3d ago

An exciting opportunity has arisen for first level Registered Nurses (Mental Health or Learning Disability) to join our innovative and dynamic nursing team here at The State Hospital.

Situated midway between Glasgow and Edinburgh, the hospital is the only high secure forensic mental healthcare facility in Scotland which has the dual responsibility of caring for a group of unwell, detained, patients whilst safeguarding them and the public from harm.

Driving license essential.

We are looking for conscientious individuals who are committed to delivering high quality nursing care to come and join our service.

As an integral member of the multidisciplinary team you will play a key role in ensuring that our patients receive the highest standards of person-centred care in an environment that balances care provision with managing risk.

As a forensic healthcare practitioner you must be able to work under pressure and demonstrate the ability to remain calm in challenging situations.

Team working is essential balanced with the ability to work autonomously and manage your own work load.

You should have excellent communication skills and show an ability to work as part of a multidisciplinary team relaying clinical decisions and exercising clinical judgement.

Whilst previous experience of forensic healthcare would be helpful this is not essential. The hospital offers excellent learning opportunities to support ongoing professional development.

  • We share the same core values as every other NHS Scotland health board : care and compassion; dignity and respect; openness, honesty and responsibility;
  • quality and teamwork, and our core values are central to service delivery

    The closing date for applications is midnight Friday 04 March 2022 .

    Please note that due to current restrictions in place for COVID-19, all interviews will be conducted via videoconferencing (Microsoft Teams).
