Job Description

akeside View is a 32 bedded hospital in Willenhall that cares for patients who are 18 years and over in an acute setting.

Finch Ward - 12 bedded male acute ward

Robin Ward - 8 bedded male acute ward

Swan Ward - 8 bedded female acute ward

The aim at Lakeside View is to provide a person centred approach and therapeutic environment, which promotes collaborative care planning to optimise treatment goals. Right from the point of admission to our acute services, our aim is to support patients to be discharged safely back into the community where they can continue to progress towards recovery in a less restrictive environment.

This will be achieved by:

- Thorough assessment of individuals needs throughout admission

- Person centred collaborative treatment plans

- A range of interventions available from a diverse MDT

- Being cared for in the least restrictive environment

The acute wards on site provides patients with excellent space and facilities, including en-suite bedrooms and large living spaces furnished with activity equipment such as games consoles.

Outside of the wards, a purpose built therapy suite contains a rehabilitation kitchen for patient cooking sessions, and a sessional therapy room. The hospital is set in the centre of an extensive nature reserve, which contains an abundance of flora & fauna. The site also has areas for outside sports activity.

The clinical team at Lakeside View encourage full involvement of the service user, their family and external professionals throughout their stay. They are invited to attend Ward Reviews and CPA meetings to ensure clear communication throughout the care pathway in order to promote individuals' recovery and facilitate discharge.

In order to maximise recovery, interventions offered include a wide range of therapeutic approaches, combining psychiatric and cognitive behavioural perspectives with occupational therapy, psychology, leisure and recreational activity.

Working alongside the nursing and therapy teams you will provide assistance to professional and clinical staff with the planning, implementation and evaluation of social activities in order to improve mental, emotional well-being and quality of life of clients.

At Lakeside View, we believe that it is crucial to look after your physical health in order to help maintain a good mental health, therefore; you will also be a key part in helping to promote and provide physical activities for Service users alongside other therapeutic sessions.
