We have an opportunity for an appropriately qualified Mental Health Nurse to join an established and supportive CMHT based in Invergordon. You will work with your own caseload under direction and supervision from Band t Staff and the team manager. All aspects of the work will be underpinned by your theoretical knowledge and evidence base, along with demonstration of skills and qualities required to successfully work within the community.

The team provides a service to older adults experiencing a range of mental health problems. There is a variety of work covering both organic an functional illness. You will work within a MDT approach, with regular liaison within the team, with psychiatrists and with primary care.

You will be provided with the opportunity to develop skills and knowledge and at a time of change within the service this is an exciting opportunity to contribute to that change, including the recent development of a specific older adult directorate within mental health services. We are also working on implementation of the recently revised dementia strategy and there is ongoing work looking at the treatments available to older adults with functional mental health problems. There will be regular supervision and informal support on an ongoing basis.

Interviews for this post will be held on Friday 26th January.
