Are you a learning disability or mental health nurse with an interest in working with adults with a learning disability in their own home? 

The Intensive Support Team (IST) provides a community based assessment and treatment service for adults with learning disability living in Hertfordshire, who challenge services and have additional mental health needs.  IST works with service users in their own homes and our aim is to help prevent an unnecessary hospital admission by exploring all other alternatives with the service user and their carer’s and/or families.

We are looking to appoint a nurse to a Band 5-6 development post to join IST in West Hertfordshire. We have a full time, 37.5 hours a week over a 7 day rota, permanent position.

IST work within the Specialist Learning Disability Service and the nurses work  alongside the MDT including; Psychiatry, Psychologists, Occupational Therapists & Speech and Language Therapists.

You will receive in-house training for Positive Behaviour Support and will support individuals and their carers to develop and implement Positive Behaviour Support plans.

You will hold clinical caseload, and also joint case hold with the MDT. You will receive regular supervision with the opportunity to develop your knowledge & skills with CPD opportunities.
