CAMHS Nurse - Enhanced Support Unit - Band 6
Base: HMYOI Feltham
Full Time - 37.5 hours per week
We are delighted to announce a unique and exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced CAMHS nurse practitioner to join the clinical team in the Enhanced Support Unit (ESU) at HMYOI Feltham
The Enhanced Support Unit (ESU) is an innovative, 12-bedded residential service, run in collaboration with a multi-disciplinary team, designed to provide assessment, consultation and treatment for young people (aged 15-18) whose psychological and behavioural management presents significant challenges.
The ESU utilises a trauma-informed approach which aims to work with young people in custody who present with a range of complex needs including histories of abuse and trauma, developmental disorders, challenging behaviour, mental illness, social, learning and communication difficulties.
This approach underpins the SECURE STAIRS initiative which is being rolled out across the children and young people’s secure estate.
The post holder will contribute to the ongoing assessment and treatment of the children on the ESU, particularly management of their health needs.
As part of a varied MDT, you will work closely with colleagues to ensure that care plans are collaborative and recovery focused. You will have an excellent understanding of risk assessment and management within complex settings and be able to work collaboratively with young people and other’s involved in their care to minimise risk. You will also work jointly with other disciplines to deliver therapeutic interventions on the unit and assist in delivering training on relevant areas of health promotion and child development.
The post-holder will need to be able to work closely alongside colleagues from different disciplines to ensure that the needs of young people within the service are met in a responsive manner. This will also involve liaising closely with the mental health in-reach team and primary care health services within the establishment, as well as ensuring continuity of care into the community.
You will need to be a visible and positive presence within the service and wider prison establishment and will be responsive and supportive to the needs of each young person using the service.
We are looking for an individual with clinical experience in CAHMS and who has experience working with challenging and complex presentations. The ideal candidate will have the ability to work flexibly and have a child-centred approach.
