Clinical Nurse Specialist Development Post

Job Description

This post is offered for experienced Mental Health Nurses, to work as a Band 6 against an agreed development plan to develop competencies and skills within the Eating Disorders Service.

We have a number of exciting clinical opportunities immediately available for interested professionals to work within a very established and newly expanding community Surrey-wide Specialist Child and Adolescent Eating Disorders Service. The service currently operates between Mondays – Friday (9-5) but from April 1st we will be expected to extend our provision to some out of hour’s delivery (8-8 during the week and some Saturday mornings).

Ideally you should have experience of working with families and young people in some clinical capacity. Initial emphasis will be on delivering NICE concordant treatments, rapid intervention and focus on shortening of tier 4 admissions as well as reductions in overall tier 4 usages. The service is also expected to expand over the next 2-3 years and develop an early intervention and binge eating disorder pathway and there will be multiple opportunities to be part of this development and service delivery which will embrace all of the new NHS England Access and Waiting Times Standards guidance. We welcome applications from professionals who are looking to develop their eating disorder career.

You will be joining a friendly and thriving community based Surrey-wide child and adolescent eating disorders service comprising of a Service Manager/Art Psychotherapist, Consultant Psychiatrists, Nurses, Dietitians, Psychologists and Family Therapists, Assistant Psychologist, trainees and students.

We hope to be operating in the future from other venues and embracing some mobile ways of working. We will be looking to deliver some home and intensive treatments as an integral part of the evidenced based package of community care. Your role may therefore require you to travel.

Please note that all salaries shown are based on whole time of 375 hours per week for non-medical roles and 40 hours per week for medical roles, part time roles are pro-rated accordingly.
