changes to the way we work in line with our ‘Step up to Great’ strategy, and welcome applications from Registered Nursing Associates with a desire to support people with an acute mental illness.

The CRHT is a well-established multi-disciplinary team, consisting of Consultant Psychiatrists, Nurses, Social Workers, Occupational Therapists, and Acute Recovery Workers. The team provides face to face assessments for service users referred via the Central Access Point, various crisis teams across the country, and local Community Mental Health teams, and provides an intensive home treatment service for individuals as an alternative to hospital admission.

The role will involve dealing with and supporting highly distressed individuals. The successful applicants will be supported to work independently under the leadership of registered mental health practitioners, providing and monitoring the care for people experiencing an acute mental health crisis. Integral to this role is the ability to communicate effectively, with sensitivity and compassion and to work as an autonomous practitioner undertaking therapeutic assessment of patients, some of whom may have complex and diverse conditions.

This service operates 365 days a year over a 24-hour rotation providing cover day and night. Staff will be expected to work shift patterns which include regular nights.

For further information please contact CRHT Team Leaders: Rachel Preston, email, Tel: 07717 483539 or Artee Edgerton, email:, Tel: 07770 734956.

We are committed to providing the best care that we can to our patients. Some roles involve a Maths and English assessment. Where this is so, details will be shared with you in the recruitment process.

Details of our benefits, leadership behaviours and other important information about applying and working for us are contained in the documents linked to our advert.

It is a statutory requirement for roles that involve work in care homes that staff are up to date with their Covid vaccination status to be able to work in that environment, unless the person has a valid medical exemption. Where a role requires this, they will need to demonstrate that they meet this requirement during the recruitment process.

For areas where our teams work to staffing rosters, these are set in advance at a team level and you will join an established roster. Your rostered shifts will be confirmed to you when arranging your start date.

We will consider requests to work alternative hours or vary working patterns in line with our flexible working policy.

To make the most of your application, we may consider appointable applicants for similar vacancies in different locations where this is appropriate and meets our mutual requirements.

For all substantive roles the appointment of new staff (excluding medical staff) is subject to a 6 month probationary period (see Probation Policy).

We aim to develop a workforce that reflects our community. We actively implement equal opportunities in employment and service delivery and seek people who share our commitment. We strongly encourage applications from all sections of the community, particularly from underrepresented groups.

All jobs will require permission to work in the UK.

For all jobs the cost of any DBS disclosure required will be met by the individual. This will be deducted from salary once started.

Applicants ‘at risk’ within the local NHS who meet essential criteria will have preference for interview over other candidates who apply for posts.
