NHS AfC: Band 6

We’re a large NHS Mental Health Trust in South East England. We’re looking for people to help us provide high quality services for the patients, carers and local communities we serve.

We want patients and staff to recommend our organisation as a place where they would be happy for their friends and family to be treated. You can help us do this by bringing your skills, experience and commitment to Sussex Partnership.

Sussex Partnership Foundation Trust are recruiting to a 1.0 wte Band 6 ADHD CAMHS nurse. This is substantive position and will be part of the developing Neuro-developmental service in West Sussex. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a multi-disciplinary team.  The role will include assessments, physical health monitoring and ADHD reviews.  The main base will be in New Park House, CAMHS. North-West Sussex  CAMHS are a great team who work well together to support young people with mental health conditions as well as ADHD/ASC assessments. The team are based in the centre of Horsham opposite an independant cinema/theatre, close to shops and a local park and swimming pool.

This is a great opportunity to develop the West Sussex neuro-developmental pathways and services. We would welcome applications from individuals with previous experience working within similar services.

Do you want a career in a trust with a 2020 vision of achieving outstanding care and treatment you can be confident in?  With a vision that includes becoming the employer of choice?  Where our values guide how we do this?

As one of the largest providers of children and young people's mental health, our Care Delivery Service (CDS) provides care across Sussex and Hampshire.  Supported by our Clinical Academic Group (CAG) we work to put research, innovation and learning into practice.

You will be part of a strong multidisciplinary team, receiving high standards of supervision. You will join the local Psychology and Psychological Therapies services contributing to our innovation and commitment to ongoing service improvement and compassionate care.

 Our services build on our CYP-IAPT learning and 'deliver with and deliver well' and we have built the infrastructure to sustain this with our collaborative work with our service users who help shape our transformation with their lived experience.  Our psychology and intern  infrastructure support the meaningful use of the service wide outcome measures framework.

Our offer is for a career not just a job, in a team and a trust committed to delivering the best care possible to the community whilst being committed to the wellbeing of its staff - and endeavouring to show this by how we do, what we do  - that our staff are our greatest asset and that staff wellbeing is a key priority.
