You need to have a minimum of 2 years relevant post qualification experience to work in Birmingham’s Out of Hours Service and demonstrate significant knowledge around the requirements of the Care Act and support falling within this legislation.

You will undertake Mental Health Act Assessments (if approved as an AMHP) as part of a planned shift.

BCC is committed to providing a variety of Continuing Professional Development, and reflective practice opportunities, this will include a well-developed training programme, support groups, AMHP forums and team action learning activities.
