Can you provide clinical leadership for the social care agenda within integrated mental health services?

You will provide expert supervision to social workers and act as a practice educator for students and newly qualified social workers.

Forensic specialist advanced practitioner posts

Advanced practitioners within the forensic service lead teams of social workers within highly specialised multidisciplinary teams. They provide leadership to make sure a social care service is delivered to a group of service users who are detained under the mental health act and have been in contact with the criminal justice system. This group of service users has complex needs and it is essential that their statutory rights are fully protected.

You will lead a team of experienced social workers who manage complex caseloads, and have extensive knowledge of the mental health act in relation to mentally disordered offenders. The service that is delivered must maximise people's rights, particularly given that all service users will be detained under the mental health act, and must also be safe and effective.
