We have exciting opportunities for experienced nurses to join us in delivering high quality community mental health care within the North West of Hertfordshire. Our services cover the localities of St. Albans and Dacorum. The area is well served with transport links to historic Hertfordshire and its glorious countryside as well as into London and beyond.

We have a vacancy in our multi-disciplinary Community Mental Health Team based in Dacorum serving the needs of people within these diverse localities.

We are seeking enthusiastic, compassionate nurses who hold a strong belief in recovery for people with severe and enduring mental health problems. Our Community Mental Health Nurses hold a caseload and undertake the role of care coordinator for those with varied complex mental health and social care needs.

You will also provide assessment and specific interventions to meet the needs of service users, their carers and families. It is expected that you will be a flexible practitioner who enjoys new challenges in meeting the developing needs of the service and our service users.

An excellent understanding of the issues people with mental health needs may experience is essential for this post as is a good understanding of Care Programme Approach, Care Management and Safeguarding. You will carry out interventions to a standard that ensures safe and effective care and complies with the NMC Code.

At HPFT our staff are our most important resource and we offer:
• A thorough induction to your role and team
• Regular, good quality supervision
• Access to Lead Nurse for your area promoting professional development
• A range of developmental opportunities to support you to grow in your profession and your practice
