At Priory Healthcare we're at the forefront of our field, with an international reputation for delivering clinical excellence. Across the UK's largest network of mental health hospitals and clinics we are dedicated to making a real and lasting difference to patients with extraordinarily complex disorders.
The severity of cases means we are looking for Registered Mental Health Nurses who can thrive in an often-demanding environment. It will be challenging, and at times it can feel frustrating and dispiriting. But when your patients turn the corner, when you see that sign of progress, that's when you know all the effort was worth it. That's when you know you have the most extraordinary job.
The Woodbourne Priory Hospital is a 57-bed acute psychiatric hospital for adults and adolescents, based in Edgbaston Birmingham, offering a wide range of care to our varied client base of inpatient, outpatient and day patients.
We are looking for RMNs to work on our 8 bedded Eating Disorders Ward (EDU).

You will be a key member of our multi-disciplinary teams, adopting a pro-active and therapeutic approach to care management with a supportive and healing environment.

Playing a vital leadership role on the ward, you'll also use your expertise and ideas to help us continually evolve best practice and set new standards both within the Priory Group and across the profession.
The successful candidate will undertake and manage direct patient care, having participated fully in the assessment, planning and evaluation of care needs.

What we'd like from you

Whether you are currently working elsewhere or returning to practice, you'll be patient centric with a commitment to delivering high quality care.
