CNWL is one of the largest trusts in the UK, caring for people with a wide range of physical and mental health needs. We provide healthcare to a third of London, Milton Keynes and parts of Kent, Surrey and Hampshire.

The Harrow West Community Mental Health team provides a range of comprehensive community-based services. The team provides the main support for individuals with severe and enduring mental health problems across the borough. Most of the clients will be on CPA with a significant number managed under Lead Professional Care for patients requiring less intensive input but requiring ongoing consultations and support.

The Harrow West Community Mental Health team is a multi-disciplinary team that provides health and social care under CPA for approximately 330 service users living in independent or semi-supported accommodation in Harrow who have severe and enduring mental illness and high degrees of co-morbidity and need. The team accepts referrals from the single point of access (SPA) service, in-patient service, early intervention team and community forensic team. The Harrow West CMHT is located at Bentley House 15-21 Headstone Drive, Harrow Wealdstone HA3 5QX.

We are looking for an individual who is innovative, enthusiastic and most essentially, able to work collaboratively with the team. This full time position would be excellent for someone wanting to broaden their experience of community psychiatry and develop their clinical skills in a supportive and challenging environment. The team is well established with good support from senior clinical and managerial colleagues.
