Have you ever wondered what it's like working on an Early Intervention Unit? 

Leo Unit currently has Band 5 vacancies so this could be your chance to find out!

Leo Unit based at Lambeth Hospital provides in-patient care to 10 males and 8 females experiencing their first episode of psychosis.

The ward team delivers care to individuals aged from 18-35 with a focus on psychosocial evidence based interventions, considered commencement of medication and collaborative engagement with patients and carers in treatment decisions.

The multi professional team provides a thorough assessment for those where diagnosis is unclear across all types of psychoses. Occupational therapists together with nursing staff provide a mix of activity and recovery focused groups.

With a newly appointed Consultant and current recruitment underway for a new ward manager, this is an exciting time to join the team.

The ward has successfully been awarded a Maudsley charity grant to fund additional psychology sessions across ward and community to ensure a smooth transition for discharged patients.

The ward takes patients from across the 4 SLaM boroughs and works closely with all 4 Community Early Intervention teams.  The ward is managed within the Lambeth Operational Unit which has the advantage of being part of a new and innovative Alliance Partnership which affords greater opportunity for creative and flexible working.
