At Turning Point, we support people across the UK with mental health issues. Making a real difference to their lives, you’ll provide strong clinical support as you help to deliver an exceptional service to the people who need it most. As a Mental Health Nurse, we’ll support you to develop your career at Birchwood – a service in a community setting in Oldham that provides rehabilitation, treatment and care for 16 residents with mental health needs and/or dual diagnosis.
Ultimately, our aim is to equip people with the skills, coping strategies, daily living skills and psychosocial interventions they need to live more independently in the community. So, if you’re an experienced qualified RMN, this is your chance to further strengthen our person–centred approach as part of a multi–disciplinary team. Achieving your own potential, you’ll do this by encouraging every individual to reach theirs too – whilst working towards their personal recovery.
Working within the recovery model for mental health, we’ll look to you to support a high quality person–centred nursing service. As a RMN, this will involve plenty of variety and a broad range of professional challenges – from taking part in clinical audits and acting as a named nurse for nominated service users, to participating in MDT reviews and the CPA process. Fast becoming a professional role model, your remit will extend to clinical supervision too, as you coach and mentor student nurses.
The role involves 24hr rotational shifts including evenings, weekends, waking nights and bank holidays.
Running health services on a not–for–profit basis, we invest every penny back into our care – and our people. So, if you’re ambitious and focused on mental health, progress a clinical career with real value.
