We are looking for motivated and enthusiastic Bank Staff Nurses who would like to work in the CAHMS unit at Cygnet Bury. Cygnet Hospital Bury provides four Tier 4 CAMHS PICU services and 10 general acute CAMHS beds.
Primrose, Blueberry, Buttercup and Mulberry wards all offer 8 PICU beds for males and females. Wizard House provides the Acute general beds. Both services offer individualised care for young people aged between 13 and 18 who are experiencing a mental health crisis or whose needs mean they cannot be supported in community settings. The wards focus on working with young people to prepare them for discharge back out of service and into their home area, whilst still in a robust and supportive environment. All wards defines the support and interventions a young person can expect throughout their time at the hospital including psychology programmes, occupational therapy input, educational support and community support.
There is a diverse educational programme in place, so that young people can continue their education at the same time as receiving treatment. Referrals are accepted from all over the UK, many of which are emergency admissions.
You will be required to assist the patients in activities of daily living, facilitate Section 17 leave and carry out regular observations, responsible for providing an excellent standard of care to all patients and enhancing their experience of admission to the hospital.
Bank staff are required to work for the first 6 months at the hospital at which they first applied and where they received induction training. After this time, they are able to work at other Cygnet units and will be paid at the rate offered by that unit.
For those who may wish to join our team permanently, the bank system is an excellent opportunity to showcase your talent and passion for quality and excellence and gain valuable work experience. You will work ad hoc shifts as staffing levels demand and although shift patterns are not guaranteed we regularly call upon our bank staff to supplement quality of care for our service users.
We also pay you for your training; you will receive gross payments of £250 for completing your PMVA training and a further £250 for your online training once you have completed 5 shifts.
Each hospital is committed to the development and well-being of all staff and provides regular supervision, on-going training and access to Cygnet-wide career opportunities. All employees are encouraged to identify their own learning and development needs linking them with the current and future needs of the hospital and each hospital has a generous continuing education budget together with flexible rotas to permit attendance at day release training schemes.
