If you are employed before the 1st April you will automatically transfer across to BSW CCG on the 1st April 2020.


Are you looking for a rewarding new role working in a dynamic, motivated Mental Health (MH), Learning Disability (LD), Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) Specialist Placements and Section 117 (S117) team with the opportunity to make a real difference to the quality of care that individuals receive?

You will be a Registered Nurse (General, LD or MH), Allied Health Professional (AHP) or Registered Social Worker (SW) with comprehensive post qualification experience.

We are especially interested in hearing from candidates who wish to maintain patient contact whilst also having a key role in promoting the quality and efficacy of services provided for Wiltshire residents.

In conjunction with the Clinical Lead the post holder will develop and maintain an understanding and overview of individually commissioned Adult MH, LD, ABI placements and Section 117 Aftercare.

  • Our Specialist Placements Service is aligned to our Continuing Healthcare (CHC) department and also has close links with Quality and Safeguarding teams and includes regular joint working with colleagues from Wiltshire Council and other agencies.

The successful candidate should be able to identify positive opportunities for change and to inspire colleagues and other partner agencies to deliver best practice within specialist placements.

You will need to be reflective, motivated and confident in your practice and an effective communicator both verbally and in writing.

The role will entail regular travel reviewing the quality and efficacy of client placements both in Wiltshire and further afield and therefore the ability to do this is essential.

For an informal discussion or visit please contact Justin Riley, Clinical Lead for Specialist Placements, 117, LD and ABI on 01380 733865
