Job Advert Location Description

The Priory Hospital Preston is part of the Priory Group, Europe’s leading provider of specialist treatment in mental health.

The hospital currently has residential facilities for 38 inpatients.

The Hospital provides Adult inpatient care across 2 Acute wards and 1 Eating Disorder ward. 

Job Advert Role Description

Are you looking to progress in your Nursing career by developing your clinical leadership skills rather than leaving the ward and going into management?  This is a newly developed role, unique to Priory, which will give you that chance. We are looking for highly confident and experienced Nurses to be the clinical care and quality leaders within their ward.

Lead Nurses will be integral to upholding a high level of patient care and clinical expertise across the team. You will;

•           Have oversight of the clinical and care needs of all patients, supporting your wider MDT and nurses in working with patients, their families, community teams to meet the individual needs of each person

•           Stay abreast of national guidance and best practice, lead by example and provide guidance, and support in the development and education of your team (e.g. RMNs and HCAs)

•           Focus on proactive clinical risk assessments, nursing assessments, the development of clinical models, quality improvement measures, least restriction interventions and medication management

What we are looking for;

•           Registered Mental Health or Learning Disability Nurses (RMN or RNLD) on a relevant part of the NMC register, with or willing to complete specialist training in a relevant clinical skill such as DBT/CBT or NMP qualification

•           At least 3 years’ experience working within multidisciplinary teams within relevant clinical settings

•           A clinical leader who is confident working across organisational boundaries, and is experienced in leading  on service development projects

•           An exceptional communicator who tailors your approach according to individual strengths and needs, and is adept at working with colleagues across different disciplines, and seniority and skill levels
