Caring and compassionate? Cygnet Healthcare wants to hear from you if you are diligent and keen to develop your nursing career.

Our specially built hospital and first-class facilities are home to an integrated and multidisciplinary team. We provide care across four specialist wards, including psychiatric intensive care, Specialist Female Personality Disorder Service and a low security ward for women, and a men-only Low Secure Ward. In line with our focus on recovery and reintegration, our hospital is ideally located for access to local community facilities and step down settings within the Cygnet family.

The aim on Bowling Ward is to support service users with highly complex problems to learn how to have good emotional management, to reduce problems with emotional dysregulation and those associated with a diagnosis of emotionally unstable personality disorder.

The service also aims to help people manage their mental health and facilitate recovery. This is a service which delivers evidence based treatment to effectively support women with a significant history of trauma. The ward can support detained and informal service users via individualized risk assessment and management.

Care on Bowling is underpinned by a comprehensive Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) programme. DBT is has a robust evidence-base for treating problems associated with a diagnosis of Borderline/Emotionally unstable Personality Disorder. Furthermore, DBT is recommended by NICE (2009) for reducing self-harm behaviours. Whilst this is a rehabilitation service, it is highly specialised in terms of the programme it runs.

We are looking for an RMN who thrives in the face of fast moving, pressured situations and delivers top quality care. Working in our Specialist Female Personality Disorder Service you’ll provide a safe and secure environment. You’ll also receive excellent staff benefits.
