Learning Disabilities Staff Nurse

NHS AfC: Band 5

C&I has worked closely with current service users and Trust staff to create a set of shared values that make sure people who use the Trust’s services get the best possible chance of a rapid recovery. These values are embedded in the campaign: Changing Lives – will help drive up the standards of care across the Trust. For people who use the C&I‘s services, these values meant that they can be assured that through their journey to recovery they will be guaranteed:

• To receive a warm welcome through their journey to recovery
• That their dignity will always be respected
• That their care will be founded on compassion and kindness
• To receive a positive approach to care as they journey towards recovery
• High Quality Care from a highly trained team of professionals
• That each individual will be part of the wider team in the journey to recovery – 
i.e. ‘no decision about you, without you’.

C&I staff are required to reflect these values throughout their service at the Trust both:
• for people who use the services of the Trust, AND
• within their immediate teams and across the wider business of C&I.

As an applicant for this role, you are urged to demonstrate within your supporting statement a combination of evidence that reflects your competence to meet the job specification and provide examples of how C&I values are an integral part of the way you have and will continue to deliver service.

The post holder will be a member of the Dunkley ward, which is an Acute and Learning Disability Unit providing care to a diverse patient population in the Camden and Islington areas with co-morbidity of learning disability and acute mental health needs.

The post holder will be a primary/associate nurse for a designated group of patients and will be responsible for the assessment of their needs and for the planning, implementing and evaluation of the care provided to meet those needs.

He/She will be an integral part of the multi disciplinary team and will liaise closely with other agencies both within and outside the ward/unit. As a primary/associate nurse the post holder will promote person centred care and ensure that all care plans reflect this approach.
