An exciting opportunity has arisen within the Warrington Learning Disability Community Team for a Nurse Practitioner to join our Team.
The post offers a great diverse set of opportunities to work within a Team that provides input to adults with a learning disability. The Team also works collaboratively with a number of agencies and providers working with adults with learning disabilities in their own homes and a variety of community based settings.

We are looking for a confident individual who will be able to manage a caseload. The role will include working with adults with complex physical health needs, complex behaviours utilising Positive Behavioural support and/or mental health needs alongside their learning disability. The post also involves enabling and supporting people with learning disabilities to access mainstream services.

The successful candidate will have access to bi-monthly managerial supervision from the Team Manager and weekly caseload supervision, waiting list management and allocations with your Peer Nursing Colleague and assistants in addition to Clinical Supervision and CPD opportunities.
We are also committed to supporting personal and professional development and you will be offered a yearly Personal development review and planning work objectives.
