Job Description

Our Client Essex Partnership NHS Trust based in Basildon, Essex as well as several other locations are looking for Band 5 Mental Health Nurses to support their Adult Inpatients Assessment Unit.

The Trust's Assessment Units work closely with Crisis Resolution Home Treatment Teams to offer service users an alternative to admission or to reduce length of stay for those who require admission.

It is a 24-hour dedicated inpatient unit. All patients who have been assessed in Accident and Emergency Departments that are considered in need of a further period of assessment will be referred to the assessment unit.

A full psychosocial assessment is carried out, and in most cases between 24 to 72 hours. The maximum stay at the Assessment Unit is five days. The Assessment looks at the best way of treating the person referred to the unit, either at home, through the new Crisis Resolution Home Treatment Teams or admission to a day unit or an appropriate admission to a ward.

All suitable candidates must have PMVA training.

This post is shift based and ad hoc covering early, late, long day and nights shifts.

Flexible working is available to suit your needs. If you are looking for extra shifts alongside your current job or looking for a change then please get in touch.
