This is a specialist role and we will support you to do your best for patients by offering a specific Mental Health Act induction programme. Following this you will be offered ongoing support and training as you develop within the team. All our Mental Health Act Administrators are expected to place patient experience and care at the centre of their approach. 

The role is 3 days a week and will report to the Regional Mental Health Law Lead but will also work closely with staff at Roehampton & Hayes Grove and other sites and Mental Health Act Administrators.
