An exciting clinical team manager opportunity has arisen at Birmingham & Solihull Mental Health Foundation Trust (BSMHFT) in the field of offender health. This opportunity is to drive and provide clinical management and support to the prison mental health teams, based at HMP Birmingham

As a member of the senior management team the role will take a clinical leadership role in advising, developing and ensuring the delivery of high quality services across the in-patient service that provides 24hr healthcare and a Community Mental health Team and support the Service Manager in developing the teams and service to meet the prison population needs.

In addition the post holder will play a lead role in the development and delivery of clinical services for prison mental health, which are recovery focussed and support individuals from a diverse background.

We are an expanding prison mental health service with focused pathways on Acute in-patient assessment and interventions, Secondary mental health, Trauma, Personality Disorder, Dementia care and Learning Disability and have built a skilled workforce that can meet the variety and challenge that working in a custodial setting brings.
