We have vacancies for new roles based in GP practices in Worthing

Worthing GP Practice Mental Health Workers

Several full and part-time roles available

Full-time salary £24,005 – Initial 1 year contract but strong likelihood of on-going funding and contracts

GP practices in Worthing want to significantly improve the support they offer patients with mental health problems and are working in partnership with Coastal West Sussex Mind and the Pathfinder Alliance to achieve this by funding new roles which will be based in all practices in Worthing.

For these new roles we are looking for individuals with relevant mental health work experience and ideally a relevant qualification (perhaps as a counsellor, teacher, social worker, nurse, PWP, housing or advice worker) who have a passion and interest in this area.

As a GP practice mental health worker you will see patients individually, supporting them to identify what they need and helping them to work on issues and also access local support to meet these needs including local Pathfinder services. You will be able to take a holistic and flexible approach in your work with individuals supporting around both social and pyschological issues that arise. You may also run practice based groups and well-being sessions where these needs are identified. 

Depending on who is recruited there may well be some flexibility in the hours and days worked and it may be possible to work in the role during school hours. The successful candidates will need to be able to travel to sites across the Worthing area. Please indicate on your application if you want to work full or part-time and if part-time the days/hours you wish to work.    This post is subject to an enhanced DBS check.

The closing date for applications is: 9am 22nd April 2019

Interview days: 1st and 3rd May 2019
