Job Description

Job summary
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a full time enthusiastic, motivated and caring First Contact Mental Health Practitioner to work with children and young people in primary care, within the expanding multidisciplinary team of the Whitby Coast and Moors Primary Care Network (PCN). Together with Tees Esk and Wear Valleys (TEWV) NHS Foundation Trust, the PCN is working to transform local community mental health services for young people with mental health problems. The PCN is made up of the historic port town of Whitby and local coastal and moorland villages with a strong sense of community.
Feedback informs us that a young person's first contact with services for emotional and mental health support is a critical part of their journey to recovery. We see this new role as fundamental to the development of innovative and integrated mental health services within our local community, relieving pressure from the GP's and allowing additional time for mental health problems to be fully explored. The role will help us achieve our shared ambition of 'no wrong door' and the delivery of the right care, in the right place, at the right time, and with the right service.
NMC Mental Health Nurses, Social Workers (England), HCPC Occupational Therapist encouraged to apply.

Main duties of the job
You will work as an autonomous practitioner within friendly teams of GPs, other First Contact Mental Health Practitioners, ANPs, Practice Nurses, and Pharmacists. You will develop close working relationships and be a valued member of the Primary Care Team. You will collaborate with other professionals, both internal to, and external from, the PCN. Your role will involve offering specialist mental health advice and providing expert clinical care for young people with a range of mental health needs. You will work closely with partner organisations within the local mental health system to ensure that those with complex mental illness do not fall between gaps in services. You will also contribute to safe and effective transitions in care between Child & Adolescent and Adult Mental Health services, where appropriate. You will improve access by being a 'first contact child and adolescent mental health practitioner', undertaking triage, assessments, brief interventions, and reviews. You will contribute to networking and navigation expertise, enabling access to a range of appropriate mental health support across the community system.

About us
Primary care networks (PCN) have been created to help integrate primary care with secondary and community services and provide care at greater scale by sharing staff and some funding.
Whitby Coast and Moors PCN comprises 5 GP practices. Together our practices serve a 26,800 patient population. The practices hold both Personal Medical Services and General Medical Services Contracts and are approved training practices. We cover a large rural area which presents challenges in providing fair access to high quality services. There are areas of deprivation and unmet clinical and social need across the area. We also serve a larger seasonal temporary population as a popular holiday destination.
The practices are keen to develop their services and staff teams, being innovative training and research practices. Whitby Coast and Moors PCN is ideal for those wishing to develop a portfolio career while maintaining a superb work/life balance.
Our diverse team is made up of GPs, Advanced Clinical Practitioners, Pharmacists, Nurses, Health Care Assistants, Social Prescribers, Care Coordinators and Mental Health Practitioners and a range of support and managerial staff.
We are committed to providing a safe and supportive environment to work in where you will have a voice, feel appreciated and listened to.
The successful candidate will be well supported, work autonomously and have day to day responsibility for their clinics and workload.
