Job description

At Camden and Islington NHS foundation trust our staff and service users have worked closely to create a set of values that make sure people who use our services get the best possible chance of a rapid recovery.

We have 3 key priorities which are:
  • Early and Effective Intervention
  • Helping People to Live Well
  • Research and Innovation

The cultural pillars that help us achieve our key priorities are:
  • We value each other
  • We are empowered
  • We keep things simple
  • We are connected

By coming to work at Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust you will be joining a Trust with a national reputation for research, where services recognise that research underpins its commitment to providing high quality and innovative clinical care.

As an applicant for this role, you are urged to demonstrate within your supporting statement a combination of evidence that reflects your competence to meet the job specification and provide examples of how C&I values are an integral part of the way you have and will continue to deliver service.

We have an opportunity for a full time Band 6 mental health practitioner to join our service.


The Islington Practice Based Mental Health Service has grown over the last four years from a pilot service covering five GP practices to a fully commissioned service covering all GP practices in Islington. The team has a broad remit, working as one of the key points of access to secondary care community services in the Trust, and receives referrals from GPs, adult social care, housing, the police and voluntary sector services. The service sits on the boundary between primary and secondary care and aims to better integrate physical and mental health by working more closely with our GP colleagues in a flexible, creative and collaborative way.

Being part of the team offers a unique and exciting opportunity to participate in innovative service as a mental health nurse. The service is structured as four multidisciplinary teams each covering a locality area in Islington to help promote meaningful relationships with specific cohort of GP practices. The locality teams offer assessment, advice, consultation and short term interventions to people who have complex difficulties. This may for example involve liaising with GPs, offering joint appointments with GPs or others involved in the system and working with family members.

We work closely together as a team as well as with our primary care partners and joint working is at the core of service ethos.



Please do not hesitate to contact Team Manager Yusuf Zavery to arrange an informal visit to the service or to discuss the role.
