We have been working hard to prepare for the opening of our new Women's PICU and are now close to our opening date in November. Recruitment to the staff team has been going well and we are now looking for Band 5 Nurses/OTs to fill our remaining vacancies. We are offering this opportunity on a secondment basis recognising that some staff may want to see if PICU work is for you and others may want a short term experience to add to CVs.

This will be an invaluable learning opportunity. This secondment will be of interest to those who want to gain experience in the following areas: highly complex case work; psychologically informed clinical practice; specialist gender sensitive work; and complex psychiatric prescribing. An intensive, bespoke 2 week training programme begins on 23rd October for the new team and early release to the secondment will be supported at the discretion of the current line manager.

Our WPICU is building on our existing pathway of nationally recognised mental health services for women in our acute care pathway with the opening of a Women's Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit (WPICU). Our WPICU will be part of a care pathway including a Women's Treatment Ward and a Women's Crisis House.

Please submit your Expression of Interest (300 words) by 15th October 2017 and for further information on these opportunities with us contact Rick Bolton (WPICU Ward Manager).

Only those applicants who demonstrate clearly how they meet our person specification will be shortlisted for interview. If you have not been contacted within 4-6 weeks of the closing date please assume you have not been shortlisted for the next stage.

We reserve the right to close any vacancies from further submissions, when we have received sufficient applications from which to make a shortlist.
