Advanced Practitioner - Acute Referral Centre

Job Description

We are seeking dedicated and enthusiastic Advanced Practitioners to join the Trust’s new Acute Referral Centre (ARC). The ARC will operate 24hrs a day, 7 days a week and is the Trust's central point of contact for all crisis referrals. All referrals are triaged in the ARC to deliver robust gatekeeping and to ensure that our service users are given the right response at the right time. Advanced Practitioners working within the ARC will undertake triage assessments and on occasions face to face assessments whilst balancing both clinical demands and supervisory responsibilities. You will be an experienced mental health professional (Nurse, OT or Social Worker) and will be available on a shift by shift basis to consult and take a lead in the decision making of more complex and/or high risk cases. You will have excellent clinical decision-making ability. Advanced Practitioners are expected to work a shift system during the hours of 8am to 10pm to ensure consistent senior clinician presence.
