Perinatal Mental Health Nursery Nurse, Band 4


Part Time: 30 hours per week

We are delighted to be advertising this new opportunity for a motivated and enthusiastic nursery nurse to join our expanding perinatal community mental health team

Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust is expanding its perinatal mental health services following a successful application to NHS England’s Perinatal Mental Health Community Services Development Fund (Wave 2 PMH CSDF).

In 2016 a small Perinatal Mental Health Service was established in Bromley. As a result of our successful application a trust wide community Perinatal Mental Health Service is being established to provide high quality mental health care for women who are planning a pregnancy, pregnant or up to one year postnatal in the boroughs of Bexley, Bromley & Greenwich.  The Perinatal Mental Health Service will cover a geographical area with an annual birth rate of over 12,000 births: 3174 in Bexley; 4079 in Bromley and 4766 in Greenwich.

The service will comprise three borough-based teams providing specialist, multidisciplinary perinatal mental health care for women from preconception, during pregnancy and up to one year postnatal who have a GP in one of the three boroughs, or who live in Bexley, Bromley or Greenwich but are not registered with a GP. The three teams will be co-located at Queen Mary’s Hospital, Sidcup.

This development has led to the creation of  a band 4 Nursery Nurse post across the 3 boroughs.  They will work collaboratively with others in the Bexley, Bromley & Greenwich Perinatal Mental Health Service, professionals from other services (e.g. maternity services and health visiting) and with our experts by experience, to build on the achievements to date and continue to develop this high quality service to ensure excellent outcomes for women and their families.

Oxleas NHS Trust operates a Probationary Period, further details are available on request.
