Band 6 Mental Health Facilitator

Do you feel passionately about Mental health and ensuring that people have equal access to physical health care to improve their quality of life?

We are looking for committed and experienced qualified staff to join our wonderful established team of mental health professionals to deliver excellent care within LLR.

As a Mental Health Facilitator, you will work within primary care to assess and support the mental and physical health care for people who are on the SMI register. This will involve working in collaboration with general practices and primary care colleagues, as well as secondary care services to improve outcomes and people’s quality of life in line with the NHS 10 year implementation plan.

We are committed within LPT to ensure better outcomes for this client group for their mental and physical well-being, as this group are known to have a reduced life span and to be less likely to access physical health support.

You should be experienced and able to work autonomously when required whist still working closely as a team of professionals. Support and supervision will be provided and we promote a positive collaborative leadership style.
