An exciting new opportunity has arisen within our service for an experienced Consultant Psychiatrist to support the development of our new Forensic CAMHS service, to work part-time (4PA) within the Community Forensic CAMHS team which provides comprehensive community based services to patients registered with GP's within Dorset.

The post holder will need to be innovative and able to work flexibly across traditional service and agency boundaries. They will be given a high level of support to deliver what is a key priority for the Trust. 

The service is a tertiary referral service for CAMHS teams, CAMHS/Youth Offending Team (YOT) link workers and neuro disability services for young people and other agencies. The team will be accessible to all agencies (e.g. social services, YOTs, prisons, courts, solicitors, education, health commissioners etc.) that may have contact with young people exhibiting risky behaviours or young people in the youth justice system who have mental health difficulties.

Dorset offers an extremely attractive working and living environment. There are good transport links eastwards to Southampton and London and easy access to the West Country. Dorset has varied countryside, stunning coast and beaches and beautiful villages with the advantage of significant urban centres, high quality recreation, leisure and educational facilities. The Dorset coast path is a World Heritage site and rural Dorset is remarkably unspoilt. The New Forest National Park is also on our eastern boundary.

Employment in this post requires a Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.  The DBS levies a charge of £44 and the Trust will recover this cost in instalments from your first 3 salary payments.  This will only apply to candidates who are new to the Trust and not internal staff.

Applicants who subscribe to the DBS update service and are able to present a valid DBS certificate will not incur a charge.
