WE ARE OFFERING A £2k 'GOLDEN HANDSHAKE' WHEN YOU JOIN US!
Huntercombe Hospital Maidenhead is the UKs largest specialist Hospital for inpatient CAMHS, serving NHS funded patients, and these positions present an opportunity to work with a leading team in child and adolescent mental health. We support young people who are experiencing significant mental health difficulties requiring inpatient admission. We have a total of 60 beds across four wards: 2 PICU wards (Psychiatric Intensive Care), one GAU (General Adolescent Unit), and one Specialist Eating Disorder Ward.
We would be delighted to speak to you If you’ve previously worked for the NHS
The Huntercombe group is one of the country’s leading specialist healthcare providers, with hospitals and centres throughout England and Scotland, delivering wide-ranging services in adult mental health and learning disabilities, specialist brain injury, and child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) including services for those with eating disorders and social care for children with additional needs. Our aspiration is to nurture the world, one person at a time and that’s why everything we do is designed to provide the best care and recovery for our patients and residents.
Opportunities to work with us
Tamar Ward is a 10-bed GAU for both male and female patients aged 12-18. Tamar supports young people detained under the Mental Health Act as well as informal patients who are experiencing periods of distress which cannot be safely managed in a community CAMHS setting. The MDT provides assessment, formulation and intervention until young people can safely step-down to a community setting.
Our mission and values
We listen, we learn, we empathise, we respect and we care. Insight is fundamental to the way in which we shape our services.
We are innovative
We are creatively dynamic and flexible in our service delivery, our research and learning and in how we go about business. Yet in everything we do we take a measured approach.
We put those in our care first; they are the heart of everything we do. We also recognise the commitment of our staff and stakeholders and the need to continually strengthen relationships with our external partners.
We strive for excellence across our whole service: through our clinical expertise and within our care environments. Through good teamwork, we always aim higher, are never complacent, and lead by example.
Ours is a name to be trusted. We deliver results through transparent service delivery and safety is paramount across all aspects of our business.
We offer accessible and tailored care pathways to meet geographical and specialist needs. We aim to deliver the best possible value-based healthcare within our customers’ budgets.
