At Roseberry Park Hospital, we are looking to add Health Care Assistants and Trainees to our team on the Westerdale North Ward.
Our ward serves as an acute assessment unit for seniors 65 and older who are dealing with functional mental illness. Upon discharge from the ward, many of these patients receive support at home.
The chosen individuals would be required to put in 37.5 hours per week of labor in a 24 hour shift pattern.
We welcome prospective recruits to get in touch with the wards and set up a visit or conversation to learn more about the services we provide at MHSOP.
Main responsibilities of the job
To give patients direct care and to ensure their safety while they are confined to inpatient wards.
The chosen candidate must have earned a level three diploma in health and social care or something comparable. 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).
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.
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.
