We have an exciting opportunity to appoint two 8PA Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists. Part of our mission at GOSH is to integrate physical and mental health care in conjunction with providing tertiary level specialist mental health care for complex children. Each post will involve leading a specialist tertiary referral service within the Department of Child and Adolescent Mental Health. Each role will also involve contributing a specialist and general input to liaison psychiatry throughout the hospital – with at least a core element of the liaison related to the specialism of the post.

Position 1: 8PA Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist with a special interest in autism and psychiatric aspects of neurodisability. The Social Communications Disorders Team is a national specialist service assessing and treating children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorders.  There is increasingly close working with the paediatric neurodisability services. Two PA’s of the post will involve liaison psychiatry work in relation to children with neurodevelopmental and neuropsychiatric disorders especially in neurology, genetics, metabolic medicine, as well as general liaison psychiatry as needed.
