Consultant General Adult Psychiatrist - Home Treatment Team
An existing Consultant General Adult Psychiatrist post within the Newham Home Treatment Team has become available due to the previous substantive post-holder retiring.
The Newham Home Treatment Team is an integral part of the innovative Newham crisis pathway which has recently received significant investment to provide a seamless offer between hospital, Home Treatment and the community. This is a particularly exciting time to join services in Newham as it is embarking on a largescale transformation of community services following a successful bid by ELFT to NHS England for substantial pilot funding to meet the NHS long term plan objectives.
Newham also hosts a WHO Collaborating Centre (the only one specifically for Mental Health Service Development in the world) and the successful applicant will have opportunities for academic links with the Centre Director Professor Stephan Priebe, and its large research group in social psychiatry and global mental health. The option for job planned time for research activity will be actively considered. He/she will also be enrolled on the Trusts highly regarded Improvement Science in Action training and will be encouraged to contribute to our unique Quality Improvement programme.
