Current Opportunities

Triage Practitioner
Dorset, Hybrid (Dorset Mind HQ, Remote Working, Within PCN)


We are very excited to be rolling out the Dorset Mind Triage services across Primary Care Network (PCN) settings in Dorset, so we are looking for a Triage practitioner who is supportive, caring, resilient, solution focussed, and confident.

The role of the Triage team is to offer an enhanced initial triage assessment to patients requiring support with their mental health. The aim is to provide an extended first contact appointment for the patient to talk about their needs, and signpost them to suitable, relevant services. This reduces inappropriate referrals to services, which can feel frustrating for patients and frees up GP’s time.

The successful candidate will be offering the triage appointments daily via remote working. These appointments will be for 20 minutes each patient and delivered via the telephone.

You will work closely with our existing well-structured services already embedded in the PCNs with specialisms in Adult Active Monitoring and Children’s Active Monitoring, and other services offered within the PCN like Steps2wellbeing, Help and Care, and local support groups, which all form key pathways from the Triage Assessments.

All training will be provided.

If this sounds like you, we look forward to hearing from you.

We actively welcome a rich diversity of applicants to this role.

We may close early for applications so encourage applicants to apply at your earliest convenience.

Previous applicants need not apply.

Closing date: Midnight 11th June 2023

Interview dates: WC 19th June 2023

Start Date: ASAP
