Staff Nurse / Senior Staff Nurse
The Chimneys Healthcare Partnership is a newly established provider of inpatient and day treatment services for men and women aged 18+ who suffer from severe eating disorders (Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa) and associated mental health conditions. Our purpose designed, 12 bedroomed Clinic, The Chimneys, is located just three miles from the Suffolk market town of Bury St Edmunds and sits in over an acre of beautiful grounds with very good access to the A14 and other major road and rail links.
We are ‘inspired’ by a Recovery based model of care and treatment with a clear focus on a holistic and individualised approach. This is delivered by a multidisciplinary team who are skilled, experienced professionals. Our team includes psychiatry, clinical psychology, nursing (mental health/learning disability/physical care), occupational therapy, specialist day activities staff, and a practice nurse for physical healthcare.
We have exciting career opportunities for Registered Nurses to work as integral members of our multi-disciplinary team, supporting adult patients with eating disorders and mental health conditions. Registered nurses will be a critical component in the delivery of our model of care and your professionalism and values will ensure that our culture and practice support the development of safe spaces within which patients can challenge those issues which bind them to their eating disorder.
