Our learning disability teams also offer specialist advice and support to others involved in caring for someone with a learning disability.

As a teaching trust, we are committed to conducting research and provide training and education for medical, psychology, and nursing and therapy students.

We offer a wide range of posts with these services, for established practitioners such as psychiatrists, consultants, mental health nurses, therapists, as well as healthcare support workers. We also have an increasing number of roles for those looking to grow their career working in mental health such as trainee nurse associates and clinical apprenticeships.
