Community Psychiatric Nurse (Inreach Nurse) - Band 6

Permanent Full time 37.5 hours per week

Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust is responsible for providing mental health services for people of all ages across the London Boroughs of Barnet, Enfield and Haringey, as well as providing some specialist services across the whole of North London and beyond.

Since January 2011, the Trust also provides adult and children’s community health services in Enfield, following the transfer of Enfield Community Services from NHS Enfield. Please note - Barnet, Enfield & Haringey Mental Health Trust will only accept on-line application forms.

North London Forensic Service is rated OUTSTANDING by the CQC and we have partly achieved this rating by recruiting outstanding staff and offering them unrivalled career and training opportunities.

We are currently recruiting for staff into our prison healthcare services based in west London within HMP Wormwood Scrubs. This a Category B local remand prison with an operational capacity of approximately 1300 spaces.

The mental health team within the prison is multidisciplinary in nature and consists of nurses, psychologists, occupational therapists and speech and language therapists and works with those prisoners with mental health needs. As part of this team we are looking to provide a mental health nurse to work with a designated caseload of men within the prison providing assessment, triage and brief interventions.

Although it would be beneficial, you do not need to have had previous experience in working in a prison setting as a thorough local induction and training package will be provided. What you will also need is a professional qualification in nursing and at least 1 years’ experience at a Band 5 level; most importantly is for you to have both the desire and ability to work compassionately with complex men who are often in acute distress. Excellent written and verbal communication skills, a calm disposition, resilience and the ability to negotiate and work in partnership with other agencies and the prison is also required.

Free use of gymnasium and staff subsidised restaurant are available on site for staff to use.
