We are seeking a dynamic, highly motivated Band 8A Advanced Nurse Practitioner with an interest in Neurodevelopmental conditions, with a particular specialist interest in ADHD.

Kirklees CAMHS are currently in the process of reviewing and redesigning their service offer for the Neurodevelopmental pathway. You will play a key role in the development of ADHD services with a commitment to ensuring the delivery of a high-quality service.

You will work as part of a multi-disciplinary team involved in the assessment and diagnosis of suspected Neurodevelopmental conditions. You will use your advanced clinical skills and knowledge to explore appropriate treatment and care options where a diagnosis of ADHD has been given.

The role will involve the development of clinical practice to meet the needs of young people with ADHD, undertake research and audit, lead service developments and support close partnerships with others including young people and their families, provider services and professional education providers.

This is a Clinical Specialist Band 8a post, which will require a level of experience and confidence to lead on this exciting development.
