Options for Care are looking to recruit Senior Registered Mental Health Nurses or suitably experienced Senior Learning Disability Nurses, across our existing hospital units at Dartmouth House.
Dartmouth House is a 16-bed male long term complex care mental health inpatient unit based in Handsworth Wood, Birmingham.

For this reason, everyone has an individual wellbeing risk assessment followed by a personalised support plan. This ensures their continued wellbeing and attendance at work. Options for Care have ensured a constant supply of PPE throughout the pandemic.
This has enabled staff to continue to safely work with service users supporting them in their progression along their recovery pathway. Despite the continued pandemic and significantly increased challenges, we maintain relationship-centred, best practice interventions, supporting people to improve their quality of life. They continue to work towards their personal goals whilst we maintain least restrictive principles.
The post-holder will be required to support the wider clinical team and less experienced members of the clinical team through coaching, support and clinical leadership. They will be a clinical role model within the multidisciplinary team providing quality, evidence based nursing advice, support and care for service users with mental health needs and their carers within a multidisciplinary setting. The post-holder must understand and implement the mission, vision and values of the organisation.
