The Position

This is a dynamic role, where you will make a difference in the community by focusing on supporting an innovative, interdisciplinary emergency diversion clinic. You will be primarily based at the Mental Health Centre within the hospital, with a focus on supporting the triage and assessment centre. The triage and assessment centre is an interdisciplinary emergency diversion and community walk-in facility, providing accessible healthcare to the local community.

Within this role you will provide quality specialist healthcare within an acute mental health inpatient setting and community mental health settings. This role focuses on assessment and care within emergency and crisis contexts as well as supporting other units within the mental health centre. There is also a unique opportunity to develop your leadership skills and grow within your career.

The Hospital

Enjoy working within a network of hospitals providing community-based health services and tertiary care services, for a Local Health District truly dedicated to serving their community. All hospitals provide a range of both in-patient and outpatient services to patients from within the district boundaries as well as beyond. You will be joining a hospital that provides world-class clinical care, research and innovation. The hospital provides high-level inpatient services, generally with the capacity to manage high complexity patients requiring specialist care, such as emergency, critical care, acute medicine, planned and emergency surgery, maternity, neonatal, paediatric medicine and minor surgery, mental health, aged care and rehabilitation services, drug and alcohol and a broad range of specialist outpatient clinics and services.

The Location

You will enjoy a variety of activities in your time-off, from exploring the nearby bushwalking trails, eucalyptus forests and waterfalls, to indulging in the many shopping and entertainment venues, all with the bustling city in easy access.
