Consultant Psychiatrist in Adult Inpatient
EPUT is looking to appoint an enthusiastic consultant to join our adult inpatient team who work on Galleywood which is an 18-bedded female single-sex treatment ward. The successful candidate will be expected to provide clinical leadership whilst working closely with the ward manager. The ward is situated adjacent to Finchingfield ward a 17 bedded male acute unit with shared therapy teams.
Patients are initially admitted to a separate assessment ward unless they are detained under the Mental Health Act when they can be admitted directly to Galleywood. A small proportion of informal patients are admitted to treatment wards (such as Galleywood) after a period of assessment on the assessment unit and when further treatment is deemed necessary.
There is a fully functional Consultant-led Home First team which works closely with the in-patient teams to conduct gate-keeping assessments as well as facilitation of early discharge from hospital.
A generous recruitment premia is payable along with relocation allowance (conditions apply) to the successful candidate.
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.
