Job Details

A great opportunity has arisen for a Consultant to take up the new role of Crisis and Assessment Consultant in our redesigned all age multidisciplinary initial assessment service. At a time when services are becoming more and more specialised this is brilliant opportunity to work across the age range with a broad range of conditions. It is a responsive 24-hour service that will see urgent and routine assessments and formulate the initial plan of care.

It is an exciting time to come to Jersey. We are in the middle of the comprehensive programme to transform health and social care, including redesigning mental health services and a new hospital project. Jersey is a prosperous island with much closer interaction with political processes than the UK which creates unique potential to shape how we deliver health care.
This new role has arisen through significant new investment in mental health services (including expansion of Consultant and Staff grade numbers, a refurbished inpatient unit, development of specialist services and a home treatment team) and you would be joining a team of 12 Consultant Psychiatrists. Caseload numbers and staffing are again very manageable compared with the UK.

Situated just 40 minutes flying time from London with excellent transport links to Europe the small beautiful Island of Jersey is the sunniest place in the UK, has great sandy beaches surrounded by soaring cliffs and offers a healthy work-life balance. There are excellent opportunities for a wide range of outdoor activities including sailing, diving, kayaking and paddle boarding. Jersey has the ideal lifestyle and work environment. I would encourage you to come and try it for yourself!

Full travelling expenses are paid from a UK port of entry, with a generous relocation package available, generous pension scheme (not subject to UK annual or lifetime limits) and the appointee may take advantage of Jersey taxation policies. The post attracts residential qualifications and Jersey has excellent affordable private education for children. Under Jersey Law, applicants must possess FULL registration with the General Medical Council and hold a licence to practise.

Please feel free to contact the Consultant Leads Dr Rachel Ruddy or Professor Max Marshall 01534 445894 for more information or for a discussion.
