ELFT (East London NHS Foundation Trust) is making a positive difference to thousands of people’s lives, providing support so that they can fulfil their potential and enjoy healthy lives.

The East London Mother and Baby Unit is a specialist service that aims to provide mental health care for mothers and support in the care of their infants. The mothers are either experiencing mental health problems antenatally or up to one year postnatally. Applicants for this position will need to be a qualified RMN with a willingness to work toward developing their understanding of this specialist field and of infant care and development whilst working within a multidisciplinary team. We provide a national service and interactions with other teams are vital so the applicant would need to possess excellent communication skills. The post holder will be expected to work on a roster system which covers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There is an expectation that the post holder will contribute to the wider unit at City and Hackney and may at times be rostered to work on other acute wards locally.

If you have at least 1 years post qualification acute inpatient experience, have completed your preceptorship and feel you are able to contribute to the work we do and the difference we make, we welcome you to apply. (Please note: candidates who do not meet these requirements will not be considered for the post).
