Greenvale is a 28 bedded Specialist Care Unit situated beside Streatham common. We work with people who have a primary diagnosis of dementia alongside other mental health and physical health conditions. We also provide palliative care and work closely with St Christopher’s and other specialists. We also work with researchers and have had notable visitors from around the world interested in the work we do particularly our Namaste work.
We are looking to recruit Band 5 staff with a passion for working with people with dementia. This is an excellent opportunity to develop your skills in both mental health and physical health care as a basis for your career in nursing.
