Do you want a role where you will make an impact and enrich the lives of the patients you care for within a brand new hospital ward?
A fantastic opportunity has arisen to join a new learning disability ward within an established private mental health hospital in Taunton on a full time basis.
We are seeking driven and motivated individuals to work as Healthcare Assistants with experience within mental health and/or learning disabilities. Training will be provided should you not have experience in one of these areas.
The patients you will be supporting will be between the ages of 19 - 40 years and will have mental health difficulties along with some learning difficulties such as autism ( ASD ), speech and language difficulties or mobility difficulties.

About the role:
Your role will involve providing specialist care to adults who have mental health and learning difficulties to promote recovery and enable them to acquire the skills needed to manage their difficulties. You will be required to meet with patients to assess their engagement levels and help ensure risk assessments are up to date to promote their safety.
The patients within your care can display high levels of challenging behaviours, that some people may find distressing. Due to this, all staff members are required to have valid restraint training such as MAPA / TMVA / PMVA. If you do not have the required training, it is mandatory that you attend our specialist 2 day PMVA training course. This course usually costs £250 or more. We are able to offer this to you at a highly discounted price of £75! (We pay the remainder).
