We are looking to appoint a senior nurse who has the ability to work in conjunction with other members of the management team, to contribute in the development and implementation of C-CATT providing a high quality service to meet the needs of children and young people in acute phases of mental illness, and their carers.

You as a C-CATT Clinical Specialist Nurse will undertake urgent assessments of children and young people, and their families, in crisis and where appropriate provide short term support as an alternative to admission.
