Staff Nurse and Senior Staff Nurse

Fairbairn Ward, Mens's Mental Health, Northampton

From £23,599.00- £32,656.00 + Shift Enhancements + £1641.00 St Andrew’s Clinical Allowance


Fairbairn is a 15 bed ward in purpose-built medium secure service which manages deaf or hearing impaired (profound, severe, partial or hard of hearing) patients’ with complex mental illness in a culturally sensitive environment.


The ward accepts patients with a wide range of diagnosis including mental illness, learning disability, brain injury, autism spectrum disorder or personality disorder.
