Values Based Screener

At Hertfordshire Partnership Foundation Trust we are looking for people to join us who share our values and those of the NHS. Before your application can be considered please take part on our online values questionnaire, which you can find below. When you have finished you will be sent a 'completion code' by email, which will be valid for 6 months and required to submit your application form.

Do you want to be part of a new and developing specialist team? Do you have a passion for working with young people and delivering the very best clinical and individual recovery outcomes? This is the role for you!

This is an exciting new post in a newly established Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) team working across HPFT CAMHS. The team is in its early inception and therefore the post holder will have opportunity not only to work clinically with young people with complex mental health problems, but also to be part of the development of this specialist and innovative team.

There will be opportunity for the suitable candidate to attend specialist training with a national provider in DBT (as needed) and experience consultation from national DBT experts.

The DBT Team will offer a specialist evidence-based therapeutic approach for young people at high risk, to prevent crises and ensure that young people are in the least restrictive service for their need. The post is part of an exciting expansion of CAMHS specialist services within HPFT, supported by NHS England’s innovative ‘Testing New Care Models in tertiary mental health services’ programme (Wave 2). Our new model of care for Tertiary Services has been designed to transform local service provision in Hertfordshire by integrating the Tier 4 and Tier 3 CAMHS pathways, to ensure that young people across the county can access the services that meet their needs at the right time.
