Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust - More jobs by this advertiser

Our developing Health Visiting Service has undergone a recent service transformation that has been recognised both locally and nationally as an exemplar of good practice through its commitment to early intervention and prevention.

We are looking to recruit forward thinking practitioners who are keen to embrace change and can exemplify the following essential activities in their work with families:

  • Being supportive (to sustain, encourage and care)
  • Being connected and facilitative (Build therapeutic relationships)
  • Being influential (to inspire and to change)
  • Being purposeful (to be focused, determined and persistent)

If you are the candidate we are looking for you will possess the following qualities:

  • Respect and interest in parents
  • Being genuine
  • Empathy and understanding
  • Personal strength, integrity and humility
  • Prepared to invest time effort and emotional energy.
  • Being trustworthy, reliable and consistent in word and deed.

The successful candidates will join one of our locality teams in Blackpool to deliver the Healthy Child Programme to the 0 – 5yrs population. You will have an identified caseload but may also be required to work at other locations to support equitable service delivery across the locality.

We are a service committed to early intervention and prevention and have clear antenatal and perinatal/maternal mental health pathways established. We deliver an evidence based universal antenatal programme, Baby Steps, delivered during the day and some evenings. There is an expectation that the post holder would deliver the programme following training and in partnership with Better Start.

You will benefit from an excellent training package unique to Blackpool which includes Adverse Childhood Experiences, Behavioural Activation and a new and effective model of restorative supervision.
