Mental Health – Guild Lodge Recruitment Open Day

Come and meet our Inpatient teams at our Recruitment event on:
Friday 21st June 2024 at Guild Lodge, Whittingham Lane, Preston, PR3 2JH.
We are open between 10:00-14:00

Guild Lodge is Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust’s secure mental health inpatient hospital.

Guild Lodge, opened in July 1999, comprising of three medium secure wards and one low secure ward with a total of 54 male and female beds. We have expanded and now provide 154 beds across different levels of security (Medium, Low and Step Down). We have pathways for men and women from Lancashire and South Cumbria.  We also have a specialist pathway for men with an Acquired Brain Injury that accepts national referrals.

We provide high standards of care for people with complex mental health care needs, in a secure environment that safeguards them, our staff, and the general public. Service users and their careers are given the opportunity to be involved, as far as is practicable, in planning and developing their own treatment and care. This helps ensure that it is delivered in a way that is as appropriate and effective for them as possible underpinned by recovery principles.

Service users are able to access a wide range of therapies and activities to support their recovery including psychological therapies, occupational and vocational opportunities, and skills development. We have a varied multi-disciplinary team including doctors, nurses, occupational therapists, psychologists and a Primary Care Team.

We have some amazing teams within our Men’s, Women’s, Acquired Brain Injury and Admin & Clerical teams that will be there on the day to speak to you about their service, opportunities and Guild Lodge.

We have the following roles available:

Band 2 and 3 Administrator/Receptionist

Band 3 Health Care Support Worker

Band 5 Staff Nurse

Band 6 Senior Staff Nurse

We will be offering  walk-in interviews on the day for our Band 5 and Band 6 Nursing vacancies.
