Bedfordshire Wellbeing Service (IAPT)

Band 6 Gateway Worker (RMN or other equivalent Core / Allied Health profession) - 6 months fixed term or secondment opportunity

Bedfordshire Wellbeing Service (BWS) is an expanding IAPT service. We consistently achieve excellent recovery and reliable improvement rates, due to our focus on delivering flexible packages of care, designed to meet patient needs.

We are looking for a RMH or other equivalent Core / Allied Health profession with Mental Health experience to assist the single point of entry into BWS in ensuring that new referrals into the service are suitably risk assessed and when not suitable are referred to appropriate agencies. You will also be expected to provide support to clinicians with making appropriate referrals to secondary care mental health services and safeguarding teams. You will play a key role in enhancing interagency relationships and interface with these services.

East London NHS Foundation Trust also provides IAPT services in Newham, Tower Hamlets and Richmond. The four services work together on joint projects, sharing good practice and opportunities for training.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a team that is moving into a new phase of development and expansion. Your ideas and creativity would be welcome in contributing to the delivery of an innovative service, which meets the needs of the local diverse community.

The successful candidate will receive on-going supervision, professional development and will be part of a compassionate and collective team.
