CONSULTANT in GENERAL ADULT COMMUNITY PSYCHIATRY

Wester Ross, Skye and Lochalsh

0.8 – 1.0 WTE Permanent Post

£84,984 - £112,925 per annum

We seek to appoint a self-motivated Clinician with an enthusiasm for General Adult Community Psychiatry to join our team of Psychiatrists in NHS Highland.  This post offers the opportunity to be a Psychiatrist to a population spread across a number of remote and rural communities that are well supported by community health teams, colleagues in Primary care and Rural General Hospitals.  The recent pandemic has accelerated our existing capacity to deliver this service using digital technology, which opens up further opportunity to the post holder.  The post would be based in the Mental Health Service in the South and Mid Operational Unit but due to the geography covered by the post it would be possible for the post holder to live in any part of the sector itself or closer to Inverness.  This post could be done on a part time (0.8 WTE) basis or full time with the inclusion of a special interest in keeping with service clinical strategy.

Applicants must be on the GMC specialist register in General Adult Psychiatry or within 6 months of award of CCT by date of interview as consideration can be given to appoint on a proleptic basis.

This post requires participation in the Consultant on call rota at New Craigs Hospital.  Applications for flexible working will be considered

Interested applicants should contact Dr Amy Macaskill, Clinical Lead, General Adult Psychiatry, New Craigs Hospital, Inverness on amy.macaskill@nhs.scot.  Prospective applicants are most welcome to contact us in order to arrange an informal visit.
