We are delighted at the prospect of recruiting a Mental Health Practitioner to join our busy and dynamic Wiltshire Outreach Service for Children and Adolescents (OSCA) in the Oxford Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service . You would be part of our multi-disciplinary team which offers three approaches to care delivery, namely, Outreach, DBT and Crisis Care.
