Are you looking for a new challenge? We have two exciting opportunities for Mental Health Practitioners to join our team as a Crisis Practitioner and a Community Practitioner. These are permanent full time posts in the Poole Community CAMHS team.

This is an exciting time to join Dorset Healthcare and be part of the development of CAMHS across the county. If you are an experienced clinician and would like to influence these developments whilst delivering direct clinical work to children, young people and families then we want to hear from you.

As a Crisis Practitioner you will be responsible for managing crisis cases, providing duty cover, providing short term crisis interventions, working closely with clinicians including the Consultant Psychiatrist and undertaking DSH assessments.

As a Community Practitioner you will hold a clinical caseload, undertaking appropriate mental health assessments of children and young people referred to CAMHS and provide a range of appropriate, evidence based clinical interventions informed by assessment. 

Our teams offer a range of individual, family, group and pharmacological interventions depending on the needs of the child, young person and family/carers. The Trust is also part of the Children and Young People’s Improving Access to Psychological Therapies Programme (IAPT).

There is an expectation that you will work closely across the multi-agency networks, have excellent communication skills and an ability to build effective multi-agency relationships.

If you are interested in moving to Dorset we also offer a generous relocation package of up to £5,000.  For further details on relocation expenses please email
