Consultant Psychiatrist

Richmond Recovery and Support Team 10PAs


Are you ready to join our dynamic community mental health services which are undergoing an exciting and innovative transformation! We are looking for consultants with the interest and skills in providing strong medical leadership to take our services forward.  

We are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic and motivated General Adult Consultant Psychiatrist to work in our Richmond Recovery and Support Team based at the well located Barnes Hospital in newly refurbished accommodation.

COVID-19 has brought with it many challenges but it has also shown us other ways of effective working that look set to be adopted moving forward.  This includes agile working and the smart use of technology for both appointments with service users and staying connected to colleagues. Talk to us about how that could make a difference in your life.

We are a dynamic, financially stable mental health trust which has consistently been rated ‘good’ by the CQC. We’re small enough to be a friendly Trust, but big enough to have internationally-recognised, innovative and ground-breaking services. We have an integrated academic programme, an established quality improvement programme, and good links with our local universities. We’re widely known for the quality of our training, for treating everyone as individuals, and for supporting consultants to develop external roles and special interests. We’re in a beautiful, leafy part of one of the world’s greatest capital cities and are currently spending over £150 million rebuilding our main hospitals – it’s an exciting time to join!


The team provides care for working age adults who live in Richmond and experience severe or enduring mental illness. Richmond RST works alongside one other Richmond based RST, with care provided according to GP/PCN alignment.

The post sits within a well-established MDT that works alongside a separate Consultant-led Assessment team and interfaces with a Consultant-led Home Treatment Team and in-patient wards. There are also specialist teams for Early Intervention in Psychosis, Personality Disorder and adult ADHD.

The post-holder will be one of two consultants providing joint leadership and responsibility for the clinical care delivered by the team, for the provision of training for core and higher psychiatry trainees, and the teaching of St George’s University of London Medical Students. They will work closely with a Team manager, an advanced clinical practitioner and a dedicated Clinical Service Manager for the Borough (8b). Supervisory support is available from the Associate Clinical Director.

There is on site car parking and Barnes and Mortlake stations are a 7 minute walk. Both stations provide South Western Railway services to Clapham Junction and Waterloo. Barnes Hospital is a 5 minute walk from the Mortlake riverside. Richmond town centre and Green, Kew Gardens and Richmond Royal Park are in the vicinity.

If you are a dynamic established consultant psychiatrist fully registered with the GMC as well as holding Approved Clinician and S12 approval under the Mental Health Act. or a specialist trainee within six months of inclusion on the Specialist Register and would be keen to be involved in developing and expanding the service, we would like to hear from you.
