Job Description

Providing quality, inspiring innovation and  delivering value is what we set out to achieve at Priory Healthcare. Enabling our patients with mental health difficulties to receive a truly integrated and holistic approach to their treatment, regardless of complexity or severity, thanks to the knowledge and expertise of our multidisciplinary clinical teams.

The Woodbourne Priory Hospital is a 56-bed acute psychiatric hospital for adults and adolescents, based in Edgbaston Birmingham, offering a wide range of care to our varied client base of inpatient, outpatient and day patients.

We are currently looking to recruit Healthcare Assistants to join our Acute and PICU units. The Acute unit will be caring for 18 - 25 year olds who have severe and critical needs.  Our aim will be to work quickly to assess their needs and give them the care they need to enable them to go back into the community.

The new PICU is a service for patients who have a severe mental illness and are in the acute phase of that illness. The service also treats patients who have a dual diagnosis and have a complex presentation.

Our PICU services specialise in the treatment of patients who cannot be managed in acute settings, transfers from other PICU units and the prison services. The service will excel in treating the most complex individuals with a person centred approach and comprehensive risk management.

We are looking for motivated and skilled people who are committed to putting the needs of our service users above all else, delivering the best possible results and changing the lives of those in our care. This fast paced, acute environment, will appeal to those who enjoy working in a challenging and rewarding setting.
