The post will be jointly funded by King Street Surgery and Bedfordshire Directorate.

The post is structured around a 10 session week, however applications from those seeking less-than-full-time working patterns will considered. The split between primary care and mental health will be agreed individually with the successful applicant but a working week with four sessions in primary care, four sessions working in mental health and two funded academic sessions is suggested.
