We are seeking an experienced Community Learning Disability nurse with proven clinical skills in working with adults with complex health needs, to work within our integrated, multi-disciplinary team.

The post holder will support the assessment and treatment of the young people attending Alexandra College as well as working within the Camden Learning Disabilities Service. The main approach for the college will be a ‘no limit’s’ approach to accessing education within a positive behavioural support structure.

Working autonomously and with your own complex caseload you will deliver specialist health care for adults who have a learning disability. You will also work with their support networks, fellow professionals and other providers. You will work proactively and creatively to assess and meet individual health needs with a focus on reducing health inequalities experienced by adults who have a learning disability. It is essential that you have a good knowledge and understanding of the wider impact of complex care needs on the service user, family and multidisciplinary team.

During the interview process you will be expected to provide evidence of your ability to work flexibly within a team of individuals, working collaboratively to the highest clinical standards by adhering to the policies, procedures and regulations which guide your practice.
