Looking for a career in crisis intervention?
Are you looking for a new challenge? We are seeking talented Registered Mental Health Nurses, Occupational Therapists and Social Workers to develop our Multi-Disciplinary Teams within crisis services across Ealing, Hammersmith & Fulham and Hounslow. This is a unique and exciting time to join a rapidly expanding and developing crisis service, helping to implement a new clinical model that puts the patient at the very centre of how we work 24/4 – but we need you to help us achieve our vision.

How are we doing?
In December 2018 the CQC increased our Crisis services’ rating to ‘Good’ and the Trust has an explicit ambition to reach ‘Outstanding’. As part of this vision a significant amount of work is being undertaken to transform services, in particular alternative to hospital admissions, implementing best practice models across the health and social care system.

These plans are aligned to the aims set out in the NHS Long Term Plan as well as local priorities set out by the Crisis Care Concordat.

To fund this transformation WLT has successfully bid for increased recurrent funding to enhance crisis services in three key areas:

•             Increasing crisis staffing provision towards high fidelity to the core model
•             Increased alternative crisis provision including a safe haven, step-up services, a crisis café and support networks
•             Increased psychiatric provision for older people

You will receive great support including individual and peer supervision plus regular reflective practice opportunities.

What’s in it for me?
We are passionate about staff development and we also offer significant training opportunities to our staff (including DBT and ACT), as well as specific career pathways for moving up through the staffing grades, and believe that WLT is a great trust for staff looking to advance in their careers.

We are here to care for people with mental and physical illness, helping them to recover and go on to lead full and productive lives. We aim to be the best organisation of our kind in the country.

We offer a generous relocation package of up to £8,000 for some positions (including nurses) for new employees who are moving 40 miles or more.

We are holding a recruitment day on 18th December 2019 so keep the date in your diary!
