The Crisis Response Service in East London is looking for Band 4 Associate Mental Health Practitioners to join our Mental Health Crisis Service. The hours of work will be predominantly night duty working.

The Mental Health Crisis Service will be a key component of the overall Care Pathway meeting the demands of the Ten-Year Plan in providing Crisis Response by 2021. Band 4 Practitioners employed into the Crisis Service will be a part of an exciting and developing service aimed at supporting our most vulnerable patients and their families in the least restrictive setting possible by supporting the mental health assessments, including risk assessments, and a variety of brief interventions as directed by a clinician.

We require practitioners who are confident with working at fast-pace and in supporting the qualified mental health practitioner in assessing and managing risk in the least restrictive way for people in crisis in the community setting. Practitioners will possess skills in assessing mental health assessment and in monitoring physical health vital signs with a proven ability to signpost service users towards relevant services and organisations.
We are seeking practitioners to join us in developing the crisis pathway further and to join

existing friendly and supportive services with strong leadership and direction. Our work is interesting and varied with plenty of opportunities to learn new skills

The role is predominantly based alongside the Home Treatment Team at Mile End Hospital.
We would welcome practitioners who are keen to develop or further enhance their skills in a variety of areas and to help shape this exciting and developing service.
