An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the vibrant, forward thinking Forensic Community Mental Health Team (FCMHT) which is part of the secure care services at the Rohallion Clinic, Murray Royal Hospital, Perth.

The FCMHT is based within Birnam which is situated within the grounds of Murray Royal Hospital and is linked with Rohallion Secure Care Clinic, which represents a unique setting for secure care in that both low and medium secure care facilities are co-located in a beautiful, semi-rural, elevated site within walking distance of Perth town centre. Our values are:

Care and compassion

Dignity and respect

Openness, honesty and responsibility

Quality and teamwork

Embedding these values in everything we do will help to make our vision a reality. In practice, we need to:

Demonstrate our values in the way we work and treat each other

Use our values to guide the decisions we take

Identify and deal with behaviours that dont live up to our expectations

Be responsible for the way we work and not just the work we do.

Our service is using the principles described within the NHS Scotland Values Based Recruitment Framework. In this regard candidates for this post should anticipate questions at interview relating to the core values mentioned above.

You must be registered on Sub-part 1: RN1 or RNA or Sub-part 2: RN2 of the NMC Register with a first degree or other qualification equivalent to level 9 of Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF). It is preferable that you have extensive experience at a Band 6 or above within a community mental health team and be able to demonstrate expert clinical and professional practice. You will be expected to demonstrate in-depth knowledge of current legislation pertaining to community care and have a qualification relevant to mental health. You should be able to demonstrate evidence of extensive professional development.
