Approved Mental Health Professional (Grade 9)

Location Bath, Bath and North East Somerset, England
Salary £20.88 - £23.88 per hour
b&NES has a core AMHP service which runs on a duty system. We are a 9-5 service based in a psychiatric health setting but a Local Authority Service. Although a 9-5 service, there is a level of 'out of hours' work due to the system pressures which push MHA work past 5 p.m. We are looking for an agency AMHP to cover 1-2 months work whilst we are waiting for recruit permanently into vacancies. However, we can be flexible on this. Bath and North East Somerset is made up of city and rural communities and it is a beautiful area in which to work. Due to the rural nature of the patch there will be a requirement to drive in order to get around the area. We also share a Health Based Place of Safety between CCG areas and so travel required to assess people in this setting. The B&NES AMHP team is very supportive and has a good working relationship with system partners especially the mental health trust and social care. I would be more than happy to answer any further queries that would help inform a decision to express an interest.
