About Barnet, Enfield & Haringey Mental Health Trust

BEH is a multiple award-winning, combined mental health and community Trust providing local, regional and national healthcare services.

In Enfield, we provide a range of services for young people, adults and older people. This includes a full range of adult community health services and some child health services.

The senior operational lead role is key in delivering the Trusts transformation and improvement plan for Community Services. We are developing a community service that responds proactively to the current and future needs of our local population.  One of the aims of our new model is to identify patients most likely to be at risk of hospital admission to remain as close to home as possible. As out of hospital lead you will work with others to reduce avoidable hospital admissions. As such you will ensure community beds are utilised appropriately and there is efficient, safe patient flow. You will ensure all our community services including rapid Intervention, rehab and enablement, and specialist services are delivering at the top of their license.

The successful candidate appointed to the role of Senior Out of Hospital Lead will work in partnership with the Managing Director and the divisions leadership team to ensure the effective and safe management of the division.

As a key member of the Enfield Community Services leadership team the successful applicant will be responsible for providing timely, efficient and effective operational service management for their service, ensuring that these services are responsive and innovative.

If you feel you have the skills and experience to deliver in this exciting role, as well as sharing the values of our Trust, then we would welcome your application.
