Rydon Ward in Taunton are looking for Mental Health Nurses (RMN) to contribute to providing excellent services. 

We know that working on an acute ward can be challenging, but with the right team we are rising to the challenge and reaping the reward of being able to support people during their most difficult times.

Rydon Ward consists of 2 fully refurbished wards, both looking after 15 adults. We provide an environment that is modern, bright, clean and safe for our residents to recover in, as well as a great facility for our staff to work in.

You’ll give a valuable contribution to the patient’s recovery, with responsibility for the assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation of care plans, and promote equality and diversity.

With you in our team, we will empower you to work innovatively, showing a commitment to providing compassionate care and a strong desire to improve the patient’s experience. You will be able to apply the philosophies of engagement, recovery and positive care in your work with your patients.

We are a unique ward as we are based on site along alongside 2 other acute mental health wards including a Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit and Older Peoples Inpatient Ward, and we have an ECT Suite on site. This creates an environment where we can share knowledge and experience with our colleagues, whilst supporting each other to provide the most high-quality patient care. Rydon Ward is also 1 of 9 wards in the UK with 2 beds for Ministry of Defence Civilians.

We are fortunate enough to consider applications form preceptees and will pay your first year’s registration fee for NMC, and we can offer an excellent relocation package for those looking to move to the area.

If you join us you will benefit from all of the above, as well as excellent support from your manager and colleagues and you’ll have opportunities to access specialist training in line with your professional development.

We would love to hear from you so please get in touch or apply if you feel you have what we are looking for and vice versa.
