Our PICU supports and cares for some of the most vulnerable service users from our community and offers a highly challenging environment within a fast paced and diverse work setting.

PICU is an exciting service to be part of. we work within specialist multi-disciplinary team, delivering high quality, intensive care to patients experiencing acute mental illness. We want our nurses to learn and develop their skills, including working with and supporting clients with severe mental illness and widely varying, complex needs, risk assessment and risk management.

Adults in crisis are admitted to the ward and are supported by a large team of nurses, doctors, health care assistants, occupational therapists and psychiatrists. There is a wide remit for a nursing role within PICU which requires networking and collaborating with numerous internal and external stakeholders.
