Crisis & Emergency Care Directorate
Team - The Decisions Unit (DU)

Clinical Team Manager

Salary: Band 7- £37,570 - £43,772 pa (dependent on experience)

Location: The Decisions Unit - Crisis Hub, Longley Centre

Hours: 37.5 hours

Post Ref: 457-19-082-QN

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a dynamic, skilled, and motivated individual to manage and lead the newly developed Decisions Unit (DU).

Alongside the 136 place of safety the DU forms part of the wider Crisis Hub, comprising the Out Of Hours team, Single Point of Access (SPA) and the citywide AMHP service. These services integrate and work together to provide 24/7 access and management of effective, safe and high quality crisis care.

The focus of the DU is to work closely with the Psychiatric Liaison service, the acute mental health inpatient wards and varying community services in order to support and maintain patient flow throughout the system. The service offers a safe and therapeutic environment to aid assessment for those whose crisis situation may resolve quickly or for those who need further review of their needs.
As the service continues to evolve the Decisions Unit will assume responsible for the management and operation of the 136 Health Based Place of Safety which is located within the Longley Centre. The post holder will be pivotal to supporting and leading this development (along with the Senior Operational Manager) and ensuring that this transition is coordinated, clinically safe, and efficiently organised.

You will need to be a Registered Mental Health Nurse with experience of leading and managing individuals and/or teams. You should be a confident, competent and person centred leader with a high level of clinical skills and knowledge of crisis care and of the standards that support care delivery. You will need to possess a positive attitude towards caring for the service user population, be able to motivate and inspire others and have a desire to contribute to the on-going development and improvement of services.

The post holder will need to be flexible as it is expected that the role will provide some clinical leadership and management support outside of core hours.

Our values are fundamental to ensuring people are at the heart of everything we do, our values are:
  • Respect: We listen to other, valuing their views and contributions
  • Compassion: We show empathy and kindness to others so they feel supported, understood and safe
  • Partnership: We engage with others on the basis of equality and collaboration
  • Accountability: We are open and transparent, acting with honesty and integrity, accepting responsibility for outcomes
  • Fairness: We ensure equal access to opportunity, support and services
  • Ambition: We are committed to making a difference and helping to fulfil aspirations and hopes of our service users.
