A fantastic opportunity to come and work in the stunning far North Highlands of Scotland, which offers excellent lifestyle choices, right on the famous Route NC500!  There are huge benefits to living in the Highlands and a wealth of knowledge and skills in our communities.  Our mix of urban, remote and rural and island communities make NHS Highland a unique place to live and work.  Frequently voted as one of the happiest places to be, we can offer you a quality of life that you don’t get elsewhere.  We enjoy some of the cleanest air in the UK and access to exercise outdoors amongst beautiful scenery.  Our communities are close-knit and supportive and as a major employer, we have the power to develop career paths that retain and attract talent to the area.

Are you interested in being part of the North & West Sutherland Integrated Health and Social Care Team? An exciting opportunity has arisen for a motivated and enthusiastic individual who wishes to join Community Mental Health Team as a Community Psychiatric Nurse, Generic and Drug and Alcohol Recovery within the Integrated Team, to provide care and support to patients in their own homes and other community settings across primarily North Sutherland.  You will be required to carry out assessments, care planning, care implementation and reviews and act as a care co-ordinator where appropriate for clients in the North Sutherland area.  You will need to demonstrate a broad range of clinical therapeutic work as well as being able to work both independently and within the multi-disciplinary team setting.
