Job description: Service Care Solutions are currently looking to recruit a Band 5 Registered Mental Health Nurse within a Female Adult Mental Health Ward in the North Manchester area.

The post offers full-time guaranteed day shifts Monday - Sunday (37.5) for an initial duration of 3 months with likely extension as the ward regularly requires shift cover. The position is Band 5 paying £19-£27p/hr (Ltd).

The ward requires: 24 hour skilled and medical care to stabilise either sudden onset or reoccurring mental health conditions therefore there may be an opportunity of working weekends and/or night shifts.

The multi-disciplinary teams (MDT) on each ward consist of experienced team of medical staff, nurses and occupational therapists who specialise in caring for adults of working age (16-65) and also work closely with the patients family to gain as full a picture as possible of the issues that led to admission.

The service offers careful assessment and treatment for a wide range of mental health needs focusing on each person's individual needs and concerns.

The aim is to keep the length of admission as short, but also as therapeutic as possible so that the individual can return home with the relevant package of care. With this in mind the ward staff also works closely with community teams to ensure a seamless admission and discharge, enabling each person to return to their optimum health avoiding the anxiety surrounding hospital admission.

The successful candidate must:
Be a Qualified Mental Health Nurse currently registered with the NMC.
Be comfortable and confident in administering medications as part of the treatment of patients.
Have the ability to work effectively as part of a MDT (Multi-Disciplinary Team) of healthcare professionals.
Holds previous post qualifying experience in the same or similar field.
