About The Role

Are you an inspiring team leader?

Gatwick Immigration Removal Centre is a detention centre based in the grounds of Gatwick Airport, Crawley, West Sussex. Practice Plus Group has recently taken over the contract for Gatwick IRC, and we are looking for a Mental Health Clinical Lead to join our team.

As the Clinical Lead, you will lead the team delivering the vision, aims, and objectives of Gatwick IRC and have strategic responsibility for its success. You will develop and mobilise a multi-disciplinary, integrated team providing assessment, outcome planning, care, and support for a target population.
This is an opportunity to shape a new service that will provide enhanced care to patients who need additional support because their needs are complex and/or unstable.

The Clinical Lead will be member of the wider management team. Responsibilities include providing the day-to-day clinical and operational management of the mental health team across an integrated healthcare service and contributing to the strategic direction of the service. You will support your team to carry out comprehensive assessments, confidently communicating treatment options, and initiating supportive care plans, working with individuals on a 1-2-1 basis alongside the wider multi-disciplinary team.
 
There will be an expectation for the post holder to lead/contribute to clinical and consumer audits. You'll be responsible to the Head of Healthcare, to ensure the management of the service meets its contractual obligations.
This includes ensuring all operational and clinical data requirements on the Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) are submitted within agreed deadlines and that KPI data is utilised to manage the performance of the team.

About You

As a Registered Mental Health Nurse, you’ll be an integral part of the healthcare team by bringing your top-notch skills, passion for care, and leadership to the role.
This is a leadership role and with your team leaders, you will model a culture of compassion, courage, and competence. The role will include providing challenge, support, and mentorship at the point of delivery, drawing the best from our staff, and improving the quality of care for our services.
If you are self-motivated and able to work autonomously as well as showing plenty of initiative when it comes to handling a wide range of situations, then this could be the right role for you!
