Clinical Nurse Specialists
React Support Services employs Clinical Nurse Specialists with experience of working in secure services and in community settings. Our Clinical Nurse Specialists have experience in working in Forensic Services, Female Services, Secure Personality Disorder Services and Community Based Personality Disorder Services.
Our Clinical Nurse Specialists shape the positive clinically reflective culture of the organisation, ensuring that the individual services user is placed at the centre of service delivery. The Clinical Nurse Specialists provide staff training to ensure that the staff teams are equipped to work with the complex needs of the individuals placed with us. They are available for staff supervision, clinical oversight and crisis intervention where required. The Clinical Nurse Specialists are available to discuss our service delivery to individuals with all of our multi-agency partners.
All of the Individuals referred for placement with React are assessed by a Clinical Nurse Specialist. The assessment process involves dialogue with the referrer, the commissioner and any other relevant clinicians or professionals involved in service delivery. Initial care plans will identify outcomes to be achieved that are agreed with the service user, commissioners, care co-ordinators and other relevant professionals.
Care Plans will identify the factors that necessitate placement in our services and will identify interventions for our staff team that are designed to reduce or manage the impact of those factors thereby ensuring that progress toward greater independence is maintained as a priority.
