Triage Team Leader – Fixed Term Contract; Full Time

Triage Team Leader
Bournemouth, Dorset
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, and to support this growth we are looking for a proactive, solution focussed, and confident Team Leader to add to our existing leadership team.

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 delivering (alongside existing Team Leaders and Head of Operations), the implementation of the Triage roles into Primary Care Networks, so we need you to be great with interpersonal relationships, to be solution focussed, patient and supportive.

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: 25th & 26th August 2022

Start Date: ASAP
