This is an exciting opportunity for a Registered Mental Health Nurse with significant experience to gain skills in management and leadership on Waddon Ward. 

Waddon Ward, based at River House, Bethlem Royal Hospital, is a 15 bed male medium secure unit.  It is one of only three specialist units in the country providing assessment and treatment for men with a diagnosis of personality disorder and history of offending.

It is closely linked to the Forensic Intensive Psychological Treatment Service (FIPTS) Community and Residential Teams, as well as other SLaM Offender Personality Disorder services in prison and probation. Through a variety of psychological, psychosocial and occupational interventions, patients can successfully progress from custody, through Waddon Ward and, where appropriate, successful reintegration into the community. 

All patients engage in the Violence Reduction Programme while other parts of their treatment is tailored to their individual need and delivered by the multi professional team on Waddon Ward.

You will receive the training, support and supervision required for the role.
