Here at LPFT, our people lie at the heart of everything we do.

We employ around 2,700 staff who are pivotal in our success.

Do you want to join a Trust rated by our own staff as one of the best mental health trusts in England, located in a county heralded as a fantastic place to live and work?

We provide mental health, learning disability and autism services to a local population of over 755,000 across 45 sites, as well as specialist services for children and young people.

We are leading the way with mental health transformation projects. Multi-million-pound schemes to transform patient environments and radically redesign community services are currently underway, as part of our commitment to reshaping the future of mental healthcare.

We believe the key to high quality patient care is a contented workforce. This is reflected in the Care Quality Commission rating us as ‘outstanding’ for well led and ‘good’ overall, and 75% of our staff recommending us as a place to work.

We offer options for flexible working and provide development pathways and opportunities. We have a proud partnership with the University of Lincoln and the Lincoln Medical School, which has expanded our academic offerings to nurture talent across the Trust.

We are committed to ensuring our workforce is diverse at all levels. We are currently under-represented particularly at senior leadership level, so we welcome applications from women, people with disabilities, people from black and minority ethnic backgrounds, and those from the LGBT communities.

We support and celebrate diversity. We have active staff network groups for Black Asian Minority Ethnics (BAME), Lesbian Gay Bi-Sexual Transgender (LGBT+), staff with Mental and Physical Lived Experience (MAPLE) and our dedicated groups for men and women. We are a Silver Standard Employer with ENEI, were in the top 100 organisations in the county within the Stonewall Index (in 2019), and have been a finalist for the Health Service Journal (HSJ) Mental Health Trust of the Year Award two years in a row.

An opportunity has arisen for an experienced mental health practitioner to undertake the role of Team coordinator in our older persons CMHT, based at Skegness or Boston.

The team offers an all age memory assessment service alongside assessment and treatment of older persons with severe and enduring mental health conditions.

We are looking for a candidate who has a passion for supporting our older age patients/ memory patients and has a sound understanding of the need to provide holistic care for this cohort of patients, who are often experiencing a variety of age-related co-morbidities.

The post holder will be required to manage a team providing care to patients in the Skegness and Boston area. Experience in managing a team previously or evidence of working towards a management and leadership role is desirable.

The post holder will be required to understand and analyse data to ensure that the service is being run to its optimum, with a focus on providing assessment and treatment as per our pathways and timelines. We are working towards using a mixture of digital and traditional methods of interacting with our patient group, therefore a commitment to supporting a team to work innovatively is vital in this role.

We ensure that the division undertakes a collaborative approach to working, with ward managers, home treatment team managers and community managers working as a team to provide a joined-up approach for the benefit of the patients in our care.

As a Trust we are part of the mental Health transformation pilot, and we are committed to system working with our wider colleagues to ensure that the patient is placed at the centre of the care we provide, therefore in this role you will be expected to work closely with these system partners using a personalised bespoke approach for individual patient care.
