North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (formerly known as 5 Boroughs Partnership NHS Foundation Trust until 1st April 2017), provides physical health, mental health and learning disability services across the North West region. The Trust employs around 4000 staff across our sites and also has a Temporary Bank which offers the flexibility of working shifts around other commitments.
We are committed to providing safe, compassionate care and look to appoint people who are as passionate about patient care as we are.
Are you a Registered Learning Disability Nurse with a passion for delivering outstanding care that brings the 6 Cs (care, compassion, commitment, courage, communication and competence) to life? If so, we want to hear from you.
St Helens Community Learning Disability Team is currently looking to recruit a caring and committed Band 5 Learning Disability Nurse, based at Willis House in Whiston. This post requires a skilled clinician to work in a well-established multi-disciplinary team. The team works collaboratively with a number of agencies and providers working with adults with learning disabilities in their own homes and/or a variety of community based settings.
We are looking for an individual who will be able to manage their own caseload and has experience of working with people with learning disabilities, with a variety of health needs and conditions. The post also involves enabling and supporting people with learning disabilities to access mainstream health services.
Experience of working with people with a variety of additional needs and a knowledge of the Mental Capacity Act would be an advantage. Applicants would need to be RNLD qualified.
The applicant would need to be able to demonstrate good time management and organisational skills, the ability to work autonomously and as a member of a wider community multi-disciplinary team.
As this is a community post, the ability, means and willingness to travel between multiple sites in the course of performing duties is essential.
