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.

Are you a Mental Health Nurse seeking a new challenge? Are you dedicated to providing outstanding care for children, young people and their families in mental health crisis? If so this role could be for you.

We are currently recruiting a Band 6 Mental Health nurse to join our nursing team within the new Extended Crisis Service. This exciting new service is a pilot funded until March 2020, but there is a strong commitment that this service will be extended beyond that point. The team of skilled, committed and creative nurses work a range of shifts covering 11am to 11pm weekdays and 10am to 2.30pm on weekends and bank holidays. The team offers assessments to children and young people attending A & E in mental health crisis at the Homerton, Royal London and Newham Hospitals. The team also offers follow-up appointments in the community to ensure access to ongoing treatment and telephone advice. The team provides training and consultation to colleagues in partner agencies and is well supported by a Band 7 and Band 8a nurse management team, as well as close links with local CAMHS, acute hospital staff and Children’s Social Care. 

To be arranged with Team Manager, Ruth Woolhouse
