In the feature, Claire Shaw, head of nursing for Adult and Forensic Services here at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, discusses our work linking up with nurses outside the Trust, including our monthly Nursing in Mind event. 

Antonia Carding, Alex Duckworth, and Jonathan Creedy highlight their nursing work as part of the multi-disciplinary work at Camden Adolescent Intensive Support Service (CAISS), while Kirsty Brant discusses the vital work of a nurse at Gloucester House.

CAISS is a multidisciplinary team offering intensive support to young people in crisis to keep them safe and out of hospital. The team features experts from different specialties who work together to assess and treat patients, including nurses, psychiatrists, social workers and occupational therapists, and works directly with Camden’s community mental health service, local schools and other children’s services. In 2017, CAISS was shortlisted for Nursing Times 'Team of the Year'. 

Gloucester House is a leading school for children (aged 5-14yrs) with social, emotional and mental health difficulties. Nursing plays a critical element in our role to promote health and wellbeing in the children who come here. This year Gloucester House celebrates its 50th anniversary with a special conference event.
