jobs description

Are you an experienced mental health nurse looking for flexibility? This might be the job for you.

We are an enthusiastic and positive team, and we are looking for a Mental Health Nurse to work within the Older Adult Community in High Wycombe. We really enjoy the specialism of looking after Older Adults and providing individualised, person centred care.

This role carries an incentive premium of £3,500 which will be paid in instalments over an 18-month period. Please note that this scheme is not open to existing employees of Oxford Health and is subject to a claw back clause. Further information will be provided.

The South Buckinghamshire Older Adult Community Mental Health team look after people over 65yrs who are in need of mental health treatment. You will be someone with a real interest in older adults and a desire to learn and develop this specialist knowledge, even if you have not worked with Older Adults before. We need you to be caring and compassionate and have the patient... at the centre of what you do.

We have opportunities for both full time and part time registered Mental Health Nurses. We are happy to discuss potential flexible working arrangements.

Our hub is based at Saffron House in Easton, High Wycombe, which is the newly established mental health hub in South Bucks. We provide community-based treatments and are fortunate to work alongside our own dedicated Social Care Team. Our team provide focused interventions for the older adults of South Buckinghamshire.

Saffron House benefits from being at an accessible location, that is not only close to local bus and train stations but also the M40 motorway, with free staff parking on site.

This service operates 365 days per year and follows the principals of the Community Mental Health Framework. The core working hours are Monday to Friday, 9.00 - 17.00. Out of hours/duty support services are managed via a team rota. Staff will be expected to work on this rota which includes 9:00 till 17.00 at weekends.

We want you to be a confident practitioner, able to work with students and teach others and be able to work under pressure and have excellent mental health assessment skills. Good communication is essential and an interest in developing physical health assessments is encouraged.
