NHS and Private Sectors
High quality, compassionate care is about people, not institutions. In every ward and clinic, in every hospital, health centre, community service and patient’s home across the country, Mental Health nurses work hard to provide care and compassion to people when needed; in times of challenge or uncertainty; or as part of helping people with long term conditions to stay safe, supported and live as independently as possible. Westmeria Recruitment are proud to help recruit into positions to assist the NHS in continuing the delivery to these much need services to provide exceptional care to assess, treat, diagnose and discharge service users across many different areas within Social Care, the NHS and private sectors.
Prisons and Offending
It is reported that a high proportion of people in contact with the criminal justice system suffer from mental health issues. Addressing the needs of people with mental disorders improves the probability that upon leaving prison, they will be able to adjust to community life, which may in turn, reduce the likelihood that they will return to prison. Access to assessment, treatment, and (when necessary) referral of people with mental disorders, including substance abuse, plays an integral part of this process.
Through adopting their relationship-based and collaborative skills, Westmeria Recruitment Social workers can support people to make positive changes with their loved ones involvement, when appropriate, which can then lead them to improve their potential as individuals in leading enriching life within both personal and professional aspects.
