This role will be supported by a £12,000 relocation allowance
This is a great opportunity for an enthusiastic Consultant Psychiatrist to join NSFT working in West Norfolk supporting both the Early Intervention and Youth teams.
The Early Intervention in Psychosis (EIP) team works with young people from the age of 14 presenting with symptoms suggestive of psychosis and provides assessment and treatment in line with the EIP standards set nationally. The Youth team works with young people aged between 14- and 25-years old presenting with significant mental health issues. This post supports both teams and so allows for greater collaboration across for those young people presenting with mixed symptoms and potential at risk mental states.
Main duties of the job
This role will provide Consultant level support to both the EIP and Youth teams in terms of being part of the MDT discussions and interventions offered to those accessing the services.
The role also entails a high level of clinical leadership in terms of both supporting service developments as well as maintaining good clinical governance and assurance that the services are safe and effective.
NSFT is committed to promoting clinical leadership at all levels and there are lots of opportunities to get involved in this as a Consultant joining the organisation.
Norfolk's CFYP services are very involved in working with the wider system to develop mental health services in Norfolk as part of the local transformation plan. We have developed joint working strategies across organisations and are working with commissioners to make things as seamless as possible for young people and their families.
NSFT have a supportive group of Consultants with regular CPD groups and the ability to provide mentoring as required. We also support clinicians accessing CPD and study leave regularly. We have a very active research team and Consultants can get involved with this if they would like as well as joining the team teaching at the UEA medical school in a variety of roles.
Most importantly, we want and expect your voice to be heard.
We want you to help us to continue to build a service delivering excellence.
This is a fulltime (10 session) role with 7.5 clinical sessions including clinics and team meetings and 2.5 SPAs which can be used for a range of activities as well as CPD to be discussed with the Clinical Director.
