Grosvenor Nursing is a supporter of Mental Health Awareness Week – which runs from 21 to 27 May 2012 - and the work of the Mental Health Foundation - www.mentalhealth.org.uk. Grosvenor is a nursing agency that provides mental health-qualified nurses for homecare and care provider settings. The Mental Health Foundation raises awareness of public mental health issues which are often neglected.
Mental health nursing is one of the most complex and demanding areas of nursing, says Grosvenor. As many as one in three people are thought to suffer some form of mental health problem. For many, mental illness is brought on by a crisis in life, with which they can’t cope, such as depression after the death of a partner.
A mental health nurse may be part of a team working with people who may have been excluded from services through drug or alcohol abuse. The range of conditions is wide: neuroses, psychoses, psychological and personality disorders all come under the broad heading of mental health.
Grosvenor Nursing can provide nurses and HCAs in a range of settings, such as for residential and day care centres, as well for private nursing care at home. Grosvenor manages and supplies temporary staff for short, medium and long term assignments. Nurses can work as part of a team which can include general practitioners, psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, occupational therapists, arts therapists and healthcare assistants.
Grosvenor offers nurses jobs in all major mental health specialisations. It operates a detailed process for registering staff and ensuring compliance. This includes: face-to-face interviews to confirm language ability; CRB checking; completion of a 23-page registration form, including full details of career history and qualifications; provision of four references; proof of original ‘right to work’, qualifications and training certification; and an employer’s report.
Registration for nursing agency jobs is free. Grosvenor is recruiting staff throughout England for HM Prison Service, Primary Care Trusts and Mental Health Trusts in all areas – currently in Birmingham, Bradford, Bristol, Cardiff, Coventry, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Leicester; Liverpool and London, Manchester, Nottingham, Sheffield, Sunderland and Wakefield.
