Job Description

While you care for others, at Priory's Cheadle Royal Hospital we'll care for you and your career.

We're currently looking for CAMHS Nurses to add to our friendly family - we are one of the Priory Groups largest hospitals and we pride ourselves on having the best teams.

Priory Hospital Cheadle Royal has 14 different wards and cares for 151 patients. Each ward has a dedicated Multi-Disciplinary Team which includes a Consultant Psychiatrist, Speciality Doctor, Ward Manager, Psychologist, Occupational Therapist and support services including RMN and experienced Healthcare Assistants. Our primary aim is to support and care for our patients providing a full clinical pathway for patients onsite.

We operate a comprehensive inpatient mental health service for young people aged between 13 and 18 years, comprising open acute and psychiatric intensive care services. The Young People's Service is made up of 3 wards; Meadows, Orchard and Woodlands.

Meadows PICU is a 10 bed child and adolescent mixed psychiatric intensive care unit which offers assessments and treatment to young people, male and female up to 18 years of age and with complex care needs. Meadows is one of only a few specialist child and adolescent psychiatric intensive care units.

Orchard is a 15 bed acute admissions/treatment ward for young people with a range of mental health presentations with enduring high-risk behaviours. The therapeutic programme emphasises the development of new life skills and coping strategies, whilst continuing formal education.

Woodlands is a 10 bed low secure therapeutic service for adolescent girls aged between 13 and 18 years of age, all of who have a diagnosis of Emergent Personality Disorder. They offer a variety of therapies and interventions to help the young person safely address their past traumas, whilst rehabilitating them with a view to achieving a smooth transition back to a community based setting.

As a nurse working on our CAMHS wards, you will work alongside the experienced multidisciplinary team in aspiring to provide excellent bespoke care to enable our patients to fulfil their recovery goals and work towards discharge to the life they want.

The ethos of the units is to provide support in times of crisis and to offer therapeutic engagement during the inpatient stay working alongside appropriate risk management plans.
