Job Details

The service will deliver a needs led service and therefore the post holders will be expected to manage those above 65 until such time as their needs are more appropriately met by the Older Persons Mental Health Services (transition arrangements are under review).

The CMHT has an overall caseload of 350. It is expected that the post holder will see patients when required by the care coordinator and act as care coordinator for a small case load.
Main duties of the job

The post holder will be based with the CMHT and work with the integrated/single line team manager to ensure clinical leadership of the multi-disciplinary team.

The post holder will assist with clinical supervision of the team ensuring that robust management plans are in place for those in whom it is warranted. This will be done as part of a meeting structure where the most clinically complex patients are discussed and reviewed with the whole team.

It is anticipated that the post holder will assist in training of team members in clinical matters.

The post holder will work collaboratively with the Acute Care Services (inpatient and Home Treatment (HTT)). The community consultant is responsible for the longer term planning and provision of section 117 aftercare arrangements and the provision of suitable reports for Mental Health Act appeals.

The post holders will provide consultation and supervision for Primary Mental Health Services in their catchment area.
