We are a 19 bedded adult acute mental health ward and work closely with the other inpatient wards on the hospital site, especially the Female PICU.
There are lots of learning opportunities to develop new skills in working with service users from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures, who are experiencing an acute episode of mental health problems.
The job is varied and if you are motivated to work alongside some very unique and interesting service users, then please apply.
You will also have the opportunity to attend further training in numerous areas of physical health care applicable to the post, for exampleTrauma Awareness, Personality disorder, Dual Diagnosis, Learning Disability as well as developing links with Women’s services in Bristol.
You will gain a wealth of knowledge from a very experienced nursing and multidisciplinary team
The team is very supportive and you will receive regular supervision with a registered nurse, as well as peer supervision with a fortnightly psychologist HCA group.
You will be expected to work a rotational shift pattern, to ensure 24hrs safe cover for the ward including weekends and nights.
The early shift is 07 : 00hrs-15 : 00hrs, late shift is 13 : 30hrs-21 : 30hrs, night shift is 21 : 30hrs- 07 : 30hrs.
