Job Description :

Thank you for your interest in a post at The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust. Every employee at the Trust strives to provide excellent patient experience every single time. We strive to be an excellent employer for every one of our employees from the day they apply for employment with us. We have four core values, developed by our staff, and these are at the heart of everything we do to enable us to deliver our ambitions of excellence. You can find out more about our vision and values from our videos and website, which you can access via this page.

These two Mental Health Navigator posts provide an exciting opportunity for a qualified and experienced mental health nurse, social worker, occupational therapist or psychologist to work within The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust. These new posts will have two key priorities:

  • To provide an appropriate, time limited assessment and signposting service to patients attending ED.

  • To provide a brief assessment, liaison and signposting service to patients on wards with primary or secondary (co-morbid) mental health needs.

The successful applicants will be based within the Trust Safeguarding Team but work closely with operational leads, trust psychology and liaison psychiatry services. We are looking for motivated, innovative and enthusiastic practitioners who want to work collaboratively as part of a team and who can deliver person-centred support and interventions to achieve the best outcomes for service users.

The post holder must be able to demonstrate a good understanding of the improving physical health care agenda for service users with mental health challenges to promote health and well-being and prevent illness. They will provide easily accessed evidence-based advice for clinical teams and support identification of the training needs of staff on mental health issues and participate in providing training on this, as required.

The post holder will also be expected to work as an autonomous practitioner although clinical support and supervision will be provided through the Trust Clinical Health Psychology Service. They will be based at Pinderfields Hospital site but work across the Trust in both adult and children’s services.

In return for your commitment the Trust offers a comprehensive induction and will support you in your development through staff appraisal, regular supervision and access to further training opportunities.

Please note these posts are fixed term to the end of March 2021 and are ideal for a secondment or short term opportunity to gain further experience in an acute NHS Hospital Trust in mental health.

Tier 2 Certificate of Sponsorship

Applications from job seekers who require current Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the current Resident Labour Market Test which will be in place until the end of December 2020. UK Visas and Immigration requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UK Visas and Immigration website.
