Mental health nurses needed

Have your say

NEW mental health nurses are needed to carry out vital work on Wearside.

Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust (NTW) is recruiting for a range of qualified nursing posts.

The trust employs more than 6,000 staff across Northumberland, Newcastle, North Tyneside, Gateshead, South Tyneside and Sunderland.

Community psychiatric nurse and care co-ordinator Stacey Rodgers is a member of the Intensive Community Treatment Service, part of the Children and Young People’s Service for Sunderland and South Tyneside.

She said: “Working with children and young people is challenging but can also be exceptionally rewarding, fun and interesting.

“If you can engage with young people in a meaningful and therapeutic way, providing a quality care experience at the earliest opportunity, then you can have a truly positive impact on a young person’s life.”

Posts are available in a number of areas including children and young people services, neurological services, autism and eating disorders.
