This new service has been created as part of recent service developments in which West London NHS Trust have re-defined and extended their specialist psychosis rehabilitation services.

The services aim to help change trajectories for those who have traditionally been high users of acute psychiatric services and to improve both their levels of clinical symptomatology and their levels of functioning and social inclusion. Our new Community rehabilitation teams (as part of the ICP) have excellent links with housing, LA, social care and range of VCSE organisations.

These teams are holistic and holds a bio-psycho-social and trauma informed understanding of service user’s rehabilitation needs. The team has a full multidisciplinary membership and promotes a positive approach to recovery and aims to reduce the need for admissions. The multi-disciplinary teams will offer support in the least restrictive environment with the aim of helping people progress from more intensive inpatient or housing support through to greater independent living. The team will engender a multi-agency approach to recovery with a strong focus on engaging service users with local community and third sector organisations. The team will also support the repatriation of people currently placed out of area for rehabilitation. The teams will provide specialist substance use support to inform overall care planning and develop strong connections with community substance use services.

Ideally you will have a keen interest in change management and service delivery. There are numerous opportunities for training or to attend specialist events.
