Description

At Turning Point we support people with substance use issues across the country.

As a nurse in our Slough Service, you'll make a real difference to the lives of those experiencing difficulties from drugs and alcohol usage. Passionate about people, you'll enjoy the opportunity and support to enhance your own life and career too, as you gain the experience and training you need to progress in your nursing career.

Our Drug and Alcohol Wellbeing Service ‘START’ offers support to individuals in Slough, East Berkshire. You will work within a busy service under the supervision of our Clinical Lead and Operations Manager to improve the wellbeing of a wide range of individuals.

Running health and social care services as a social enterprise, we invest every penny back into our care - and our people. So, if you're ambitious and ready for a fresh challenge, progress your career with a sector leader.

As a Specialist Substance Use Nurse you will be involved with supporting opiate substitute treatment, alcohol and opiate detoxifications and promoting the uptake of naloxone. You will also provide support to the team providing Blood Borne Virus screening and vaccinations and will work closely with mental health, physical health and social care services. You'll also help to create a collaborative approach that links Turning Point ever closer to outside professionals and agencies.
