We aspire to work in true partnership with our patients. We provide support to enable our patients to reach their full potential, whilst working towards personal recovery goals. Ultimately our aim is to reintroduce and maintain daily living skills, coping strategies alongside the psycho-social interventions necessary to equip people to live more independently in the community.
We are now looking for a committed, experienced and enthusiastic Senior Nurse to join our team. There is a robust MDT in place including Nurses, support staff, OT aide and Art Therapist.

Reporting to the Clinical Lead, you will key-work individuals and develop care packages and risk management plans, with an emphasis on discharge planning. You will ensure a ‘recovery focused’ pathway is embedded in the daily routine. Working closely with the Clinical Lead you will ensure all aspects of Clinical Governance are adhered to ensuring the consistent provision of high quality person-centred Care in a Recovery focused independent rehabilitation hospital.
On a day–to–day basis you will lead the shift and supervise, guide and mentor staff, you will engage in all audits including, Clinical Audits, Health and Safety and SU involvement and participate regularly in MDT reviews.
You will be required to deputise in the Clinical Lead’s absence and take part in an ‘On–Call’ system (providing out of hours phone advice for the service).
The Ideal Candidate
You will have a strong knowledge and skill set of working with a patient group suffering from severe and enduring mental health problems, including dual-diagnosis and a strong knowledge of the Mental Health Act.
Excellent time management skills, communication and organisational skills are essential, as well as good IT knowledge and skills. Acting as a professional role model, you will receive supervision from the Clinical Lead, take part in clinical supervision and offer supervision and appraisal to a small number of staff at Pendlebury House.
You will be required to work 37 hours per week and take part in shift work and night duty on a rotational basis.
