Hafan Y Coed is an adult mental health unit that serves the Cardiff and Vale population. We are excited to announce that we have a vacancy on our acute/treatment ward and our psychiatric intensive care unit (PICU).

Our treatment wards are  17 bedded treatment wards for those patients who require ongoing assessment and treatment before they can be discharged back into the community with the appropriate support. Working with patients for a longer period of time can be extremely rewarding and an opportunity to support patients through their recovery and collaboratively working on producing effective care and treatment plans. Our treatment wards comprise of 3 deputy ward managers and 1 ward manager which ensures there is a manger on every day to ensure the smooth running of the ward and a great opportunity to ensure our staff nurses are provided with a positive and supportive environment to enhance their learning and development.

Our PICU is 6 bedded where the most acutely unwell patients will be nursed in order to provide them with the low stimulus environment and enhanced level of support they require to help improve their mental health. There is a vast amount of MDT working to ensure patients are effectively supported and are transitioned to one of the treatment wards in a timely manner. PICU can be a fast paced environment but very rewarding as an opportunity to support those who are extremely unwell but also an opportunity to enhance your risk assessment and communication skills which is key for a PICU nurse.  PICU too has an extended management team like the treatment wards to allow opportunities for effective preceptorship, further development/training and hands on support in the clinical environment.

We are looking for qualified mental health nurses to join our friendly and supportive teams who would like the opportunity to learn and develop within our specialist areas.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; Welsh and/or English speakers are equally welcome to apply.
