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.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a suitably qualified Mental Health Nurse to join the Recovery Team which covers the Wigan and Leigh borough.

Nurses are valued members of the multi-disciplinary team which also includes Medics, Psychologists and Occupational Therapists. The Nurses offer CPA reviews and assessments, care planning, risk assessment, individual and group interventions and provide the role of Care Coordinator.
