NHS Tayside is seeking to appoint to 2 WTE Specialty Doctor Psychiatry posts within the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service Outpatient services in NHS Tayside. Applicants wishing to work part-time will be considered.
The successful candidate will be working within a multidisciplinary CAMHS team to provide a patient-centred service for children and young people who may have mental health difficulties or a neurodevelopmental disorder. There is also a service provided for younger children with the Paediatric service and in the future it is hoped these services will work together for the benefit of Tayside’s children
NHS Tayside serves a population of 415,000 with approximately 20% of our total population under the age of 18 years. Tayside CAMHS provides mental health assessment and treatment services for children and young people up to the time they leave school or are 18 years of age, with current plans to expand so that we see all young people up to the age of 18.
The appointee will be based in Tayside where Dundee is the principal city. It is situated on the north bank of the Tay and is conveniently near the three other large cities in Scotland - Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen. London is six hours by rail and just over an hour by air. There is a flourishing arts scene in Dundee and beyond and the new V&A Museum of Design opened recently. The river and its estuary, the coasts of Angus and Fife and the nearby hills and mountains of Perthshire offer scope for almost any outdoor activity. There is a good range of relatively inexpensive housing in both Dundee and Perth and in the surrounding countryside. The medical school was originally part of the University of St. Andrews, but became the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Dundee when the latter received its Charter in 1967. The present annual intake of medical students is 150 and the total number of students at the University is c.11,000.
