Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust's Guild Lodge is one of the countries secure mental health services and is offering people the chance to attend an open day to gain an insight into what it's like working there. The event is taking place, on Saturday, 4 March 2017, from 10am to 3pm and will allow people the opportunity to learn about the training and development opportunities on offer, tour the different areas of Guild Lodge and chat to existing nursing staff about their experiences. The open day is a great opportunity for nurses to come along and see for themselves what it's like to work in a mental health environment such as Guild Lodge before they apply for the roles on offer. "Guild Lodge is like a little community and it's so rewarding to see a patient move through the different levels of care provided here from medium secure right through to low secure, step down and eventually help them out into the community and it's really nice to be a part of that journey. Since working here I've had chance to work with people from lots of different backgrounds and it's really changed my view on working in a mental health hospital, I can't imagine ever wanting to work anywhere else!" said Josie Shaw, Health Care Assistant, Forest Beck ward (women's step down).

"I've learnt a lot about myself since I've been working here and have benefitted from the expertise of the people around me. There is always someone to offer help and support if you need it. We work really closely together within our wards and I'm confident that there are so many people I can pick up the phone or go and see if I need any help or advice. It's great to know that we're helping people on their journey towards recovery and making a difference to their lives." added Tinashe Ncube, Ward Manager, Langden ward (men's Acquired Brain Injury low secure). Guild Lodge provides a diverse range of services which each offer a wide range of career opportunities including medium secure, low secure and step down services, acquired brain injury (ABI) services and occupational therapy.
