Consultant Psychiatrist – Lilacs Ward (Acute Psychiatric Ward), Full-time, 10 PAs 

We are a dynamic, financially stable mental health trust which has consistently been rated ‘good’ by the CQC both overall and specifically for our acute & urgent care services. We are several years into a Trust Wide quality improvement programme involving all clinicians, which is already delivering results. We have invested in further improvements to our acute and urgent care services, including one of the UK’s first mental health A&Es (now evolving into a mobile service), as well as Recovery Cafes and a Psychiatric Decision Unit.

We’re small enough to be a friendly Trust, but big enough to have internationally-recognised, innovative and sometimes 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. We’re currently spending over £150million rebuilding our main hospitals – it’s an exciting time to join!

The ward has a full multidisciplinary team including consultant, junior doctors, psychologists, OTs, specialist nurses, activity workers, healthcare assistants, ward clerks and team managers.
