Senior Staff Nurse (RMN) - Devon - £32K - CAMHS!

A small, independent hospital in Torquay is seeking an experienced RMN to join their team on a permanent, full-time basis, and I am keen to speak to individuals who are ready for a new challenge in and around Torquay.

The hospital treats those aged 12 - 18 who suffer with long-standing, self-destructive mental health conditions, such as PTSD, psychosis, personality disorder, self-harm, ADHD etc., and eating disorders. It also provides PICU services to those with severe mental illnesses and therefore detained under the Mental Health Act, and care is delivered using a person-centred approach, rather than a standardised programme of care. A team of highly-skilled and experienced healthcare staff work 24/7 to ensure that these plans are effectively contributing towards their rehabilitation and recovery.

As Senior Staff Nurse, you will be responsible for the motivation and leadership of the nursing team, as well as monitoring the development of new and existing staff. Working closely with the MDT, you will create care plans using a person-centred approach, and regularly review patient progress against their requirements. Medication administration and management will also be key, and you will put the needs of vulnerable patients at the forefront of your practice. Risk assessment and management is also a major responsibility that you will hold, always protecting the interests of service users.

The Requirements

  • Must be a Registered Mental Health Nurse with valid NMC registration/pin number
  • CAMHS/PICU experience is essential
  • At least 1 years' worth experience in supervising a healthcare team

  • Company discount scheme (high street, leisure etc.)
  • Comprehensive, in-depth induction and training/CPD programme
  • Company contributory pension scheme
  • Generous annual leave allowance (inclusive of bank holidays)
  • Nurses Support Forum
