RMN - Garrow House
We are looking for dedicated, passionate and skilled nurses to join our established and experienced team at Garrow House in York. Our service is a 12 bed NHS England commissioned Tier 4 Personality Disorder service offering support to women, primarily from Yorkshire and the Humber, but in some cases nationally.
We offer a specialist service with the aim of providing a step down service from more secure settings, or in some cases to support women who have had experienced repeated inpatient admissions, in order to lead a life outside of hospital.
Our team consists of nurses, support workers, a social worker, occupational therapist, service user involvement worker, clinical psychologist, and consultant psychiatrist. Together we provide the resources that enable people to build upon their recovery and achieve their goals. We work collaboratively with community mental and physical health services to ensure people have the best chance of success.
We aspire to work in true partnership with our service users and encourage everyone to reach their full potential, whilst working towards personal recovery goals. Ultimately our aim is to reintroduce and maintain daily living skills alongside psycho-social interventions necessary to equip people to live more independently in the community with confidence.
Working alongside a full and varied multi-disciplinary team consisting of consultant psychiatrists, doctors, mental health nurses, art therapists, occupational therapists, psychologists, support workers and project workers, you will develop therapeutic relationships with service users, and help them the to develop appropriate coping strategies and skills for independent living. Garrow House is a unique environment that gets great results for its service users, and has a friendly, caring and inclusive team without the need for control and restraint procedures or rapid tranquilisation.
The Ideal Candidate
If you are someone who understands the importance of recovery and are passionate about seeing people achieve their best, then we want to hear from you. We need you to be a qualified nurse (or due to qualify in the next 6 months) with an understanding of recovery models/approaches and a good understanding of mental health issues and the way in which they are managed (including knowledge of the mental health act, mental capacity act and care program approach).
We are a 24 hour service and as such, we are looking for a RMN to play a key role within the multi-disciplinary team. Your role will involve working 37 hours per week including night shifts (which are self-rostered and very flexible).
In return for your hard work, dedication and commitment, we can offer the opportunity to grow, learn and develop as a practitioner in an environment that is focused on recovery and collaborative MDT working.
We will accept applications from newly qualified Nurses - salary negotiable.
