Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust is the main provider of specialist mental health services for the counties of Norfolk and Suffolk, serving a population of 1.6 million.

As Consultant you will provide clinical care and leadership. This role will provide you with the opportunity to play a key strategic role in service design and redevelopment. Not only are we striving to continually improve our model of care but we have been successful in securing the funding to build a new inpatient unit on site.

Main duties of the job

More than three quarters (77%) of people in Norwich say that they love their job

Norwich is one of the few UK cities that can truly boast to having something for everyone. It has retained a strong local identity, and with that, a strong sense of community. Locals say hello to each other, baristas remember our coffee orders, and you'll be among the first to know about interesting local projects.

This strong sense of community, along with excellent shopping, eating out, affordable house prices and excellent schooling, is why Norwich has been ranked by the Guardian as the UKs best city to work in.

With its sandy beaches and beautiful surrounds, the Norfolk coastline is not to be missed. With 90 miles to explore, you'll soon learn why it has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. You'd never guess you were only two hours away from central London!
