Lincolnshire Partnership Foundation NHS Trust (LPFT) is an Improving Access to Psychological Therapies site (IAPT). The opportunity has arisen for two Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners based in Gainsborough. The Service provides evidence based interventions within a stepped care model, for the treatment of people with mild to moderate common mental health problems. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a major national initiative, which has fundamentally changed the way in which psychological treatments are provided.

Post holders will be expected to work at least one evening session a week and possibly Saturdays in the future.

The Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner will work as part of a multi-disciplinary team to provide, assessment and treatment of common mental health problems based on the NICE guidance. These include computerised cognitive behavioural therapy, psycho-educational groups and guided self-help; the majority of interventions will be based on a cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) approach. Interventions may be delivered as group work or individual work through telephone contact, computer messaging, email or face-to-face. Regular case management and clinical skills supervision will be provided by qualified supervisors. The service has a strong commitment towards Continuing Professional Development (CPD), staff wellbeing and providing quality services.

We are looking for a motivated individual who is qualified and hold the accreditation for the IAPT LI training course certificate in psychological therapies.

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.
