Consultant Psychiatrist - Specialised Services (Offender Health)
- Full Time
This is a substantive post, however, applications for a Locum 12 month contract will also be considered. Please indicate in your supporting information your preference.
Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust (AWP), along with partner Hanham Secure Health, have been awarded the contract for Offender Healthcare Services in five prisons: HMP Bristol, HMP Eastwood Park, HMP Ashfield, HMP Leyhill and HMP Erlestoke.
This partnership called InspireBetterHealth, is led by AWP, as prime contractor.
A unique opportunity has arisen for a Consultant Psychiatrist to work within the Offender Health team to offer leadership and clinical assurance for the AWP mental health services that sit within InspireBetterHealth.
The postholder, who will be employed by AWP, will provide Consultant input into the Mental Health Team at HMP Bristol (their counterpart covers HMP Eastwood Park and the NEXUS personality disorder service). The post holder will also have sessional clinical responsibilities at HMP Leyhill, HMP Ashfield and HMP Erlestoke.
This well-established post will offer the postholder an exciting and forward looking opportunity to work in a fully integrated healthcare service, including Hanham Secure Health and a number of smaller subcontractors in delivering comprehensive healthcare across the five prisons.
We are looking for enthusiastic and flexible candidates who are committed to working in a multidisciplinary setting. All posts attract relevant Direct Clinical Care and Supporting professional activities and offer excellent CPD and study leave arrangements as well as good research, service development, teaching and quality improvement opportunities.
