Ready for the recognition and rewards you deserve?

We don’t just talk about putting employees first. We know that Priory wouldn’t exist without their combined energy, expertise and effort.  So we invest heavily in training, provide first-class support, promote collaborative teamwork and give everyone on our team the opportunities and resources to achieve their full potential.

Job Advert Location Description

Set in the leafy suburb of Edgbaston, close to Birmingham City centre, Priory Hospital Woodbourne is conveniently located for access to the West Midlands motorway network and with very good local public transport links. 
The hospital provides a diverse range of inpatient services, including acute and psychiatric intensive care, Child and Adolescent Mental Health, specialist Eating Disorder and private acute and addictions treatment programmes.  Our multi-disciplinary teams deliver personalised treatment programmes to our patients and have established an excellent reputation for providing the highest standards of care. 

Aspen Ward is a 10 bedded Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit for 18-25 year olds. We have 5 beds allocated to our Partnership with Forward Thinking Birmingham (FTB) and 5 beds which take referrals from all over the UK. Most of our referrals come directly from the community, either from Place of Safety, A&E or police custody. We also take referrals from other wards when service users may present as challenging. 

The primary function of the PICU is to work with young people whose risks may be greater than those on an acute ward, and therefore our team focus mainly on risk assessment and management. 

We work closely alongside young people, their families/carers and community teams to support recovery and we pride ourselves on always focussing on the “least restrictive principle”. We are a team that focusses on reflecting and learning from our experiences and we actively encourage service user involvement and choice. 

Aspen Ward aims to offer a positive experience for patients, despite the restrictions of the PICU environment. Our values are around positive engagement and activity, person centred care and positively supporting young people through crisis.
