CNWL NHS Foundation Trust offers a generous relocation package to successful candidates - subject to eligibility assessment
CNWL is developing a new Community Eating Disorders Service for Children and Young People. We are developing a service which is responsive to the needs of the under 17s and strengthens the transition experience to adult services, where that is necessary. We have the advantage that we already operate a CAMHS and Eating Disorders Service Directorate, and can build on our CAMHS and adult strengths and experience to make this work as an ageless service line.
In the first phase services will be provided at South Kensington & Chelsea Mental Health Centre, with a further spoke facility at Northwick Park Mental Health Unit.
We are looking for a band 7 Specialist Nurse CAMHS Eating Disorders to be part of an exciting new development within the Community Eating Disorders Service for Children and Young People. You will have a relevant professional qualification e.g. RMN, RCN as well as relevant experience of undertaking specialist assessments for children and young people with eating disorders.
The service offers comprehensive range of interventions to children and young people with an eating disorder.
You will assist the team in prioritising referrals by assessing the complexity and urgency of the cases and gathering comprehensive reports from referring agencies as necessary is a strong component of this post. You will have advanced assessment & clinical reasoning skills along with excellent communication both verbally and in writing.
You will work in conjunction with colleagues providing direct advice, intervention and support to children, young people and their families and also working collaboratively with professionals who are externally involved with these cases. This input will consist of specialist advice and planning with regard to the management of patients who present with a complex relationship with food.
Interview Date: 10th November 2016
