Job Description

Consultant in Acute Inpatient Adult Psychiatry

Aberdare, Wales

Salary - ~£130,000 - £150,000

We are currently assisting a growing private provider of mental health services in the recruitment of a Consultant Psychiatrist to work in a newly commissioned, Acute Mental Health hospital in Aberdare, South Wales. The hospital has been designed to world class standards and is due to take on patients within a couple of months. The organisation are keen to bring on a Consultant to work on a permanent, full time basis, who can not only lead the clinical staff, but also provide strategic input into the development of the service. There may be scope to offer part-time hours and to supplement the work at this service with work at another of the company's services in South Wales.

The post holder will work within the 20 bed Acute unit for individuals detained under the MHA or who are admitted to hospital informally. Most patients are admitted directly or have been stepped down from a PICU. Patients will generally be experiencing difficulties due to a range of conditions including bipolar disorder, psychosis, depression, personality disorder, self-harm, dual diagnosis, acute mental illness, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and others. The aim of the unit is to rehabilitate patients for discharge directly into the community.

As well as working with an established MDT the role holder will have an input in shaping the staffing and care pathways provided as the service admits more patients and establishes itself within the community.

Candidate Requirements

- All role holders must have completed their Specialist training and have a CCT/CCST

- Registration to practice with the GMC

- Specialisation accreditation in Adult/General or Forensic Psychiatry

- Excellent communication skills and ability to lead an MDT

- A desire to help other

All candidates will be subject to DBS checks and must be authorised to practice in the UK.
