We are looking for a CAMHS practitioner, preferably with a nursing background to work in the National & Specialist Paediatric Liaison service based at Kings College Hospital. The work focuses on the relationship between physical health, emotional health and general well being. It also offers an emergency service to the hospital in response to mental health crises and self harm.  

As well as working with children and their families who attend the hospital, the role also involves working closely with the medical staff team including Consultant Paediatricians and specialist nursing staff. The work also involves working alongside other specialisms involved in the young persons care at the hospital as well as linking with community based services and other agencies as appropriate. We are a dynamic multi disciplinary team who are passionate about improving the lives of children with chronic health care needs and are hoping to attract someone who is committed to the interests of this particular client group. In particular we are looking for someone who can combine skills in working with families, with skills in assessing and responding to self harm. This is an exciting opportunity for anyone who wishes to develop their skills, experience and contribute to developing services in these areas.

We employ around 4,800 people across South London and other sites in the UK. It is a diverse team of talented individuals, spanning a wide range of specialities and benefiting from many world-leading healthcare experts. We deliver more than 14,000 training experiences each year for our staff, providing an extensive range of learning opportunities. Staff can benefit from exceptional professional development opportunities and we will work with you to build your career in mental health. In addition, our working relationship with King's Health Partners allows those working at the Trust to get involved in academic research.

We are committed to helping to develop the people that come to work with us. We know that the Trust can only be as good as the people who work here and we’ll invest in you to maximise that potential. That’s why we really welcome and value people so highly. In short, if you’ve got what it takes we’d be delighted for you to come and work with us.

The successful candidate will be asked to apply for an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
