From the 1st of April 2017 Young Persons Substance Misuse services in Gwent were re-commissioned to deliver an Integrated service for those aged under 18 years residing in Gwent with drug and alcohol issues. This service has since been named N-GAGE which operates a Single point of contact for all referrals. N-GAGE is delivered by both ABUHB S-CAMHS (Complex element) and Barod (Specialist Element).

A position has now become available for a 0.4WTE Band 6 RMN based at St Cadocs Hospital.

The role includes:
• Carrying a case load providing assessment, care planning and delivery of evidenced based therapeutic interventions/treatment to Young people with complex substance misuse needs.
• Provide Consultation, Education, support and guidance to the Specialist Substance Misuse  element.
• Mange transitions into S-CAMHS and  Adult Services (Mental Health & Substance Misuse Services) where required

The post holder will  be expected to support the Team manager to achieve organisational targets, have excellent communication and interpersonal skills and preferably have a proven track record of either: working with service users with complex Substance Misuse issues or Mental Health experience.

You will have a commitment to providing person centered care and will, through your actions at all times demonstrate a strong value base to embrace change. There is an expectation that the post holder will cover other localities within Gwent during periods of annual leave, sickness and increased demand.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; Welsh and/or English speakers are equally welcome to apply.

Closing date:  14th April 2020
