Triage Practitioner – Fixed Term Contract; Full Time

Triage Practitioner
Bournemouth, Dorset, Poole
Posted 3 weeks ago

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 team of Triage practitioners who are 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 appointment for the patient to talk about their needs, to reduce inappropriate referrals to services, which can feel frustrating, and to free up GP appointments. 

The successful candidate will be offering the triage appointments daily via remote working.  These appointments will be delivered over the phone, unless the patient has special requirements, and on a 1:1 basis. 

You will work closely with our existing well-structured services already embedded in the PCNs with specialisms in adult Active Monitoring and Children Active Monitoring, which form a key pathway from the Triage Assessments.

All training will be provided. An Enhanced DBS Check will be carried out.

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

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

Closing date: Midnight Sunday 14th August 2022

Interview dates: 22nd & 23rd August 2022
