At our adult learning disability inpatient department, we are now hiring healthcare assistants.
The Diploma in Health and Social Care Level 3 or an equivalent degree must have been earned by the chosen candidates. Applicants must also meet the Trust Healthcare Assistant competencies within their probationary period and have literacy and numeracy skills at level 2 or higher (first 6 months in role).
Main responsibilities of the job
The chosen individuals who lack the necessary credentials will be forced to enroll in the Healthcare Assistant Framework, which entails earning a level 3 Diploma in Health and Social Care, a level 2 in Reading and Numeracy, or an equivalent, and meeting competency requirements. You will have no more than two years to finish this.
The individuals would be in charge of helping those with learning disabilities who also exhibit worrying behaviors, mental health issues, or epilepsy.
We are looking to hire people who are adaptable, energetic, and care deeply about our clientele. The job will be multifaceted and encompass all facets of care, from establishing systems for delivering care plans to encouraging client autonomy and choice.
In order to participate in community activities as part of their treatment plans, our clients need someone who will support them in doing so.
Although a comprehensive induction will be provided and additional training will be provided as identified/required, experience dealing with people with learning disabilities is ideal for this role due to the complicated nature of the client group.
We represent County Durham and Darlington, Teesside, North Yorkshire, York, and Selby as the Mental Health & Learning Disability NHS Trust.
Our gifted and caring staff work in collaboration with our patients, communities, and partners to support the people of our region feel secure, understood, believed in, and cared for—from education and prevention to crisis and specialty treatment.
Anybody who need our assistance has their recovery path nurtured by us. Because we listen to every person in our care until they feel understood, everyone in Our Trust has a say in how they are supported and treated. Together with us, our patients’ relatives and caregivers seek to improve mental health.
We are dedicated to innovative thinking that raises the quality of life in our community. We collaborate with our partners and local communities to provide effective mental health care where it is most needed.
We won’t stop until everyone in our area gets access to the mental health services they require to live their best lives.
