Post Details An exciting opportunity has arisen for first level Registered Nurses (Mental Health or Learning Disability) to join our innovative and dynamic nursing team here at The State Hospital.

We are looking for conscientious individuals who are committed to delivering high quality nursing care to come and join our service. Registered nurses who specialise in Mental Health or Learning Disability are invited to apply for this position. You will be an integral member of the multidisciplinary team and you will play a key role in ensuring that our patients receive the highest standards of person-centred care in an environment that balances care provision with managing risk.

As a forensic healthcare... practitioner, you must be able to work under pressure and demonstrate the ability to remain calm in challenging situations. Team working is essential balanced with the ability to work autonomously and manage your own work load.

You should have excellent communication skills and show an ability to work as part of a multidisciplinary team relaying clinical decisions and exercising clinical judgement.

Whilst previous experience of forensic healthcare would be helpful this is not essential. The hospital offers excellent learning opportunities to support ongoing professional development.

We share the same core values as every other NHS Scotland health board: care and compassion; dignity and respect; openness, honesty and responsibility; quality and teamwork, and our core values are central to service delivery.

An attractive work-life balance is supported by the successful candidate's shift pattern, which centres around a 4 days on and 2 days off shift pattern, with rotas being generated up to 12 weeks in advance. Applicants will also be rostered to work Night Duty (21000742), and work on average a 75-hour fortnight when on Night Duty.

Closing Date The closing date for applications is 11.59pm on Sunday 9 June 2024. For an informal discussion please contact Senior Charge Nurse, Hazel Crawford on 01555 842176 or Senior Charge Nurse, Gayle Clark 01555 842242.

If you have any queries or require assistance regarding the application form or recruitment process, please contact the HR Team on [email protected] to discuss your requirements.
• Starting from 1 April 2024, the working week for NHS Agenda for Change workers in Scotland will be reduced. Full-time hours will be reduced from 37.5 to 37 hours, and part-time staff will get a pro-rata reduction in their working hours without losing any earnings. Although the State Hospital will implement this change, it may not be possible to transition fully from 1 April. Therefore, there may be some areas in the organisation where implementation may take longer. If the department cannot safely accommodate the reduced hours from 1st April, you may be required to work 37.5 hours per week (pro rata for part-time staff) until the department can meet the requirements without impacting patient safety. Of course, you will be remunerated accordingly. The State Hospital is committed to fully implementing the 37-hour working week across all areas as soon as it is safe to do so.
