We are looking to recruit a number of driven and passionate mental health nurses to work in the newly developed Centralised Place of Safety Service at the Maudsley Hospital.

The Centralised Place of Safety service is a purpose built, specifically designed unit which facilitate all Section 136 admissions for the Trust. Due to open this autumn you will be joining a dedicated multi-disciplinary team specialised in the assessment and management of persons experiencing mental health crisis.

The Centralised Place of Safety has also been chosen as the pilot area for the new London wide NHS England Place of Safety specification and pathway. As such we have been involved in the formulation of and have been able to build the service around this transformational guidance.

The nursing team will consist of a Ward Manager, 6 Clinical Charge Nurses, 12 Staff Nurses and 12 Clinical Support Workers. There will be opportunities for close working with other agencies including those from social services, CAMHS and the general medical setting (A&E).

We welcome applicants who are interested in establishing a new service which is currently the only one of its kind in the country. This will be an opportunity to contribute to the development of a gold standard national model for the provision of crisis care.

From the wards inception the team will benefit from a comprehensive training package designed to support the development of highly specialised and skilled Place of Safety practitioners. Apply now to benefit fully from this significant training and development investment.

It’s important that you have an understanding of multidisciplinary services and the challenges that face people with mental health problems. We want to hire staff that are passionate about mental health, who believe in our recovery model and who will act as advocates for the reduction of stigma in our community. You must have an excellent understanding of safeguarding and how to work within professional boundaries. Roles at SLaM are challenging, stimulating and diverse. We believe that we can offer you something different from other Trusts – if you are interested in this unique opportunity apply now.

If successful at shortlisting stage you will be invited to an assessment on the Friday, 8th December 2017 at the ORTUS learning and events centre.

**Please note that if you do not state the month and year that you have completed your Nursing qualification you will not be invited to the assessment.**
