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 their infants. The mothers are either experiencing mental health problems antenatally or up to one year postnatally and require direct support in ensuring care of the infant is upheld whilst supporting the mother through their own recovery. Applicants for this position will need to be a trained mental health nurse with experience of having worked within adult acute mental health settings. The post will involve very close working not only with mental health services but wider social care services and so requires an individual with dynamic and exceptional communication skills. The unit prides itself on being able to offer a varied multidisciplinary approach to care and as such the postholder will be responsible for ensuring this is reflected in the work that is undertaken. The unit is committed to ongoing development in practice and standards of care and would welcome applicants who are forward thinking and willing to make a difference.
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 will involve responsibility for carrying the Duty Senior Nurse Bleep for the unit on a weekly basis. The successful applicant will be supported in post by the Modern Matron through supervision and through engagement in team based reflection. If you feel you are able to contribute to the work we do and the difference we make, we welcome you to apply.
The unit is based within the City and Hackney Centre for Mental Health. Any successful applicant will also be expected to support the City and Hackney Centre for Mental Health in providing care and treatment and upholding the safety of both patients and staff within the unit.
You must have appropriate UK professional registration.
