The Norfolk and Waveney Community Perinatal Mental Health Service (PMH) is seeking a Specialty Doctor to join its Community Perinatal Mental Health team. You will have an exciting opportunity to join an expanding Community Perinatal Mental Health Service including a Maternal Mental Health Service in partnership with local maternity services.

Parent-Infant therapy, family therapy and increased partner support is being developed further alongside the offer of preconception counselling and the assessment and management of both the acute and the complex perinatal mental health presentations.

The PMH Service is delivering on its access targets and has had agreed funds to expand in keeping with the NHSE Long Term Plan. The Service takes pride in providing a range of therapeutic interventions and peer support and is committed to the co-production of the developing Service with women who have or have had lived experience.

Main duties of the job

The perinatal world is small but also relies on close inter-agency relations with colleagues ranging from Obstetricians to Neurologists to GPs on the medical front, to Midwives and Nursery Nurses on the maternity front, to a panoply of therapists not to mention third sector and service user/patient advocacy groups.

We are looking thus for someone who can communicate with a wide spectrum of people to achieve the best level of care when making difficult decisions. Someone who can lead the MDT in ward rounds and CPA meetings, collaborate with a young person's wider family and community support structures and work with all to fashion a planned and creative transition towards discharge and beyond.

About us

We invite applications for doctors from different specialty backgrounds as long as imbued with a passion for the perinatal period. Relevant experience varies widely as the work encompasses the biological and immunological, forensic, psychotherapeutic (individual, systemic and parent-infant) as well as social worlds.

Responsibilities include

  • Providing medical treatment within a model of multi-disciplinary care
  • Supporting prescribing of medication
  • Physical health monitoring
  • Preparing clinical reports
  • Liaising with other clinical teams within and outside the Trust

 


Job description
Job responsibilities

This is an exciting time to join the Perinatal Norfolk team as we commit to growing a team already delivering excellence and one shaped by strong clinical leaders.

NSFT are committed to Quality Improvement and have paired up with East London Foundation Trust to train and develop our staff in the understanding of QI and how to implement this in our teams
