This is an exciting time for ELFT. Our vision is to make a positive difference to people's lives by improving quality of life for all we serve. Our values are: We Care, We Respect, We are Inclusive – so we are looking for people who live and breathe these qualities when supporting service users and carers, and in their relationships with colleagues in the Trust and our partner organisations.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, skilled and competent Mental Health Nurse with a specialist interest in the Cognitive impairment to work within our Diagnostic Memory Clinic.  
The service covers the whole of Tower Hamlets, which is a lively, vibrant and culturally diverse borough. The work of the team is varied, interesting and challenges you as a practitioner. 
The Tower Hamlets Memory Clinic provides a dynamic, innovative and responsive service for a population where Dementia diagnosis rates are increasing. The clinic provides high quality comprehensive assessments and diagnosis for people experiencing cognitive decline by working actively in partnership with service users, carers and relatives. 
This includes quality post-diagnostic support and intervention that promotes independence, social inclusion and maintains quality of life. 
The work of the team is varied and interesting and challenges you as a practitioner in your use of assessment skills with a caseload of people with decades of life experience behind them.
 
You will also be working closely with other teams, as well as with other statutory and voluntary agencies both within and outside the Borough of Tower Hamlets. 
 
You will have at least 12 months qualified experience as a Mental Health Nurse with a specialist interest in the care for older people and cognitive disorders. You will have an understanding of the issues that impact on, and arise from, cognitive decline and demonstrate clinical reasoning skills in line with evidence-based practice.  You will also be able to demonstrate empathy and communicate sensitively with compassion. 
The successful candidate will join a motivated, friendly and supportive multi-disciplinary team who continue to make a positive difference for individuals and families under our care. 
An informal visit to the team or a conversation with the recruiting manager is strongly advised.
