Specialist mental health and learning disability services

Are you in need of a mental health nurse, learning disability nurse or healthcare assistant? The Scottish Nursing Guild is a specialist nursing recruitment agency that can provide cover for mental health nursing shifts across Scotland and Ireland.

The Guild’s mental health and specialist community teams work closely together, supporting service users who need care at home or in the community. Our teams are experienced in arranging cover to follow service users from setting to setting, ensuring continuity of care whether the service user is in hospital or at home.

We recruit highly skilled mental health nurses and healthcare assistants with recent experience and carefully evaluated references.

What we offer

We understand that as a healthcare provider, you will have unique needs and requirements. Therefore, we provide mental health nurses for both short and long-term cover as part of our mental health nursing services.

Our highly skilled team of mental health nurses are experienced in providing care to patients with a range of mental health conditions. Due to the nature of their shifts, they can conduct effective risk assessments and manage challenging patients, which enables them to provide care at the highest quality to all patients.

What makes our mental health nurses different?

As a mental health nursing agency, we understand that high quality care cannot be compromised, even when shifts are last minute or nurses are needed in difficult circumstances. Therefore, we provide highly skilled mental health nurses and healthcare assistants for these occasions. Some of the qualities that set our nurses apart are:

  • The ability to work independently and as part of a team depending on the needs of the patient.
  • Adaptability to work in different situations and settings, both in hospitals and communities
  • The ability to effectively assess risk and manage challenging patients.
  • Willingness to go above and beyond what is expected to ensure the best possible service of care is delivered.
  • Willingness to travel and support clients when no one else can.
  • Availability to cover either one-off shifts, or provide longer-term, temporary shift cover.
