Consultant in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
Applications are invited for a 9-session substantive Consultant in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry to work across the Cardiff and Vale University Health Board, based in Cardiff at St David’s Childrens Centre or Llandough Children’s Centre.
The Cardiff and Vale Specialist CAMH Service is a caring multidisciplinary team working within a developing wider system of emotional wellbeing and mental health services. The team works within the philosophy of the Choice and Partnership Approach (CAPA) with an established commitment to staff development and support to ensure we provide the quality of intervention and care to children, young people and their families to which we aspire.
SCAMHS comprises a Generic team, nurse led Crisis team, Community Intensive Therapy Team (CITT), a developing ED service and Forensic CAMHS as well as strong links to regional and national services including LD CAMHS, Young Peoples Drug and Alcohol services, and neighbouring SCAMHS. As part of the Community Child Health Directorate there are good links with our Community Paediatric colleagues who lead the neurodevelopment assessments of ASD and ADHD with psychiatry input.
There is a commitment to a 1 in 18, 2nd on call out-of-hours service across the Cardiff and Vale, Cwm Taf and Swansea Bay areas and the successful candidate would join a supportive consultant peer group both within Cardiff but also this wider area.
