VACANCY OF THE WEEK: Inpatient Nurses, Bands 5/6 at the Derwent Centre
Join as a Band 5/6 Nurse and receive a recruitment incentive (lease car or £2,000 cash lump sum).

If you are a driven RMN looking to join an innovative, motivated team in delivering high quality care for individuals, then we want to hear from you.

NEP is proud to announce the completion of Phase One of the refurbishment of the Derwent Centre on the Princess Alexandra Hospital site in Harlow. When fully complete, the new Centre will provide two inpatient wards for 32 people with mental health conditions. There will be newly refurbished ensuite rooms and a ‘hub’, where daily activities will take place including lounge space, dining room and servery.

Harlow is in the west of Essex and borders with Hertfordshire and the outer part of London’s Commuter belt. Easy access for the M11, M25, Cambridge and London Stansted airport.

We offer an exceptional place to work with a reputation as a leading provider of some of the best services in the country for specialist mental health and substance misuse.

The Trust is a values-driven organisation with a strong reputation for innovation and excellence evidenced by its investment in the education and training of staff, and its accreditation as a Practice Development Unit. Research & Development is very important to the Trust and there are very strong links with the University of Essex and Anglia Ruskin University.



Do you want to return to mental health nursing? NEP offers a three month part-time course (including placement as a student nurse). Upon completion of a successful assessment, you will be a registered nurse again.
