Applications are invited for the post of Consultant in Liaison Psychiatry
(Psychological Medicine) in the Psychological Medicine Service of Oxford
University Hospitals, a large acute Foundation Trust.

and research in the integration of psychiatry and psychology into medical care.
The appointee will work alongside a large number of psychiatrists and psychologists, who are integrated into medical teams across the Trust.
The specialty area for this post will be negotiated depending on expertise, experience and clinical need – possible areas of work include clinical neurosciences, oncology, specialist medicine, surgery, and acute medicine.
This is a Trust appointment with a base at the John Radcliffe Hospital site.
The appointment is on a whole-time basis. However, applications are welcome from those who wish to job share. Any person who is unable for personal reasons to work full-time will also be considered eligible to apply for the post. If such a person is appointed, modification of the job content will be discussed on a personal basis in consultation with consultant colleagues.
This post would suit a psychiatrist with a CCT in adult psychiatry or a dual CCT in adult and old age psychiatry and experience of working in an acute hospital setting.
