Consultant Psychiatrist, Perinatal CMHT, 10 PAs

We’re looking for an amazing colleague to join our fantastic recently established Perinatal service, with an exciting opportunity to participate in shaping the future development of the Specialist Perinatal Community
Mental Health team.

The post holder will join an extensive MDT including Psychologists, Mental Health Practitioners, Occupational Therapists, Nursery Nurses, Pharmacist and Peer Support Workers. The Perinatal Consultant Psychiatrists already in post are passionate and experienced in perinatal mental health and meet regularly for peer support.

Our perinatal service operates on a hub and spoke model, with 3 clusters, covering Lancashire & South Cumbria. This post would cover East/Central Lancashire and has dedicated medical secretarial support. Our perinatal service is integrated with a fantastic state of the art Mother & Baby Unit at Chorley District Hospital. We would strongly encourage interested applicants to arrange a visit with our team and come and see our MBU and Perinatal team colleagues.

Lancashire & South Cumbria services are within easy reach of the Lake District, Forest of Bowland, Blackpool, Southport and the Yorkshire Moors, as well as the historic cities of Lancaster, Manchester, Preston, Liverpool and the market towns of Garstang, Clitheroe, Chorley and Bury.

Surrounded by areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a move to this culturally enriched area could combine working with amazing colleagues and a fantastic life outside of work, ranging from fine dining, wonderful cycling routes, and lovely scenic walks to thriving night life and busy city centres with fantastic shopping at the Trafford centre and Liverpool 1. There are excellent state schools in the region including high performing grammar schools. Excellent transport links, including Manchester and Liverpool international airports mean that everything is within easy reach.

With opportunities to develop as a Clinical Supervisor and research, along with a £8k relocation package available, we would really encourage interested applicants to get in touch and we can arrange a visit to the unit/team also. We would love to hear from you!
