Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust provides specialist inpatient and community mental health, learning disabilities, addiction services and acquired brain injury services for the people of Liverpool, Sefton and Kirkby, Merseyside. We also provide community physical health services in Liverpool and Sefton, secure mental health services for the North West of England, the West Midlands and Wales and specialist learning disability services across Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Cheshire and Merseyside. Our services are currently provided from 124 sites across the North West.
Our ambition is to deliver perfect care and become the world’s leading organisation in physical, mental health, addiction and learning disabilities. We set our own standards and goals for improvements in care rather than aiming to meet minimum standards set by other organisations. Our values are those of: Continuous Improvement, Accountability, Respect, Enthusiasm and Support. We are the first Trust in the UK to publicly commit and develop a policy to have zero suicides among people in our care by 2020.
We work closely with service users, carers and partner organisations, we've been able to make real improvements to our diverse range of services, from health and social care, right through to high secure provision. This passion to improve has been recognised by the CQC who have recently rated us “Good” overall and “Outstanding” for being well led.

Due to new investment Local Services Division are seeking interest from Band 5 Registered Mental Health Nurses to join our recently recruited band 6 night unit coordinators to provide support across all inpatient wards within the division.
The Band 5 positions (and unit coordinators) are additional posts to the wards established budgets and have been created to ensure there is more Registered Nurse support out of hours.

Being flexible to meet the needs of the service is a key element to the role. Applicants also need to have the personal qualities to form effective working relationships with a variety of different staff groups.
