Full Job Description

NHS Scotland is committed to encouraging equality and diversity among our workforce and eliminating unlawful discrimination. The aim is for our workforce to be truly representative and for each employee to feel respected and able to give their best. To this end, NHS Scotland welcomes applications from all sections of society.

CAMHS Outpatient Department.

The Service provided is driven by the needs of children and young people who are required to be seen as an emergency/urgent psychiatric referral to the department or are currently self-harming. Using an understanding of normal child and adolescent development, the Team will provide individualised care and treatment programmes to enable children and young people to deal with their difficulties in a more proactive way whilst supporting families through very anxiety provoking times.

The Service will also provide on-going support to other professionals within the Public/Voluntary Sector who are dealing with emergency care or self-harm issues in relation to their working practice.

As the successful applicant you will be a Registered Mental Health Nurse with appropriate experience of working within the field of mental health or CAMH setting with evidence of ongoing professional development. We are looking for an individual who will enjoy working in a challenging environment. You must possess excellent interpersonal and communication skills and be willing to undertake educational and development activities.

Reporting to the CAMHS Response Team Leader within Tayside, this is an opportunity for a permanent full time position within the team.

The contracted base for this post is Centre for Child Health 19 Dudhope Terrace with travel required across NHS Tayside on a regular basis.

You must be a Registered Nurse in Mental Health (RNMH) with UK NMC.

Informal enquiries to: Laura Petrie Nurse Team Leader on 0r ext 54518.

Hours of work are:  37 per week

NHS Scotland is reducing their full time working week from 37.5 to 37 hours per week from 1 April 2024 but with no change in pay.  This reduction will also be applied pro rata for part time staff.  This advert and any subsequent offer/contract of employment therefore reflects the new working hours.  However, as not all service areas will be able to adopt the 37 hour working week immediately from 1 April 2024, you may be required to work up to an additional 30 minutes per week for a temporary period for which you would be paid until the service you are working in changes rosters or working patterns to accommodate the new reduced working week.  If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Recruiting Board.

Short-listed applicants will be contacted by email.   Please check your emails regularly, including your junk/spam folder.
