Due to a recent transformation of our Assessment and Liaison Services, we are in an exciting position to be able to offer a new and challenging opportunity to join us as a forward thinking, highly motivated, innovative, dedicated and experienced Registered Mental Health Nurse in our Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment (CRHT) Team in North Lincolnshire.

The CRHT is a multidisciplinary (MDT) team that provide 24/7 urgent clinical triage and advice via the crisis telephone line, as well as conducting urgent and emergency mental health assessments for people in crisis. In addition to this, the team also provide intensive home treatment to those patients admitted onto the caseload as an alternative to hospital admission. The CRHT also act as gatekeepers for all inpatient admissions, crisis house admissions and facilitate early discharge from the inpatient wards.

We know that service users recover quickly at home, and you will be an integral component for ensuring that this is done in a safe and specific way as an alternative to hospital admission, working alongside the wider MDT.

As a Band 6 Nurse in the CRHT, you will be responsible for providing urgent and emergency triage, advice and assessment for people in a mental health crisis. You will also be responsible for undertaking home treatment visits as indicated by the MDT. This will include the provision and delivery of highly skilled nursing care, including care planning and care delivery, biopsychosocial interventions, clinical risk assessment and management, and promoting recovery and inclusion. You will be required to work autonomously, understand capacity and flow of the service and the organisation, attend MDT meetings, undertake gatekeeping assessments for inpatient admissions and crisis house admissions, work collaborative with the crisis house to lead on care for admissions as a service and facilitate early discharge from the inpatient wards where clinically indicated. As a Band 6 Nurse in the CRHT, you will also provide clinical leadership and supervision for junior staff.

Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH) employ around 3700 talented colleagues who are very much appreciated, valued, and respected.

We have a wide portfolio which includes mental health, physical health, learning disability and drug and alcohol services.

We are passionate about enhancing the quality of our service and we work hard to attract and select the right colleagues for our organisation. Our goal is to employ those who share our passion for providing first class care while remaining committed to our vision and values.
