Job Details

Job overview

Are you a dynamic, confident and motivated mental health practitioner?

Do you have excellent communication skills?

Do you want to be supported and empowered to work as a highly skilled and autonomous mental health practitioner, delivering excellent care to the patients under your care?

If your answers to these questions are yes, then we want to speak to you!

The Brighton and Hove Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment Team (CRHTT) is a well-established team within the urgent care pathway, offering an important and less restrictive alternative to hospital admission for adults experiencing acute mental ill-health. We work intensively with individuals to proactively treat them in their own home and pride ourselves in the wide-range of interventions that we offer.

Work within our team is fast-paced, busy and, at times challenging. However, you will be supported by means of regular supervision, reflective practice, team mindfulness sessions and, arguably most importantly the benefits of working within a close and cohesive team. We take a clear team approach to risk management, meaning that you will not carry an individual clinical caseload.

As a band 6 mental health practitioner you will be key to thoroughly and holistically assessing the needs of the patients under our care, actively participating in the planning and delivery of care and treatment which, wherever possible will have been agreed in collaboration with our patients.

Main duties of the job

The successful candidate will be an autonomous practitioner who will carry continuing responsibility for a defined caseload of service users by undertaking the following duties:
- To undertake assessments of individuals and their families in the designated care group with complex health presentations, including those service users presenting with higher levels of risk. To develop alongside the service user their care plan.
- To offer specialist assessments and advice where required.
- To assess and manage on going risks as identified during the assessment, ensuring that this is done in collaboration with the service user and carers. -- To regularly review risk factors and make changes to the management of them as necessary.

- To contribute to the maintenance and development of the Trust nursing strategy.
- To ensure that clinical practice is evidence based and consistent with relevant NICE guidelines and Trust policies and procedures.
- To provide supervision of junior staff and trainees where appropriate.

Working for our organisation

Sussex Partnership Trust is committed to the professional development of staff and has excellent CPD opportunities. CRHTT team members to date have taken courses in Family Intervention, Grief and Bereavement Counselling, Independent Prescribing and Advanced Clinical Practice.

The Trust supports and actively encourages flexible working for all employees. We offer options and you are encouraged to ask the recruiting manager what is possible within this role. Within the team there is the opportunity to work long days and/or early and late shifts across Monday to Sunday. If appointed, you will have the opportunity to apply for a flexible working request from the first day of your employment.

This post offers the Trust's £4000 Incentive for band 5-7 Nurses (pro rata applies and subject to terms and conditions).
