    We are looking for a Registered General Nurse (RGN) with a passion for delivering high quality physical health care in a mental health environment.

    People with a serious mental illness are at greater risk of poor physical health and have a higher premature mortality than the general population. It is estimated that for people with serious mental illness, 2 in 3 deaths are from physical illnesses that can be prevented. The NHS Five Year Forward View for Mental Health highlighted the need to address the physical health needs of people with serious mental health.
