An exciting opportunity has arisen in the Barnet Memory Service for a nurse to work as a key member of the multidisciplinary team. The team consists of psychiatry, mental health nursing, Admiral nursing, occupational therapy, clinical psychology, assistant psychology and social work. This dynamic and friendly team is based alongside the Older People’s Community Mental Health Team. The service is accredited through the Memory Service National Accreditation Programme (MSNAP) and all members of the team contribute to ensure that these standards are maintained and further developed.
You will be involved in assessing patients with memory difficulties, using standardised assessments and following them up after a period on medication. You will help to facilitate groups in the form of Cognitive Stimulation Therapy and Carers Support. Alternative ways of delivering these are being explored/put into practice, given the current restrictions as a result of COVID 19. You will be required to carry out administrative tasks related to clinical care, which will include keeping accurate and up-to-date records and the collection and analysis of data.
You will need to be a registered mental health nurse interested in working with people and families living with dementia and a commitment to practising in a client centred way.
You will be supported by managers and clinicians in the team and will receive regular supervision. The appraisal process will ensure professional development through a wide range of opportunities within and external to the service.
This is an exciting opportunity for a nurse looking to further develop their skills in this specialism.
You must have appropriate UK professional registration.
