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.

An exciting and innovative opportunity has arisen in Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust Memory Assessment services operating in West Sussex. We are looking for a Non-Medical Nurse Prescriber to support the further development of our MSNAP accredited multidisciplinary team, working collaboratively with other agencies to ensure the best outcomes for people using the service.

The successful candidate will be responsible and accountable for the timely assessment of patients referred with undiagnosed and diagnosed conditions. The post holder will work across community and clinic settings within the Worthing locality, completing specialist mental health assessments and developing pharmacological treatment plans as an autonomous practitioner in accordance with national guidance and Trust policy.

We want our patients to receive the best possible care, so we are looking for people with the right attitude and values; someone who is passionate about providing high quality, person centered care to people living with dementia and their family,friends and Carers; someone who is caring, compassionate and a good communicator.

As a Non- Medical Nurse Prescriber in our service you will work as an integral part of our multi-disciplinary team, where you will have support through an allocated Consultant Psychiatrist as your clinical supervisor and training opportunities to enable your own continued professional development and revalidation.
