Job description: Service Care Solutions are looking for an experienced Mental Health Nurse (RMN) to work in a Triage Hub with Derbyshire Police.

The Mental health Triage Hub work with the police, EMAS, 111, Out of Hours GP service and Social Care to provide a triage service to those individuals who come into contact with the emergency service whilst presenting with a mental health crisis. The aim is to ensure that the patient receives the right care at the right time by the right person.

We are looking for experienced Band 6 Mental Health Nurses who are highly motivated individuals, and who have the ability to provide a quality service under pressure, often on their own and with a specific regard to the interface between the criminal justice system, police and all partners, including EMAS, DHU/111 and Social Care.

You will be expected to offer expedient and sound information to professionals referring into the service.
You will need triage skills/ assessment skills as you will be communicating and providing interventions to individuals who might otherwise have been transferred to ED or detained on a Section 136 or detained under the MHA.

The successful individual will also need to go through a police vetting process in addition to the usual DBS process which enables access to Police Head Quarters and police systems.
It is therefore advised that applicants have resided in the UK for at least the last 5 years.
Have no criminal convictions, and have a clean DBS within the last 12 months.

If you are interested, or for more information, please just call Martin Cookson on 01772 208962
