Mental Health Nurse (RMN)
Closing Date: 15th October 2019
We are seeking a qualified RMN to take a lead role in the delivery of comprehensive and effective recovery to people who look to us for support at Cypress Hospital in Newton Abbot.
Cypress Hospital is a 14 bed mixed gender, short-stay, open unit which provides a nurse-led acute step-down service for people who are in, or recovering from a mental health crisis. Our service model is to step people down from an acute ward and provide recovery goal-based interventions in order to support them back into the community. We also take admissions from the community, providing the support needed to prevent an acute ward admission of people in crisis. We work closely with people to help them develop and achieve their own goals within a highly recovery focused multi-disciplinary environment.
We are looking for positive and professional nurses who are enthusiastic and highly motivated to ensure that people receive skilled recovery practice to an exceptional standard. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a truly innovative and progressive team and service.

- RMN qualification
- NMC registration
- Demonstrable effective leadership qualities
- Experience in providing individual and group clinical/therapy work
- A working knowledge of the Mental Health Act
- Experience of assessing complex health and wellbeing needs and developing individual care plans
- Full UK driving licence
What we can offer you:
- Salary from £26,900, dependent on experience
