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 an innovative, forward thinking, young people’s crisis service?

Are you are dedicated and passionate clinician who wants to be part of defining the future of crisis intervention for young people in Hertfordshire?

Following additional investment into the service we are now developing a 24/7 crisis support which includes, community and hospital based assessments, therapeutic intervention packages, telephone crisis line, parent/carer support, psycho-education and prevention.

We are looking to appoint an experienced clinician who has the ability to provide strong leadership, in conjunction with other members of the C-CATT senior team. They will contribute to the development and implementation of a high quality service to meet the needs of children and young people experiencing a crisis.

This post-holder will work as one of three Clinical Nurse Specialists in the team, under the supervision of the Community CAMHS Manager (CCM) for C-CATT and the C-CATT  Clinical Nurse Lead.

When working in the hospitals, the post holder will be the lead CCATT clinician, responsible for the triage of referrals and allocation of cases to other clinicians in the team. You will be the main point of contact for professionals (internal and external) regarding young people under the care of CCATT in the hospital. With support from Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists you will provide case discussion and support to CCATT clinicians who undertake urgent assessments of children and young people, and their families, in crisis. You will ensure that a thorough assessment and risk formulation has been completed and that a robust safety and support plan has been created before allowing the young person to be discharged from the acute setting.

The post involves a varied shift pattern and some on call work may be required.

This is an exciting opportunity for a strong leader to further develop their skills in an area that is challenging but extremely rewarding.  If you feel you have the skills and experience we are looking for then we would welcome an application from you. 

In addition to the basic salary, this post may attract a High Cost Area Supplement of 5% of basic salary subject to a minimum payment of £1,066 and a maximum payment of £1,845 per annum (pro rata where applicable).
