An exciting 6 month fixed term/secondment opportunity for a part-time (3 days a week) post to support the implementation of the ‘South London Mental Health Nurse Development Programme’ - an innovative collaboration across Oxleas Foundation Trust, South London and the Maudsley Foundation Trust and South West London and St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust. The role would be suitable for an experienced band 5 nurse with an interest in staff development or a band 6 nurse looking to develop their strategic skills.

The project working group consists of:

South West London and St Georges Mental Health NHS Trust
• Band 7 Project Development Nurse
• Band 6 a Deputy Project Development Nurse

South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust
• Band 7 Project Development Nurse
• Band 6 Deputy Project Development Nurse (the post for which we are recruiting)

Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust
• Band 7 Project Development Nurse
• Band 6 Deputy Project Development Nurse

The Health Education South London funded programme aims to significantly improve the recruitment, retention and development of the Mental Health workforce across South London and ultimately to improve the quality of care provided to our patients.

Supported by the Programmes lead and the Head of Nursing’s from each Trust the post holders will support programme delivery and the development of mental health practitioners across South London.

The programme will focus on the development and implementation of:
• a process of development for new band 4 roles in inpatient settings
• Band 5 development programmes for inpatient staff to support their development within their clinical areas or their transition to community care coordination roles
• career pathways to advance nurse practitioners (Band 7) in mental health in both community and inpatient settings with advanced leadership and clinical expertise

Reporting to a Programme Board, the post holder will work with a small team of staff including a Darzi fellow, and be able to draw upon the resources available across the three Trusts. They will be expected to work collaboratively with colleagues from all three Trusts, as well as with partner Higher Education Institutions, who will provide the academic elements of the programme.

Applicants would benefit from an understanding of assessing and meeting the development needs of mental health nurses and non-qualified workforce. This is an exciting opportunity for those who wish to develop their career and have a significant impact on staff retention and on the quality of care we provide for our patients across south London.

Interviews for the role will be held on 6th December between 9-1 at the Bishopsgate Education and Development Centre, on the Bethlem site South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.
