Derbyshire Healthcare is proud to deliver compassionate care from smoke-free environments.

A focus on recovery
Here at Derbyshire Healthcare, we are committed to working alongside the people who use our services, to help them lead meaningful and satisfying lives.
We believe in compassionate, patient-centred care. Each member of staff has a part to play in supporting the people who use our services. But don't just take our word for it, visit our website to watch our "We are Derbyshire Healthcare" video to see what our staff, service receivers, carers and members have to say about the Trust.



An exciting opportunity is available for a Band 6 Lead Nurse to be part of a the pilot service JET Joint Engagement Team.

Derbyshire HealthCare Foundation Trust and Derbyshire Constabulary have committed to a new partnership team working as part of the national High Intensity Network (HIN) based on an award-winning model of care developed on the Isle of Wight called SIM. The role of the team is to professionalise and co-ordinate new standards of excellence between the emergency and healthcare teams that support people with highly intensive patterns of mental illness. Individuals that present frequently across the health and police pathways within Derbyshire ( particularly those who have been detained under section 136).JET will provide an intensive, integrated support and mentoring team for service users who are struggling to manage repetitive, challenging, complex and high risk behaviour. The 2 core members of the mentoring team will always be a qualified mental health practitioner and a specially trained police officer who will work full time within mental health community teams, jointly funded by the police and CCG.

The ideal candidate will be highly motivated with experience of partnership working, a genuine interest in working with High Impact Users of Services, working closely with our police colleagues supporting the most vulnerable and high risk service users.

As a service we are looking for individuals who are genuinely warm and engaging and focussed on client / customer satisfaction. They will be a good communicator, demonstrate respect and dignity. We strive to display common courtesies, listen more than we speak, explain why, and act when something isn’t right.  We work with patients with complex mental health needs and offer treatment in the least restrictive environment. We focus on empowerment and recovery for the service user and their families.

Risk assessment and formulation skills are essential together with experience of working with people with severe mental illness.

As a large part of the team's work involves assessing people in mental health crisis within a variety of settings and challenging situations, applicants must be familiar with and engage in assessments on a regular basis and meet the travel requirements of the post.

Working hours will predominantly be Monday to Friday 9-5. Base is likely to be The Police Headquarters at Ripley however this will be confirmed and there will be a need to travel across the whole of Derbyshire.

Please note a vetting process will need to take place as well the normal DBS process, this is an enhanced check from Derbyshire police for us to access there buildings.

As this is a secondment opportunity please ensure that you have your managers permission.
