Job Description

We specialise in the assessment and treatment of adults who are acutely unwell.

This ranges from our support and signposting service, offering 24 hours of respite for someone away from their difficult circumstances, to working with the police on supporting people who arrive on section.

We are helping people with a wide range of complex conditions that come into our cross-county safe admission wards, cared for by a multidisciplinary team who bring all degrees of experience and expertise to the workplace.

This is working alongside extensive countywide crisis resolution and home treatment teams and liaison psychiatry services (based with colleagues in acute trust sites).

We pride ourselves on our brilliant people, with everyone from the consultant to the house keeping staff bringing something to the caring role, ensuring the patient and their loved ones are the centre of everything.

We have a state-of-the-art 10-bed psychiatric intensive care unit (PICU) in Dartford and we have a rolling programme of improvement projects, collaborations with friends of the trust with lived experience who are guiding on the design for new and refurbished spaces.

We are looking for dedicated Staff Nurses to join us and be part of our forward thinking, progressive team that invests in staff through continuous development and career progression.

You might be a newly qualified RMN/RNLD nurse, a RMN looking to return to work or an experienced nurse looking for a new challenge. In addition, we are always happy to talk to you about your flexible working needs.
