Put your leadership skills to the test, managing nursing teams on ward shifts and helping to provide world class mental health services. You`ll also have lots of support to continue your professional development and training and to progress your career.
 
Heygate Ward is a 10 bedded PICU ward for men between the age of 18 and 65 years old. Our patients suffer from an acute mental illness, a relapse of an enduring mental illness or exacerbation of chronic mental illness who require relatively short-term intensive care. Due to their level of risk, patients would meet the criteria for detention under the Mental Health Act.
 
As a Clinical Nurse Leader you will promote high standards of care and demonstrate an ability to lead by example on a highly dynamic and fast paced ward. You will support the team to respond to challenging behaviour and work closely with the MDT to provide a therapeutic experience for our patients.
 
Why St Andrew`s Healthcare?
We`re a top 20 charity and the UK`s leading charity providing specialist NHS mental healthcare. Profits are re-invested into new services and new facilities, helping us to continue to do amazing work and transform mental healthcare.  Our care pathways are helping us to provide outstanding outcomes and will give you more opportunities to gain specialist experience.
 
The role of Clinical Nurse Leader
You`ll be the most senior nurse on the ward, maintaining a high profile and visible presence, whilst working alongside a multi-disciplinary team. You`ll lead the nursing shift team, driving the clinical model and contribute to improvements in practice, in conjunction with the Advanced Nurse Practitioner.
 
What you will need for this role?
Substantial experience of working in mental health.  Leadership, excellent communication and people management skills are also key, as you`ll be relied upon to keep your team happy and motivated.
You will also be part of our expert Clinical team, giving you plenty of exposure to teaching, mentoring and coaching and extensive opportunities for continuing professional development, training, and career progression.
