Consultant in General Adult Community
EPUT is looking to appoint an enthusiastic consultant to join our adult community psychiatry team (Psychosis Pathway) based at The Gables, Braintree who will cover the districts of Chelmsford, Braintree, Witham and Maldon. The consultant will have shared responsibility for the clinical care of the patients within the mental health clusters 10-17 who are deemed to require secondary mental health intervention and will be expected to work closely with the team manager to ensure the provision of an effective service. The role involves regular reviews of patients who have already been assessed by the Access and Assessment team as meeting the criteria for secondary mental health service within the psychosis clusters. The team aims to develop a comprehensive treatment package based on best evidence in order to promote recovery from mental illness including working closely with primary care colleagues.
The ability to work with patients who may have had a challenging background with a history of non-engagement is desirable
Essex has so much to offer and mid Essex is a rapidly expanding part of the country. Historic towns thrive alongside modern communities, and traditional industries are complemented by high-tech and service sector newcomers. Road and rail links with London and the rest of the country are very good and is only 40 minutes away by train from the entertainment and attractions of London.
Housing stock is of a high quality and there are wide amenities for shopping and leisure. There is a choice of educational provision for all ages, from pre-school to higher education at private, selective and good quality primary and comprehensive schools; Chelmsford is the ‘home’ to two of the best single sex grammar schools in the country.
For leisure pursuits, Mid Essex has something for both participants and followers and much of Mid Essex has remained off the beaten track but has retained a sense of continuity and community.
