Summary of the Role

We have an exciting opportunity to join our expanding talented team as an Expert by Experience Quality Checker (Mental Health).  We are seeking a Quality Checker with lived experience of mental ill health and the criminal justice system to visit mental health settings, and settings where people may be subject to legal restrictions due to a forensic background.

The Quality Checker will be responsible for working alongside a Quality Checking Coordinator in carrying out Quality Checks focusing on services supporting people with needs around Mental Health.

We are commissioned by Gloucestershire County Council to carry out quality checks at Residential homes, Assessment and Treatment Units, Supported Living, Day Care and private settings across the county and sometimes out of the county.  We also visit settings where individuals with mental ill health are subject to legal restrictions due to a criminal justice background.  The purpose of these checks is to ensure that people with care and support needs who live in these settings are safe, healthy and happy, and that the care that they receive is appropriate to their needs.

You will work alongside a Quality Checking Coordinator and will visit people in settings to gather information regarding their quality of life and the quality of care and support they have. You will be responsible for asking most of the questions at the Quality Check, and at any follow up visit, and will be responsible for providing your feedback for the report findings. The Coordinator is responsible for arranging the Quality Check, the follow ups and for compiling the final report for the Commissioners and Providers. Hours are flexible and allocated according to the needs of the Quality Check.

This role may require Covid-19 vaccination due to the work with adults who have care and support needs.
