Job Description

Job overview

Forensic Maidstone TGU

Forensics - Trevor Gibbens Unit (Medium Secure Centre)

The Trevor Gibbens unit specialises in the assessment and treatment of mentally disordered offenders, serving the community of Kent and a population of approximately 1.6 million. This is a 65 beds unit with a range of clinical facilities based on patient need.

One area of our work deals specifically with people who have come into contact with the criminal justice system. Those received into our secure inpatient settings are mentally-disordered offenders who require detention during their care - assessment through treatment to the prospect of rehabilitation.

Main duties of the job

The Ministry of Justice oversees our work and our colleagues in the police and ambulance service partner closely with us on initiatives including street triage, designed to identify early warning signs and improve the response to people in a mental health crisis.

In 2020, we will pilot a new scheme, supporting eligible patients back into the community at the earliest opportunity, working with supportive employers and leading charitable organisations to offer second chances and a new future away from crime.

This is mirrored in our Criminal Justice and Liaison Service (CJLDS), a collaboration between KMPT, the county's custody suites and the courts, using new technologies to offer swift assessments in the cells to identify a wealth of vulnerabilities, often for the first time, that can be the root cause of criminal activity and then the right support to help break the offending cycle.

Working for our organisation

Come and work with us in the Garden of England where we combine exceptional professional development opportunities with a tremendous quality of life.

We are Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust (KMPT), providing mental health, learning disability and specialist services, serving 1.8 million people across the county.

The Trust (rated Good overall by the CQC and Outstanding for care) has 3,283 staff working in 66 buildings across 33 locations, covering an area of 1,450 square miles.

You will be joining friendly, passionate colleagues, rich in their diversity, who are committed to providing excellent care to our service users and their loved ones.

The nature of our work attracts kindness and compassion as standard and everyone from our cleaners and porters to the chief executive and chairman are recognised as playing a vital role in providing an exemplary service.

Detailed job description and main responsibilities
We are also at the forefront of neuropsychiatry and neuropsychology. In 2019, we hosted a first, a conference in conjunction with our colleagues at the University of Kent highlighting the links between neuroimmunology and psychosis. The Encephalitis Society called it ground-breaking.

You can see the opportunities are varied, challenging, rewarding, and life-changing for everyone involved. Speak to us about a new career at KMPT.

We are looking for dedicated Staff Nurses to join us and be part of our forward thinking, progressive team that invests in staff through continuous development and career progression.

You might be a newly qualified RMN/RNLD nurse, a RMN looking to return to work or an experienced nurse looking for a new challenge.

We are now receiving applications from oversea mental health nurses who have their IELTS and are in the process of applying for NMC registration.

We are always happy to talk to you about your flexible working needs.
