Due to continued expansion of the services, we provide CAMHS LDT currently have additional vacancies within our outpatient and Outreach services for

Band 6 RNLD (or RMN with significant LD experience) / Positive Behaviour Practitioners

We are committed to providing young people and their families with the right information and input to improve their quality of life and identify more appropriate ways of meeting needs to replace the behaviours of concern bringing them to us.

For this reason, we use person centred planning; functional assessments, quality of life measures and skills teaching to co-produce Positive Behaviour Support Plans with patients, families and carers. The ability to build rapport and adapt yourself to best support the individual families is key in these roles.

Work within both services will be varied with many opportunities to further develop your skills and knowledge in all areas of care for this complex and diverse patient group, including formal training within PBS if not already undertaken.

You will have in house support both planned and ad hoc at all times, including out of hours if required.

Due to the wide geographical area the team covers own transport or suitable alternative is essential. Reliance upon public transport is not suitable.

Work within our outpatient service is mainly 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday but flexibility to cover early mornings, evenings and weekends when required is essential in order to meet the needs of families.

Within our Outreach Service hours are worked on a shift pattern of early and late shifts (long days) over a 7 day rota, including bank holidays. At present weekends are worked on a pattern of 1:3.

Both services have on call duties also allocated on a rota basis.
