The Minehead & West Somerset Older Persons Integrated Community Mental Health Team (OPMH) are inviting Mental Health Nurses (RMN) to apply for an exciting opportunity to work within the CMHT. We are looking for an exceptional RMN that has both the experience and passion to work with older people with severe and enduring mental health difficulties.

The OPMH team is a multi-disciplinary team that provides assessment, treatment, review and support for people over the age of 65 with complex mental health problems. As part of an Integrated Service we work with the Integrated Rehab Teams and District Nurses and we link closely with other professionals such as GP’s and other organisations such as Adult Social Care and Voluntary Groups.

As a Care Co-ordinator in our team, you will have a defined caseload with a focus on working directly with clients, families and their carers to ensure people receive an effective assessment with support and information to manage their condition whilst considering any possible risk or safeguarding concerns.


You will need to demonstrate exceptional interpersonal skills with the ability to communicate effectively whilst remaining sensitive and empathic.

In return for your commitment to the service, we will provide you with excellent management and clinical supervision, access to further training and a job that is guaranteed to be rewarding.
