Band 5 Nurse Practitioner - Wiltshire

Band 5

Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust (AWP) provides inpatient and community-based mental health care for people living in Bath and North East Somerset (B&NES), Bristol, North Somerset, South Gloucestershire, Swindon and Wiltshire. We also provide specialist services extending throughout the south west.

We employ over 4,000 dedicated members of staff who deliver services from more than 90 locations, working in approximately 150 teams across a geographical region of 2,200 miles, for a population of approximately 1.8million people.

We are passionate about promoting good mental health and wellbeing. We strive to use the expertise and resources within our organisation, and through our partnerships, to deliver high quality services that are safe and focused on people's recovery. Our staff are pivotal in everything we do and we are committed to involving them fully in the development of the Trust and our services.


The WEST Wiltshire community mental health team is looking to create a band 5 post within the team. We are looking for a staff member who is committed to good clinical care and who wishes to learn and develop new skills within the team.

You must have good communication skills and be willing to work independently with the support from your colleagues and the multi-disciplinary team. We are willing to look at newly qualified staff and have experience of preceptorship and developing band 5 within the team. Training will be given to work with the trust administrative systems. Knowledge of the CPA process would be an advantage although not essential, as training will be given.

The focus of the team is to work within the recovery model. You will receive regular supervision and have support from your clinical supervisor as well as the senior practitioner in the team. We cover a wide geographical area and actively promote remote working to reduce travelling times.
