Are you a Registered Nurse? Do you really want to make a difference to patient care? Do you have an interest in the delivery and implementation of quality healthcare in a challenging and dynamic area?

We require enthusiastic, self-motivated Registered Nurse with Mental Health experience to join our service.

The post is subject to satisfactory references and an enhanced DBS check.

The people we support may require low secure, locked rehabilitation, open rehabilitation, residential step down or community support services.

Southleigh Community is a 25 bed community-based independent hospital that provides assertive rehabilitation for male and female service users with complex mental health needs. The hospital provides 19 single en-suite bedrooms and 6 semi-independent apartments, allowing us to provide a step down service and encourage independence.

At Southleigh community hospital we are keen to ensure that patients move through a pathway as seamlessly and appropriately as possible. Our semi- independent apartments allow for people in our locked rehabilitation services to step down into a less restrictive environment when the time is right, whilst at the same time allowing us to take positive risks knowing that we have access to all the multi-disciplinary team if required on the same site.

We also admit patients externally who may be stepping down from other inpatient settings.

The post holder will be expected to work on a rotational basis although flexible working can be considered.
